One Direction have become one of the biggest boy bands in the world, so it's hardly surprising that the lads have changed a little since first finding fame two years ago.

The 'What Makes You Beautiful' hitmakers first came to the public's attention in 2010 when they appeared on The X Factor as shy teenagers. Fast-forward two years, two number one albums, hit singles and success that is rivalling The Beatles, Liam, Zayn, Louis, Harry and Niall admit they have become different people.

Do you think the 1D lads have changed much?
