SOUTH Yorkshire’s latest pop sensation Louis Tomlinson got a homecoming welcome from 10,000 screaming fans - as his X Factor boyband One Direction played Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena, writes Graham Walker.

The fab five - Louis, Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik and Liam Payne - got possibly the biggest cheer of the night on the first of two dates on the X Factor Live Tour.

Joining them, and back again Wednesday night, with limited tickets still available, are TV reality show winner Matt Cardle, runner-up Rebecca Ferguson, Paige Richardson, Mary Byrne, Cher Lloyd, Aiden Grimshaw and Wagner.
