Liberty842’s Sam hosted the Twitter party via @chattyman on the night. The highlight – and the peak on Twitter – was Alan dressing up as Harry Styles! From our management of the @chattyman account, we’ve seen all those One Direction fans stick with the show with many still calling for Alan to take over as the band’s manager!

Alan tweeted a photo of him as Harry which was retweeted over 41,000 times, and Harry Styles’ enthusiastic response – “@AlanCarr Hahaha!! I love it… Happy New Year!” – was retweeted over 40,000 times.
