Following their stateside success it comes as no surprise that One Direction picked up three gongs last night at the Teen Choice Awards.
The former X Factor contestants walked away with the awards for Choice Breakout Group and Choice Love Song for their Billboard Hot 100 hit What Makes You Beautiful.
Unfortunately for their US fans the boys are back in the UK and had to accept their award via a video message but they made sure to keep fans happy with an amusing message.
