One Direction, the world’s biggest boyband - featuring South Yorkshire’s own Doncaster star Louis Tomlinson - have cancelled their Belfast gig tonight at the last minute.

Band member Liam Payne fell ill, leaving him unable to perform.

Fans had packed into the arena to see One Direction but were left disappointed.

A statement from the band’s management said: “The show tonight has been cancelled as Liam has been taken ill, and whilst not serious, he is unable to perform tonight.

“Please hold on to your tickets. A further statement will be made in the morning. The band apologise to fans and wish Liam better.”
