One Direction World Record Breakers

One Direction have set a new world record after their first three albums debuted at number one in the US.

The band's success in the US means they have earned a spot in the Guinness World Records 2015 book.

They are the only UK group in US chart history to top the chart with their first three releases, and made the announcement to their fans on stage at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey last month.

Niall Horan said: "This really is one of our proudest moments, both for us and our incredible fans. Whenever we talk about it we always say how cool it is that we did it first, how sick is that?!"

The X Factor group first topped the US chart in 2012 with their debut album Up All Night, and scored their second number one later in the year with follow-up Take Me Home.

Their latest album, Midnight Memories, topped the Billboard 200 last December, and went on to sell over one million copies in five weeks.

The Guinness World Records 2015 book will be released next Thursday (September 11).
