And so they’re gone. One Direction bid a sad farewell to their fans with a stunning set of performances at the X Factor final.

The gorgeous boys belted out a pair of  tunes from their Made In The AM album, Infinity and the kooky track History, while images of the boys were flashed up behind them, reminding us of their triumphant journey toward global success.

The boys ended their set with a tender group hug before Simon Cowell and host of celebs paid tribute to them.

Thank you for the music, boys! Don’t stay away for too long, y’hear….
