The boys are greeted by hundreds of Directionettes on the way to an appearance on Chatty Man

Excitement is building about their mysterious debut single, so it’s no surprise that One Direction were mobbed outside their hotel ahead of their recent appearance on Alan Carr’s Chatty Man.

After stopping to sign autographs and pose for photos, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Liam Payne jumped in a car and headed to The London Studios – where they were met by an even bigger crowd! 

But it wasn’t just the fans who were hyped-up, the lads couldn’t wait to get filming.

‘We’re all excited, revved up, ready to go,’ said Zayn, 18.

‘We can’t wait to get there, let’s just hope Alan delivers!’

You’d better get used to all this attention, boys…
