Prepare yourselves, this is going to be one hell of a journey

If there was one thing (pun intended) guarenteed to brighten up a Monday morning, it was the brand new topless photos of One Direction's Harry Styles and Niall Horan that emerged on Twitter over the weekend. SOMEBODY HOLD US etc. etc.

The pics - which appear to be screengrabs from some sort of video of joy - show Harreh looking directly down the camera, pointing at you (yes YOU) as he attempts to send us all to an early grave by flashing a whole lot of shoulder and chest.

Nialler also got in on the shirtless action, and is seen having a casual stroll down a corridor HALF NAKED as if it aint no thang. Au contrare, monsieur Horan, it is a VERY big thang.

If, like us, these cheeky snaps have gone and given you an appetite for all things One Direction shirtless related then never fear - because to celebrate this momentous occasion we've gone and compiled an entire gallery of our favourite 1D topless moments ever. You can thank us once you've finished drooling/fainting/screaming.
