We have all been blubbering messes ever since it was confirmed that Zayn Malik had quit One Direction yesterday afternoon, and it looks as though we aren’t the only ones finding the news a little bit hard to deal with.

The 22-year-old’s bandmates, Harry Styles, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson have all alluded to his departure on Twitter with vague tweets to the fans, with Niall Horan so far opting to stay quiet, but there have been more than enough celeb tweets floating around in the meantime, with everybody from Simon Cowell to Zoella sharing their reaction to the shocking news:

1. Simon Cowell got philosophical

2. Zoella represented all of us

3. Gary Barlow reminisced

4. Matty from The 1975 made a poorly timed joke

5. Rylan was so distressed that he couldn’t even spell Zayn’s name right

6. Mark Hoppus of Blink 182 felt a little bit responsible (Dare we ask why?)

7. McBusted’s James’ Bourne knows all too well how hard losing a band member can be and offered Directioners some sound support

8. Jack Whitehall just couldn’t believe he was going through the heartache yet again

9. McBusted’s Harry Judd commended Zayn for his brave decision
