Liam Payne

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.
