Would the court please rise and stare in open mouthed shock at this judge - who hit the headlines after making a, quite frankly, shocking admission involving One Direction. 

Specifically, he revealed mid court case that he's never. heard. of. them. 

Excuse us we don't mean to be rude, but a) was he involved in an unfortunate accident which saw him buried under a pile of sand between the years 2010 - 2016 and b) the poor man.

55-year-old judge Lawrie was presiding over the trial of three individuals accused of selling fake 1D merchandise totalling £150,000 when he made the startling confession, telling the court: "Don't be surprised to hear that I have not heard of One Direction."

Au contrare, your honour, we are very surprised.

In what the Daily Express is calling 'comical scenes' (we're not laughing this is a serious matter) barrister Nick Lewin, informed the judge: "They are absolutely huge. They are collectively worth about £70 million. If you have not heard any of their music, then your honour is definitely blessed."

BRB setting up a kickstarter to sue barrister Nick Lewin for that last comment on the grounds that it is defamatory and also caused us unnecessary harm. (Can you tell that we binge watch The Good Wife? We're pretty much trained lawyers). 

The judge also went on to say that he's more of a Bach fan, to which we only have ONE THING to say. 

We're coming BACH for you BACH for you BACH for you. 

Ahem.
