Niall Horan and Harry Styles have been caught on camera sobbing in old The X Factor footage.

In celebration of One Direction turning 13 years old since the day they were formed by Simon Cowell, ITV have unveiled a never before seen clip of the band, before their lives changed forever.

Harry, Niall, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, and Zayn Malik rose to fame on the 2010 series of The X Factor.

Despite coming in third place behind winner Matt Cardle and runner-up Rebecca Ferguson, they went on to become one of the biggest boybands in the world.

In 2015, our hearts broke when Zayn announced he was leaving the band, and as if things couldn’t get any worse, One Direction fans’ worlds shattered when the remaining four members called it quits just months later.

Since then, they’ve gone on to carve out successful music careers, filled stadiums, had children, and sold millions of records individually.

And while we’re all still begging for a reunion, for now, we’ll have to settle for a throwback video.

In it, host Dermot O’Leary can be heard asking: ‘Are you ready for your lives to change?’

A teary Harry replies: ‘I think we are all ready for it. And we’re ready for leaving what we’ve known as our lives to do what we all want to do.’

While Zayn nodded along, Harry could barely be heard over Niall’s sobs.

In the 30-minute footage, ITV has also dropped their second performance in front of Simon and Sinitta, who gushes over how they’ll be the next ‘Justin Bieber’.

After their iconic rendition of Natalie Imbruglia’s Torn, which they went on to sing for live shows, One Direction also covered Kelly Clarkson’s My Life would Suck Without You.

Their performances sent them through to the live shows, with Niall telling Simon: ‘We’ll work really, really, really hard.’

Liam later tells Dermot how ‘elated’ he is to finally be through, having previously auditioned for the show in 2008.

The footage elsewhere also sees Dermot chatting to Simon as he explains his decision.

He says: ‘I wanted to prove to people that if you know what you’re doing, and you find talented girls and talented guys, you don’t have to overthink the process. Most people do it wrong.’

He adds: ‘I just saw five guys looking devastated who I thought, you know what, I’m just going to take a shot here.’
