WORLD EXCLUSIVE Liam now enjoys the odd tipple

Liam Payne is no longer the ‘quiet, responsible’ member of One Direction

He used to believe he had only one working kidney so avoided alcohol, but a recent check-up revealed he has two. That means he’s finally able to ‘loosen up’.

‘I still wouldn’t go to the bar and actually order a drink,’ Liam, 19, tells Now’s Dan Wootton.

‘That’s not the person I am. I definitely wouldn’t drink beer – I hate it. It’s horrible.’

The big question is: has Liam got a bit tipsy yet?

‘A few times!’ he admits. ‘I have done, yeah.

‘You have to get used to being off the cuff and very spontaneous.

‘That’s kind of what our life is like.’
