Instagram celebrated its 5th birthday yesterday – and it did so by letting us in on a very interesting secret.
To celebrate their special anniversary, the social media site revealed exactly who owns the most followed accounts in the UK.
But unfortunately, there was something a little unsavoury about the list. These pages all belong to men.
It’s no surprise that the One Direction lads dominate the top spots. Harry Styles is the most popular, with a mighty impressive 13m followers.
He’s followed by David Beckham, who’s just a teeny bit behind at 12.9m. Considering Becks only created his account in May, we reckon he could soon catch Hazza up.
Next is Niall Horan with 11.7, then it’s footballer Gareth Bale with 9.7m. Liam Payne rounds off the top 5 after picking up a not-so-shabby 7m fans.
We’re feeling a teeny bit sorry for 1D’s Louis Tomlinson, who’s trailing behind his bandmates with 6.1m.
But not as much as we’re feeling sorry for every single British woman who failed to make the list.
Let’s start giving our fellow ladies some love, yeah?!
On a global scale, it’s a very different story. In fact, every single one of the site’s overall most-followed accounts belong to women. Oh yes.

After that comes Selena Gomez with 46m and Ariana Grande with 44.7m.
They’re all making our 168 look a bit feeble really, aren’t they?
