One Direction has bid farewell to their fans in a series of heartfelt tweets the day after the boys performed together for the last time before a planned 2016 hiatus.

The group performed a medley of new songs on The X Factor UK on Sunday night, and bowed out as a group on Monday.

Taking to Twitter to wish fans a happy Christmas, Niall Horan wrote, "5 of the best years of our lives so far... Thank you all so much for your incredible support. I hope you guys realise what you've done for us.

"Can't thank you enough to be honest... Don't worry, we'll be back... Looking forward to chilling for a while now."

You are the greatest team mates we have ever known. Thank you."
