One Direction posed for a group selfie following a concert last night – and promptly sent their fans into meltdown!

Liam Payne uploaded a black and white picture to Twitter on Wednesday (30 April) showing himself striking a pose alongside Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik and members of their band.

Just another picture, right?!

Not really. This picture had more than 100,000 retweets and favourites in mere hours and, judging from the comments, caused serious excitement among those loyal Directioners.

"IS THIS EVEN REAL?!" wrote one, while another tweeted: "I AM SCREAMING!" Other responses we couldn't really decipher but we gather everyone was very excited!

Not that we blame them. Five hot guys in one picture? What's not to love. And the fact the group don't often tweet group pictures of themselves that haven't been taken at an official event.

Liam's selfie of the group was taken in Santiago, Chile, during the latest stop on their mammoth world 'Where We Are Tour'.

Liam tweeted this photo of himself and 1D personal trainer Mark Jarvis trekking Machu Picchu in Peru during a tour break.

The tour kicked off in Colombia last week and will visit several more South American countries before arriving in Ireland and the UK from 23 May.

Meanwhile, in other One Direction news, just as fans were getting over their excitement at Liam launching his very first Instagram... he's gone and lost access to it.

Liam tweeted a public message to Instagram on 29 April, saying: "Instagram if u can please unlock my account as I've sent you my passport and I am me and I'd like to use it thank you. Much appreciated."

His tweet came after Liam pleaded politely with fans to stop trying to guess his Instagram password as the email notifications were driving him mad. Oops.
