Louis Tomlinson has apologised to fans after discovering his Twitter account had been hacked.

A tweet was sent out from the One Direction star's account yesterday (20.11.13) to more than 14 million followers which read: ''F*** you B***hes.''

But it wasn't long before the 21-year-old realised he'd been a victim of online hacking and deleted the post.

He then wrote: ''Got woke up to find out I got hacked ! Working on re-following people now sorryyyyy :( Big loveeee!!''

The hunk isn't the first of the One Direction lads to fall foul of hackers.

Back in July band mate Niall Horan, 20, was alerted to a breach in his account by his loyal fans, who trended the hashtag #NIALLCHANGEYOURPASSWORD in a bid to get his attention.

And the band's hacking problems haven't only been on Twitter recently - after their new album 'Midnight Memories' was leaked on the internet before its official release.

Liam Payne said: ''It's annoying because there's this big build-up and it affects sales.

''We really want a number one, so we're just kind of hoping for the best now. Hopefully people go out and buy it.''

He added: ''It's just frustrating when you work so hard on an album and you kind of want everyone to hear it at the same time.''
