Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles talked about some near-misses and some unfortunate encounters while performing at concerts in a new TV interview.
Explaining how some of their fans try to attract their attention on stage, Louis told Alison Hammond on ITV's This Morning: "There are a lot of things that get thrown, but more often than not there are a lot of iPhones thrown! And you can just imagine these kids' parents when they get home asking 'Where's your iPhone?' and they reply 'Oh I threw it on stage at the people I'm here to support'..."
Niall added: "Yeah... 'I love you, but here's a phone to the head'."
That must have hurt, boys...
In fact, Liam recalled another standout moment: "Do you remember that time when I got hit with a Terry's Chocolate Orange?... and coins, they hurt."
But, trying to see the funny side, Harry quipped: "It wasn't that bad, I made £1.70 in the last show!"
Liam did, however, suggest this to fans: "I think it's to try and get our attention sometimes - but there's better ways to do it than to throw things at us I think. A funky sign - you've got to love a good sign!"
One Direction are currently promoting their brand new album, Made in the A.M. It's their last album before their extended hiatus.
