– Liam Payne’s family have been forced to relocate because of One Direction fans surrounding his home. The singer’s former hairdresser Nick Malenko is regularly in touch with Liam’s mum and recently went to see the band live in London. ‘They’ve had to move house because the fans were constantly queuing up outside their house and peering through the windows,’ says Nick.
Nick thinks 18-year-old Liam’s success is ‘phenomenal’ – but he’s not surprised.
‘Liam was always a lovely, confident, fabulous young man but he was never cocky and was so polite,’ says Nick.
‘I hoped he’d do well because of that.’
