Liam, Niall and Harry all reportedly came to the show to be with their friend during the tough time.

Several of the 1D boys have publicly commented on the sad news, and were said to be close to Johannah, who died on Wednesday.

While on the X Factor set, Olympian Sam Quek got a selfie with Harry Styles and posted it on social media with the caption ''So... no biggy or anything but this just happened''.

Some people defended Sam, adding that it is his choice to say yes to the photo.

Sam has not commented on any of the criticism at this point.
