Louis Tomlinson performed his debut solo single on The X Factor as a tribute to his late mother.

One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson appeared on The X Factor UK last night to premiere his debut solo single, 'Just Hold On' - with DJ Steve Aoki - as a tribute to his Mum Johannah who passed away on Wednesday after being diagnosed with a very aggressive form of leukaemia earlier this year.

Tomlinson’s bandmates, Harry Styles, Niall Horan, and Liam Payne all reunited for the first time in a year to support Louis backstage in his dressing room at Wembley Arena - with Niall flying in overnight from New York and Liam coming from Los Angeles.

Zayn has also tweeted in support of Louis:
