The couple are joined by Louis' mum and her fiancé

Louis Tomlinson took his girlfriend Eleanor Calder for a romantic afternoon tea on the Orient Express yesterday.

One Direction singer Louis, 21 – whose ride on the luxury train was organised by Yorkshire Tea – also invited his mum Johannah and her fiancé Dan Deakin along on the trip.

‘Thankyou @YorkshireTea for having us on the Orient Express today! @louis_tomlinson @JohannahDarling @drdeakin,’ Tweeted Eleanor, 20, along with a cute photo of the foursome.

Louis loves having a cuppa and has often spoken about missing his British brews while on the road with 1D.

He’ll have been pleased that he got a fix before the group head out to Europe on their Take Me Home world tour this weekend – as were his mum and future stepfather.

‘@YorkshireTea Thank you so much for today! It was lovely to spend some time with @Louis_Tomlinson @EleanorJCalder @drdeakin xx,’ Tweeted Johannah.

Dan wrote: ‘Doncaster to London by car. Taxi. Orient Express trip. Taxi. Train back to Doncaster. Mum’s taxi. Cup of @YorkshireTea , Perfect.’
