One fan spoke to Sky News about her hopes of catching a close-up view of the singers: “With our numbers that we got they said that the first 200 would probably be right at the front of the barriers so hopefully we get to meet a few of them and get an autograph, maybe a photo,” said 22-year-old Rohays Vonmrtzinger.
Meanwhile 1D have been busy as ever counting down to the big event on Twitter.
Harry wrote: “Are you excited about the movie? Long day of interviews for the film.. Got me excited for tomorrow.” While Liam added: “Amazinggggg day today! Can’t wait to see all of you later in Leicester Square!!”
