Since One Direction burst onto the music scene in 2010 after coming third on The X Factor, they've amassed a combined total of 82.5 MILLION followers on Twitter - making getting noticed by one of the boys a pretty challenging task.

5. Grafitti his name on your bedroom wall. (Zayn) WARNING: this may not go down too well with your parents.

6. Pose as a safety inspector with a specialty in securing snake habitats. (Liam)

10. Give up and aim for a follow from the best fake accounts instead.
