One Direction

We love 1D on Fun Kids – the UK’s children’s radio station!


One Direction (a.k.a. 1D) are a five-piece boy band from the UK & Ireland!

Starring Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, and Louis Tomlinson, the boys formed back in 2010 when the members individually auditioned for The X Factor!

As solo candidates they failed to qualify, but Nicole Sherzinger (a guest judge at the time) suggested the five be put together – what a genius!

The boys went onto the live shows and finished third, behind Rebecca Ferguson and winner Matt Cardle. After that they were quickly signed by Simon Cowell’s label Syco Music and within a year their debut single What Makes You Beautiful was number one in the UK Singles Chart!

From then on it’s just been onwards and upwards for the boys and they’re now the biggest act in the world and possibly of all-time!

We’re always playing the latest tunes from 1D on Fun Kids!
