Finally Harry came out. He was really rushed and was the only one who came out with Paul. He signed a few things, took a few pictures and went inside. It was a shame we didn't get any time to talk to him but it didn't matter. Everyone was still buzzing about seeing them. This was the second time I had seen them and they were all really nice. I'm guessing the next time I'll meet them will be when they're promoting their second album.

Liam was next to come down. He is literally the nicest guy ever. He got up on the bars to get even closer to the fans. He took his time, even though I heard Paul tell them to hurry up. When he got to me he really needed to go in so he had to rush. When he moved along he said "I am in danger of breaking my....somethings." He signed my picture and jumped down. By this time Zayn, Niall, Louis and Liam had all came out to meet fans but there was still no sign of Harry. They all went inside. I started to lose hope he was coming out.

Louis soon came closer. I was on the higher bit so he climbed up. I wanted him to sign my picture but if I slid it through the bars it would have hit is...um...yeah so anyway I didn't get the picture signed but it didn't really matter. He was so nice to everyone, took pictures with fans and even called one of them sexy (you can see that in the video above.)

Next to come down was Niall. He grabbed a few phone numbers and twitter names then signed my picture. By this time I completely forgot that there was mice crawling around. He seemed to be in a good mood, taking pictures and signing everything. One thing I didn't expect him to say was "I got an itchy bum." I filmed everything, which is in the video above.
A girl asked him what his name was. She said it was a joke, but I'm not sure if Niall knew that or not. He jokingly answered "Dave." You can see the video of this below.

A few months ago I heard One Direction will be on Alan Carr again, which is filmed about half an hour away from me. I grabbed my camera and went to the studio. I planned to get there just before the kids got out of school to give myself more of a chance of getting at the front. (Being at the front means basically being next to the bars.) I got there and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. There was still a few spaces. However, I soon realised why no one was standing there. A couple of them starting pointing at my shoes and I was like, what? I felt something on my foot, looked down and it was a mouse! A mouse! I hate mice, it made the wait seem so much longer. I was kinda giving up on seeing them as the recording was about to start and we hadn't seen a glimpse of them.
Then I heard a couple of screams and some of the girls said they just saw Niall through the window. None of the windows have curtains/blinds which made them easier to spot. All the boys (except Harry) walked down a little ramp towards the fans. Zayn was the first one to come over. He was really nice and spent more time with us then I thought he would. He signed my picture, and took lots of pics with fans. I didn't get a picture with him (maybe I will some other time) because I was filming the whole thing. I like filming as I forget things easily, and when I went over the footage, I saw things I didn't see before. Have any of you seen the video of when a girl asks Niall what his name is? Well, I took that. I didn't realise it until 2 months later when I was just looking back over the footage. I posted it on youtube and couldn't believe how many views it got. Directioners are very protective over the boys, so I got a lot of comments sticking up for Niall, which was nice.
The video below is what I took of Zayn.

Last October I met One Direction for the first time. I tried to meet them two weeks beforehand. I waited 4 hours for a wristband but they ran out before I arrived. Wish they told us! Anyway, it was just a normal day and I was just having a look on twitter. A girl on my timeline tweeted "If you live in London get down to the carphone warehouse in Oxford Street, One Direction are gonna be there soon!" I literally ran. I had the day off but most kids were in school so I thought I had a chance. It took me about an hour to get to Oxford Street and I soon saw a few girls outside the carphone warehouse. Only 150 fans would get to meet them so I counted how many people were in front of me. There were about 50! I didn't want to get too excited after the disappointment of last time. I waited two hours and half an hour before they arrived I got a wristband. At the time, they only had two songs out and they just played them on repeat.
Suddenly I heard huge screams. I turned around and could see the top the boys heads in the distance. They were taking a few pictures before the signing. The line was moving along pretty fast and soon it was my turn. When I got to the table, I was shocked at how wide it was. They clearly didn't want us anywhere near them. It was so wide, that I couldn't hear what Harry said to me, so I just smiled and nodded. The rest of the boys didn't say anything and Liam and Louis were talking to each other. The video above shows what happened at the table.

It was the last day Justin Bieber was in London so I thought I would try to see him one last time. I arrived at his hotel at 8a.m. There were about 25 fans waiting and a few of them had waited through the night. It was freezing cold and I was planning to only stay a couple of hours. I ended up waiting 9 hours! It was getting later and later and more and more fans were arriving. As soon as it was 3:30p.m. a lot of girls who had just finished school came. Outside the hotel was packed but as I was at the front, I thought I still might have a chance to meet him. He came out the hotel at 4:30p.m. The screams were crazy. He started walking straight towards me. However, a few selfish fans and fans jumped over the barriers and ran towards him. He turned around and got in his car. I was gutted. They had waited about half an hour and ruined it for a bunch of us who had waited 9 hours+ His car drove past me and everyone ran in the street following it. Most of them seemed to be unaware that it was a main road with other cars on. I just stayed on the side of the road watching them bang on the windows and one girl even sat on the car!
