1D's Liam and Louis reveal there used to be tension in the band

One Direction’s Secret Boy Beef Is Exposed

One Direction may seem like the best of pals now, but Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne have revealed that at one point there were nearly physical fights breaking out as the boys struggled to get on. Who knew?

In a newly-released clip from 1D’s This Is Us DVD, the pair confess that back in the X Factor days, things weren’t so rosy between the now-BFFs.

‘We used to be at each other’s throats on the X Factor‘, Louis explained. ‘Whenever I wanted to do anything slightly mischievious, he was always the daddy.’

‘Me and Louis did not get on at all,’ Liam agreed. ‘We were two completely different characters. There was one point where I literally wanted to whack him.’ Oof!

Thankfully, no punches were thrown and the bromantic twosome are now more loved-up than ever, which makes us happy. In fact, the boys may just be the most smitten band we’ve ever known…

Fellow lady-loving lotharios Harry Styles and Niall Horan have NEVER fallen out over a girl (from what we’ve seen, anyway), and husband-to-be Zayn Malik is so hooked on his bezzies that he’s asked them to be ushers at his wedding to Little Mix‘s Perrie Edwards.

Oh you cuties! Check out the boys’ candid confessional below.
