One Direction sealed their Stateside success by scooping three awards at a prestigious American ceremony.

Bessacarr pop star Louis Tomlinson, 20, and his fellow bandmates picked up three gongs at the annual Teen Choice Awards.

The former X Factor contestants walked away with the awards for the Choice Summer Music Star Group gong, the Choice Breakout Group Award and the Choice Love Song Prize for their Billboard Hot 100 hit What Makes You Beautiful.

The boys who are currently in the UK had to accept their award on Sunday night via a video message thanking their fans.
