Exactly 12 years ago, One Direction was created by X Factor judges Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger.
To mark the occasion, the former ITV show shared an unseen video clip of how the committee came to the decision to put five solo singers into a group.
In the clip, which was posted on Twitter on Saturday, the judges were checking several shots of wannabe pop stars, and decided to create two groups, a boy and girl band, of hopefuls.

He grabs a picture of Niall Horan and says, “He should be on set. I’m not saying we’re going to do that, but I’d like to imagine him.”
“Let’s do a fantasy boy band instead of just saying no,” replies Nicole, 44.
Placing a picture of Niall on the desk, they start looking at other pictures before they come across Harry Styles.

We loved it, says Lewis.
