Get Me Out Of Here! at the start of this month.The band were united in their celebrations after Harry's bandmates stormed the stage and hugged him excitedly as the result of the show was announced.

They jumped on top of him, as host Bruce Forsyth looked on in panic. The veteran broadcaster mistook them for troublemakers, telling them: "Get off the stage! Get off!"

Harry's overjoyed dad Christopher also joined the scrum.


Later, some of the 13 million who had been watching at home took to Twitter as proclaimed Sir Bruce's attempts to shoo the band off stage "the best TV moment of 2011".

Harry, who turns 26 on Friday, said: "First the boys came on and then my dad glided on the stage too. i was like, 'dad, what are you doing?"The band are set to tour the UK in 2012, starting in March, and their popularity can be in no doubt after four additional shows were added to the Up Close And Personal tour on Friday.Tickets for the extra dates, in York, Birmingham, London and Manchester, will go on sale on Wednesday.
