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.”
The singer’s mother passed away in December last year, so no doubt the band’s win will have been doubly emotional.
At the awards ceremony, which took place last night at the O2 arena in London, it was left to fellow 1D star Liam Payne to collect the award in person.
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.
Meanwhile Liam’s other half, Cheryl, has unveiled her baby bump for the first time in a stunning new campaign.
The singer, 33, posed for the shoot when she was eight months’ pregnant and is just days away from giving birth with her and One Direction star Liam Payne’s first child.
It is the first time she has shown her bump in an official capacity after choosing not to publicly confirm her pregnancy.
A source said: “Cheryl is confident, proud and very ready to become a mum.”
The shoot – filmed in January – is part of a re-branding exercise for beauty brand L’Oreal, who have teamed up with the Prince’s Trust for a new drive focused on confidence.
