‘@NiallOfficial @Louis_Tomlinson @Harry_Styles can you believe this after so long?!!! Thank you so much you guys are unbelievable,’ tweeted Liam on Tuesday after the hashtag #OneDirectionBestFans started trending.
But the decision to exclude Zayn – who quit the band in 2015 – infuriated some fans who sent their anger Liam’s way.
It’s not “ONE DIRECTION ” without Zayn , it’s only Liam Louis Harry and Niall,’ tweeted one irate fan while another simply said: ‘By the way, you should mention @zaynmalik as well. Also he was part of the band. Remember.??’

Zayn made the decision to leave the band after five years in 2015, admitting that the other four lads were ‘cool’ about his decision.
‘They’ve been cool about it. And they understand that, you know, it’s not real to me anymore,’ he said at the time.
‘They still want to do it for a while so they’re going to carry on doing what they want to do and I think they are going to do OK for a while.’
