BOY band sensation Louis Tomlinson has made music history in America with his One Direction mates.

The Bessacarr lad has reached the number one spot in the United States for the second time with the band’s new album - the first time a British band have debuted at the top of the US charts with their first two albums.

Latest album Take Me Home, which is currently number one in Britain and 30 other countries around the globe, sold 540,000 in its first week to claim top spot, matching the group’s debut Up All Night which also hit number one in America - a feat not even The Beatles achieved.
