Following the release of One Direction's This Is Us, Louis Tomlinson's grandad booked out two entire cinema screens for his family and friends.

Tomlinson's granddad attended the screening in the cinema where Louis used to work and he pre-booked two of the venue's screens to accomodate his group.

The manager at the cinema, Vue Doncaster, said: "Louis's granddad was clearly very proud of Louis's achievements and was extremely keen to watch the film amongst friends and family...

"He didn't want Louis to know that he was planning this visit as he knew his grandson would have wanted to pay for the tickets.

"He was even so kind as to buy the cinema staff 'thank you' chocolates for placing the booking and helping to make the night such an enjoyable experience."

Tomlinson attended the film's world premiere in London on Tuesday along with his bandmates Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik and our own Niall Horan.
