– The british boy band One Direction has gained so much popularity over the past few months, it’s inzayn! Tricia Brannan, who lives in Bradford with Zayn’s father Yaser and 3 sisters, remains close to her son despite his busy work commitments.
‘I don’t expect Zayn to text me all the time,’ says Tricia, 42.
‘But I text him “night night, Son” and he texts back “love you, Mum”.’
Tricia admits she gets upset when Zayn, 19, is away from home for work but if he’s in London she’ll often travel down to do his washing.
But if he Tweets that he’s returning north, One Directioners will quickly flock to Tricia’s East Bowling house.
‘Girls come and stand at the gate,’ says Tricia.
‘Fans ask me for permission to marry him but he can choose his own Mrs.’
