Louis Tomlinson and Eleanor Calder have been together for 7 months

One Direction have left the UK to begin their tour of America.

Louis Tomlinson, 20, Zayn Malik, 19, plus Harry Styles, Niall Horan and Liam Payne, all 18, will be away from friends and family until their gigs finish at the end of June.

'Connecticut my town ! :) x,' Zayn Tweeted this morning after arriving in the region for 1D's first concert.    

Leaving the UK looked especially hard for Louis, who was snapped hugging and kissing girlfriend Eleanor Calder, 19, as they said an emotional farewell at Heathrow.

Liam's dancer girlfriend Danielle decided against waving her boy off at the airport.

'I always get upset saying goodbye so we say our goodbyes at home before he leaves xx,' Tweeted Danielle, 23.
