The One Direction lads are in Australia to sing at a TV awards show this week but the fans are causing such havoc that organisers fear they may bring Sydney to a standstill.
Hoards of screaming fans awaited Harry Styles' and the boys' arrival at the airport but an army of Aussie cops escorted the lads directly to their hotel via the dock.
Disappointed fans are now left hoping for a glimpse of the boys in the buff and have been reduced to spying via binoculars as the lads spend time on a luxury boat. Despite the brisk autumnal breeze, Harry, Niall, Liam, Zayn and Louis stripped off and dived into the water off Chinaman's Beach after enjoying the cruise.
Metro reported that though the band are supposed to be keeping a safe distance from their admirers, Louis Tomlinson
and Liam Payne
snuck out of their hotel last night and were forced to call for help after getting trapped up a high wall while trying to escape the hysteria.
