VIDEO: One Direction's Louis calls Irish presenter "a little shit" during awful interview

The tension is palpable.

One Direction are busy playing and pulling out of gigs in Belfast this week and the local media have managed to get some time with the boys.

BBC presenter Stephen Nolan got a one-on-one interview with Louis Tomlinson and it escalated into one of the more awkward clips you'll see this week.

Nolan asked Louis about their new single, Louis asked Nolan if he'd heard it, Nolan said "No" and then it got weird, watch the clip here.

We'd love to see what happened before the camera started rolling because there's clearly tension between the two from the off.

#TeamNolan and #TeamLouis will be trending soon.
