1D's Louis & Girlfriend Hit The Orient Express!

Popstar enjoyed a double date with his mum and soon-to-be stepdad...

One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson and girlfriend Eleanor Calder enjoyed a day out on the Orient Express yesterday (April 24) - with their visit trending on Twitter!

The Kiss You singer was joined by his mum Johannah and her fiancé Dan Deakin for tea on board the swanky British Pullman train - and MTV News UK got the low down on their trip.


We spoke to the Orient Express press team who told us that the double daters travelled on the Venice Simplon Orient Express sister train - which is the brand’s art deco vintage day train that departs from London Victoria on non-stop round trip to Surrey.

The exclusive trip usually includes a champagne reception and a four-course lunch, but on this occasion, it was arranged by Louis’ favourite brew – Yorkshire Tea - who treated the party to a very English tea, that included scones and macaroons.

Tomlinson's gorgeous girlfriend later posted a pic of herself cosying up to the 1D hunk in an armchair, sat opposite Louis’ mother and soon to be stepfather, with the caption: "Thankyou @YorkshireTea for having us on the Orient Express today!"

Louis and Eleanor were introduced by a friend of Harry Styles in Autumn 2011. They dated for a short while before making it official in November.
