Soo it's that time of year when X Factor contestants return to their hometowns for some 'emotional reunions' and such. One Direction got more of a MASS MOBBING in Manchester.
When it gets towards the end of X Factor, the producers like to set up all the contestants in some tear-jerking yet empowering segments showing them visiting their families and hometowns, and popping back to their old school where their teachers say something like 'Oh I could never stop them singing in class' or 'They were always so cheeky, who knew they had this in them!'
We imagine Cher's teacher might just cower back in the corner of the room and start screaming 'NO! The flashbacks! THE FLASHBACKS!' But that's just us.
So obvs there are 5 people in One Direction, and as they were created by Monsieur Cowell they're all from different places, so they're going on a bit of a tour of the UK. Woo!
Here they are looking lovely in Bradford. Aaahhh...
Don't they look calm and collected. You'd never even be able to tell they were attacked by hoardes of screaming fans outside the shop earlier.
Remember when X Factor showed everybody going into HMV to see their Help For Heroes CD on sale, and One Direction had loads of fans outside the shop that had to be restrained? Then they showed Mary walking in casually with no trouble at all?
Also, someone pointed out to us the other day how awkward it will be if Mary has to scan the winner's CD in Tesco. That would be awkward, but we imagine she has a lucrative career in cruise ship singing ahead of her now. She was pretty good that Mary.
Anyway, One Direction had loads of fans outside Bradford HMV waiting to get their keen little hands on the lovely boys, and they all managed to stay calm and look hot in the faces of danger.
Although it looked like Harry needed some emotional support at one point at least.

Who looked the fittest?
