One Direction tour

One Direction have been touring the US for well over a month now, and they've quickly discovered that their American fans been a fair bit more crazy than us Brits!

Despite One Direction mania seeing thousands of young fans camping out for nearly a week for tickets to their arena tour last month, it's apparently even worse on the other side of the Atlantic, where the some fans were injured in a recent stampede to meet the boys at a signing.

Speaking in his weekly video diary, One Direction star Liam Payne reveals that UK fans are very shy by comparison!

“We always say that the fans in America are a lot more confident than the ones in the UK," he said. "The fans in the UK are quite shy, whereas the fans in America just come right up to you and ask for pictures.”

But unsurprisingly Liam and his teenage band mates are loving every minute, with the singer revealing how one eager fan threw a bra on stage: "The bra on stage, it was massive. I could’ve got my head in there if I wanted to.”
