We still miss these days :(

While all the lads posted messages, Liam was the only singer to namecheck his bandmates past and present, writing:

Zayn, who departed the group earlier this year retweeted Liam’s message, and then quickly sent a reply.

He wrote:

Naturally, Directioners were beside themselves with delight at Zayn’s kind words, and rushed to tweet the stars:

Who knew one small tweet could mean so much, eh?

Zayn’s been having a bit of a tough time recently, and it was recently revealed that his solo material won’t be released on Simon Cowell’s label Syco. Instead, it’s believed that another Sony-owned label will pick him up.

He also recently hit headlines after a Twitter spat with producer Naughty Boy.

The former BFFs fell out over a leaked video, which featured Zayn with rap duo Krept & Konan.
