HE wasn’t there to
collect the award in person but Louis Tomlinson used his Instagram
account to thank fans for their support after One Direction won Best
Video at the Brits.
The 25-year-old recorded a heartfelt message accompanied by the caption: “THANK YOU SOOOOO F*****G MUCH !!”
Wearing a hoodie at his family home in Doncaster, Louis was clearly full of emotion as he delivered the personal message.
He said: “I just saw that we won the award for British Music Video,
absolutely incredible. I’ve said it so many times but you guys continue
to surprise us with your how incredible you are, over and over and over
and over again.
“This means a hell of lot to all of us. Sorry I can’t be there, I
just wanted to spend the night at home with the family and do something
special for them. But guys you are incredible, thanks for all the
support through everything, loads and loads of love.”
While collecting the audience-voted British Artist Video award, which
went to the group’s hit ‘History’, Liam said that he and his bandmates
will ‘always be’ One Direction.
He said: “This is amazing, thank you so much. I know I speak on
behalf of the rest of the boys when I say we cannot believe we’re still
winning these, and the sheer devotion that our fans have shown online
for this is absolutely amazing, so thank you very much.
“We’ve been taking a bit of time out, working on our solo material,
but One Direction is who we are and it’s who we always will be. This
one’s for you, thank you very much.”
The prize marked One Direction’s seventh BRIT Award, and their fourth year in a row receiving British Artist Video.
