One Direction weren’t the only people thrilled they won Best British Video at the 2015 BRIT Awards on Wednesday night.

The band which consists of Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik scooped a massive prize voted for by fans.

To show their appreciation, the UK X Factor 2010 contestants tweeted: “You guys are INCREDIBLE. You just won the guys the @BRITAwards BRITISH VIDEO 2015. Give yourselves a huge pat on the back :)”

Votes were able to be recorded via tweets so fans really did play a huge part in winning the prize.

However fans across the UAE could stop talking about it on Twitter on Thursday morning as the term “#ONEDIRECTIONBRIT” was trending in Dubai.
The group’s official account on the microblogging site added a tweet praising director Ben Winston. They posted: “A BIG thanks to the director of the #YouAndI video @benwinston #BRITs2015 #BritishVideo”
Zayn wrote on his personal Twitter account: “Woohoo.... :D can't thank you enough ! You amazing people ... Love ya's”

Meanwhile Louis added: “Thank youuuuuu to everybody who voted for us at The Brits :)”

At the same time he made those in the United Arab Emirates aware they can bid on attending their April 4 gig in Dubai as part of the On The Road Again tour. He posted: “Auction for Dubai tickets !! Great seats with M & G in aid of @EdenDoraTrust happening now :)”

One Direction also have a pop-up shop in the Dubai Mall until February 28.
