Happy birthday, Louis Tomlinson!! As Louis, one fifth of the hugely successful boyband One Direction, celebrates turning 23, HELLO! Online takes a look at what the stars have in store for Louis and you… This is what Louis, who is a Capricorn, can be expecting today: What does Santa get for Christmas? A lot of people traditionally leave out mince pies and port; are they just giving him a risk of indigestion and a king-sized hangover? Perhaps that's why we never hear from him during the rest of the year. It probably takes him that long to sleep it all off. And in so far as your own life lately, has been one long round of giving when we stop to think about all the allowances you have been asked to make, what does that say about what you can expect? Actually, plenty. All of it good.

Louis Tomlinson's career began on the small screen, as an extra in Fat Friends and Waterloo Road. As a secondary school student in Doncaster, Louis took the lead role in the school production of Grease, and it was here that he made the decision to audition for The X Factor - a decision that would change his life.

In 2010, Louis joined hundreds of thousands of hopefuls at The X Factor auditions. At bootcamp Louis failed to make it through to judge's houses, but Nicole Scherzinger, one of the judges on the hit ITV show that year, decided to team Louis up with four other failed singers to create a new boyband - and the new group, One Direction, qualified for the groups category.

The band came third in the series, but have without a doubt gone on to become the most successful act from The X Factor in its 14-year history. Their four albums have all broken records and topped the charts around the globe, and Louis is responsible for helping write many of the band's best songs - including Story Of My Life and Fireproof.

The band are incredibly close, but in May 2014 Louis's bandmate Liam Payne had to apologise to their fans after Louis and Zayn Malik were caught on camera joking about marijuana while smoking a rolled up cigarette. Louis also shares an apartment with his other band mate, Harry Styles.

A huge football fan, Louis has played for the reserve teams, and in June 2014 the 23-year-old completed a takeover of Doncaster Football Club.
