Known to us as ‘Daddy Directioner’ and our very own ‘Leeyum’, Liam James Payne was born in Wolverhampton on the 29th August 1993. He was born three weeks early and is the son of Geoff and Karen Payne. He has two older sisters: Nicola and Ruth.
Liam is the third oldest member of One Direction and first auditioned for The X Factor in 2008 at just 14 years old. He impressed judges made it all the way to boot camp but Simon thought he was too young at the time and asked him to re-audition in a few years time. Two years later, Liam re-auditioned in Birmingham when he was 16 years old. His audition song was ‘Cry Me a River’ by Justin Timberlake and the audience gave him a standing ovation after his performance. At boot camp, Liam sang ‘Stop Crying Your Heart Out’ by Oasis but didn’t make it through as a solo artist. He was then however chosen by the judges to become part of One Direction.
Over the years, Liam has only reported to have been in one relationship. He started dating dancer Danielle Peazer during The X Factor in 2010 and they carried on dating until September 2012. According to reports, they split up as they were finding it increasingly difficult to find time to spend together. Liam and Danielle then apparently got back together for a few months between the end of 2012 and early 2013.
A few interesting facts about Liam include the following; his favourite colour is purple, he has a strange phobia of spoons, he’s admitted that one of his guilty pleasures are S Club 7, his favourite track from their debut album is ‘I Want’ and when he was younger, he wanted to be a fireman.

It’s the heavily-rumored bromance/romance that refuses to die. We’re talking about our lads Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson, of course! Why? Because this week, “Larry Stylinson” reappeared and shot back to the forefront, as EntertainmentWise reportered that one of the Top 5 on Tumblr’s list of 2014’s “Most Shipped Couples” happened to be our two
Liam Payne is sexy, there’s no doubt about that. But what actually is it that makes the One Direction heartthrob so irresistible? Is it his sweet charm, dashing good looks or seductive dance moves?

One Direction are NOT divas. Despite being some of the most famous faces in the world, they’ve managed to stay grounded and they’re pretty much still normal lads. They get invited to fancy events and drive flash cars, but they don’t really indulge in the celeb lifestyle as much as they could and they’ve certainly
One Direction are the biggest boyband in the world, and every single day all eyes are on them. They’ve been doing what they do in the spotlight for four years now, so we’d assume that they’re pretty used to it by now. However, Liam has recently admitted that being in the limelight takes its toll
