Exactly 12 years ago, One Direction was created by X Factor judges Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger.

And to celebrate, the former ITV show has shared an unseen video showing how the jury came to the decision to include five solo singers in the group.

In the clip, which was posted on Twitter on Saturday, the judges looked at several shots of the pop star’s wannabes and decided to form two groups, a boy band and a girl band, from the contenders.
