One Direction make chart history in US after debut album Up All Night goes straight to No 1
One Direction are celebrating after hitting the top spot in the US Billboard 200 chart with their album Up All Night.
The boys have become the first ever British group to go straight to No 1 in America with their debut album.
'Congratulations to One Direction for coming in at #1 on the U.S. @billboard charts. Thank you to all who've been there from day one. 1DHQ X,' reads a message on the band's official Twitter page.
The band finished supporting Big Time Rush on their Stateside tour earlier this month and have since stayed in the country to promote their record.
'We simply cannot believe that we are No 1 in America!' says Harry in a statement.
'It's beyond a dream come true for us.
'We want to thank each and every one of our fans in the US who bought our album and we would also like to thank the American public for being so supportive of us.'NEW PICTURES Caroline Flack joins stars at National TV Awards 2012>>
