One Direction have released the latest behind the scenes clip from their new music video and it’s fair to say that this is probably the band’s most daring film yet.

In the video Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan can be seen singing, waving their hands about and doing a bit of shimmying at the top of Tower bridge and while you might have thought the whole thing was down to a bit of clever CGI….you’d be wrong.

It turns out the X Factor stars really were harnessed to the edge of the iconic London landmark, above the River Thames, looking down on the freezing cold water below.

Rather them than us.

Some of the stars appeared to enjoy it more than others.

Liam was a little awestruck as he prepared to shoot the special scenes and he told the team:

“I look at this bridge every day out my window and now I’m going to get and stand on that and do something that no one else really gets to do.”

He added:

“It’s going to be pretty cool. I can’t wait. I’m really excited.”

Louis Tomlinson seemed to be taking it all in his stride. That or he’s a magnificent faker and he added:

“We have always been a band about doing out own stunts and obviously we’re showing that today.”

Harry Styles was loving being a man of action for a change and as he got strapped into his braces and harnesses he laughed:

“I feel like Lara Croft Tomb Raider.”

However Niall Horan was slightly more nervous, and confessed he was a little worried about the heights and the water…He revealed:

“I’m ok with heights but heights over water…. I don’t know about this but we’ll see what it’s like.”

Poor old Nialler is known as the nervous and edgy one in the band, though he did deny rumours of panic attacks, claustrophobia and self help books earlier this week.

Luckily, it all turned out ok in the end.

Look at our little dare devils in action and leave your comments below…
