One Direction have announced the first date of a UK book signing tour.

The X Factor boyband will be signing copies of their biography 'Forever Young' at the Union Street branch of WH Smiths in Birmingham on Thursday Feb 17th.

Posting a message on Facebook, the boys said: "One Direction will be signing copies of their new book, ‘One Direction, Forever Young’. This is strictly a ticketed event with limited availability."

Tickets will be available at the store from 4.30pm on Monday 14th February. Those without a ticket will not be admitted into the signing area unless they are a parent or guardian of a person under the age of 16.

The signing is due to take place at 7 - 10pm.

We have no official word but expect more signings to be announced shortly.
