What do you think should be named in honour of Louis Tomlinson?

The singer, who shot to fame on The X Factor, is at the centre of a push by chiefs from the hit show to honour One Direction in their hometowns across the UK.

A spokesman for the show's spin-off, The Xtra Factor, said: "We are running a campaign at the moment called the #1Dplea.

"Due to One Direction's hiatus, the show has decided we need a more permanent reminder of the boys and are looking to create tributes to them up and down the UK, whether it's a roundabout in Wolverhampton being named after Liam or a chip shop in Doncaster named after Louis.
