One Direction do not agree with Beatles comparison

One Direction told ITV News that although being compared to The Beatles was "very flattering" it was "not necessarily something we agree with".

The hysteria surrounding Harry, Niall, Zayn, Louis and Liam was compared to Beatlemania in the 1960s by This Is Us director Morgan Spurlock.

However, the boys dismissed the claims, saying the Liverpudlian foursome were "in a league of their own" and "much cooler than us".
