Not long after The X Factor ended in 2010, Tomlinson faced criticism from first X Factor Winner Steve Brookstein in which Brookstein claimed Tomlinson wasn't a very good singer and couldn't believe he'd made it to the finals. However, Tomlinson received a lot of support from a number of celebrities and fans on twitter, with many claiming that Brookstein was just bitter and jealous due to failing to gain much success following his win in 2004.
Is known as "The Leader" but as Harry Styles stated "it was the only one left!" Styles is known as "The Flirt", Malik "The Vain One", Payne "The Smart One" and Horan "The Funny One".
One Direction were formed at the bootcamp stage of The X Factor: Celebrity (2004) in 2010 when the judges felt Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik and Harry Styles were too good to throw away, but not interesting enough to make it as soloists.
