It's been 10 years since One Direction came together on The X Factor and fans aren't the only ones getting emotional over the special anniversary.

The band, which was created after all the boys failed to make it to the next round of competition during the bootcamp stage, only came in third in the competition. However, little did they know that they would turn into a global phenomenon soon after. While it's been over four year since the band went on hiatus, the different band members took the time to share special messages with the fans.

Here's what the guys of One Direction had to say for their 10th anniversary.

Harry Styles

"I’ve been struggling to put into words how grateful I am for everything that’s happened over the last ten years. I’ve seen things and places that I’d only ever dreamt of when I was growing up," he wrote on Twitter. "I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and working with some of the most incredible people, and gained friendships that I know I will treasure for the rest of my life. None of this would be possible without the support you’ve given along the way."

"And for that, I will be forever thankful. I just can’t believe it’s been ten years. Thank you to our crew, our team, and everyone else who helped us along the way. To all the fans, I love you, and I thank you with all my heart. You did it all, and you changed everything," he continued. "And finally.. to the boys, I love you so much, and I couldn’t be prouder of everything we achieved together. Here’s to ten. H"

Liam Payne

"What a journey… I had no idea what we were in for when I sent this text to my Dad ten years ago at this exact time the band was formed," Liam posted on Twitter, along with a screenshot of the special text he sent. "Thanks to everyone that’s supported us over the years and thanks to the boys for sharing this with me #10YearsOfOneDirection"

Niall Horan

"When I met these four gents there was no way I thought we would go on to do what we did. So many unbelievable memories we shared together. We felt the adoration of millions from around the planet on a daily basis and it was mind blowing," he wrote on Twitter.

"It’s such a major part of our lives and always will be. Cheers to US today boys and thank you to all you beautiful people who have supported us over the last 10 years," he continued and tagged all the boys in the group. "It’s the 150 person crew of carpenters, lighting, riggers, sound, stage manager Mill that flew the globe with us. it’s our band, our security boys, tour managers, our managers, our label, Sarah cooking our food for us on the road. Today is a day to celebrate those guys also."

Louis Tomlinson

"Feeling pretty emotional today. 10 years!! Spent the morning watching old interviews and performances. Just wanted to send a massive thank you to ALL of my band mates. What we did together was incredible," Louis posted on Twitter. "Too many incredible memories to mention but not a day goes by that I don't think about how amazing it was. @NiallOfficial @Harry_Styles @LiamPayne @zaynmalik. So proud of you all individually."

"And to the fans. The people who gave us all these amazing opportunities. You are incredible, your unmatched level of loyality [sp] is something that makes me really really proud. Miss it every day!"
