Extra Metropolitan police have been drafted in to deal with the crowds of young girls, who have been holding banners, waving and shrieking with excitement at the prospect of seeing - or even meeting - their redheaded American heartthrob.

"I've loved him since the beginning, even before 'Super Size Me'," one fan told HuffPost UK Comedy. "I followed his progress as a young playwright in New York."

"He's my favourite, he’s just so cool," gushed her friend. "Documentaries, TV shows, web series... We just love him. We're the most dedicated fans in the world!"

'This Is Us' premieres in Leicester Square on Tuesday night. It follows the story of a little-known boyband from England called One Direction.
