And then the boys themselves decided to mark the milestone.

We have been a band for five years. And it is impossible to thank anyone enough for all the support they have given us over this time..

To you who support us, in any way, thank you. We wouldn't be here without you. You did this and we thank you for having us. All the love

5 years , literally sittin down talking about last night. Insane! I remember the day we were out together like it was yesterday!

Every single day we are thankful for the platform that you incredible people gave us . What an amazing 5 years it's been !!


But then something amazing happened when Liam tweeted his gratitude – and included former bandmate Zayn Malik when he thanked the boys.

Wowwwww 5 years 5 boys what an amazing journey I couldn't thank you all ever enough and thank you Louis Niall Harry and zayn for everything

Not only did Zayn retweet both of Liam's messages.

Thanks for all the memories boys I love you all

But he then made this lovely exchange with him.
