Ahhh we missed you!

It's seemed like an AGE since we were safe in the knowledge that One Direction were walking upon the same shores as us, but the boys have returned from their trip to the Swedish recording studios and are back in sunny Britain!

It seems like the boys are just as pleased as we are to be back the UK.

"So good to be home!!" tweeted Harry.

"Missed everyone :D #icantbelieveigotthesuitcasebackithadsomuchstuffinit ...good times.."

Louis' mum was tweeting her excitment about going to pick up her "Boo bear" (nice nickname Louis), and showbiz journo Dean Piper was lucky enough to see Harry Styles in the actual flesh.

"Just bumped into Harry Styles of One Direction. Sporting big curly locks right now.

"Cute! Such a polite boy."
