Liam James Payne (born 29 August 1993) is an English singer and songwriter.
He rose to fame as a member of the boy band One Direction.
Payne made his debut as a singer when he auditioned for the British television series The X Factor in 2008. After being eliminated as a solo performer, he auditioned again in 2010 and was put into a group with four other contestants to form One Direction
Jack Whitehall awkwardly introduced Liam Payne at the Brit Awards as Naomi Campbell’s new ‘squeeze’? Well, turns out Naomi wasn’t best pleased.
Cast your minds back to the 2019 Brits that took place at The O2 in London last year, Liam had presented an award on stage with Winnie Harlow – at the time he had been dating Naomi, but the pair were notoriously private about their romance.
