Grieving Doncaster pop star Louis Tomlinson bravely posed for pictures with fans on a night out at Doncaster area pub.
The singer, whose debut solo single Just Hold On went straight into the charts at number two yesterday, was pictured at Pangea in Bawtry on Saturday night.
The star is back home spending time with his family following the tragic death of his mother Johannah earlier this month.
The 24-year-old showed that no matter what he always has time for his fans and he posed up for pictures with a lucky few.
Looking relaxed Louis wore a white T-shirt and black jacket, while he carried a bottle of Corona beer in this hand.
In another picture he posed with a female fan, who looked ecstatic to be in his company.
He also found time to show off his famous sense of humour when he tweeted about Liam Payne’s choice of jewellery.
His One Direction bandmate was seen at a recording studio in LA wearing a large gold chain around his neck.
Clearly finding it rather amusing, Louis tweeted: “Liam Chain ”
It comes less than two weeks after his mum Johannah Deakin died following a battle with leukaemia.
The singer fulfilled his mother’s dying wish by performing his debut solo single Just Hold On just three days after her death on the X Factor.
The song, with DJ Steve Aoki, is in the running to be Christmas number one later this week.
