Following the scenes of jubilation from here to Timbuktu after Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles crushed all that \'bitter feud\' nonsense with a heart-stopping onstage embrace, we\'ve decided the time is ripe to take a look back at the best one-on-one hugs in the history of One Direction.
1. There\'s the time Liam gently pulled Zayn into an affectionate embrace:
2. And the time he hugged Harry from behind, placing a hand over his beating heart:

3. There\'s the iconic time Louis refused to let a squirming Harry out of his grasp:
4. With Zayn feeling much the same way about Liam:
5. There\'s this koala hug which could melt even the coldest of hearts:
6. And this spontaneous kiss between Zarry in the \'Kiss You\' video:
7. Obviously, this list wouldn\'t be anything without the historic hair sniff:
8. Then there\'s the time this double hug happened (with poor Zayn left partnerless:)
9. But he\'s still had plenty of love and affection from Louis:
10. There\'s this ecstatic football related Narry embrace:
13. And the time Louis wanted Liam to put down his PSP and give him some attention:
14. There\'s the time Liam was overcome with a surge of emotion for Niall:

17. There\'s Louis\' bro-ish half armed hugs:
19. There\'s the time Harry couldn\'t stop himself from reaching out and caressing Liam\'s ear:
20. And the time he spun around and landed safely in Niall\'s arms:
22. There\'s the time Liam sniffed Zayn\'s arm mid-hug:
22. And the time Harry buried his nose in Louis\' neck on live TV:
23. There\'s the time Harry snuggled into Niall\'s shoulder:
24. And the time he lifted Louis into his arms seconds after One Direction was born:
25. There\'s the time Niall leaned down and gave Harry the warmest hug we\'ve ever seen:
26. And the time Zayn and Liam basically invented their own personally choreographed squeeze:
28. And the time Liam reached out and patted Louis\' well formed jaw:
