One Direction have won Best Video at The Brit Awards - but only two of the band members were there.

Annie Lennox paid tribute to the "legendary" David Bowie as he was posthumously named Brit Icon at this year's awards.
She told the audience: "The legacy of his extraordinary sound and vision will be loved and revered for as long as the earth still spins."
Actor Gary Oldman accepted the award on Bowie's behalf.
Remembering his friend, he said: "I can assure you that David faced his illness with enormous courage, with dignity and grace and customary humour.
"Even in dire circumstances, when he wrote to tell me the bad news that he had cancer, he added "the good news is, I've got my cheek bones back."
Bowie got a standing ovation as Oldman continued: "He was the sweetest soul ever, with the best cheek bones until it was done.
"David, you were mortal, but your potential was superhuman and your remarkable music is living on. We love you and we thank you."
Singer Lorde, who Bowie once said was the "future of music", then paid tribute with her own version of Life On Mars?
