The singer wants sculpted abs
The singer’s driving instructor Noel Gaughan says Liam, 20, trains for two hours most days and lives off chocolate bars and coffee when he can’t work out.
‘When I was with him recently, he went all day on just coffee and Kit Kats – five days in a row. He said he didn’t want to feel full when he wasn’t exercising. That’s all he allowed himself,’ says Noel.
‘Liam‘s got his own gym which he showed me around. It’s amazing. He even showed me his six-pack – and when he hugged me I could really feel his muscles.’
Noel spent a week with Liam while helping him get his licence and the Wolverhampton-born star is believed to have said that he aims to get a washboard stomach.
But some of Liam‘s pals reckon he may be using exercise to take his mind off the massive pressures of being in such a famous group.
‘The intensity of life in the band seems to affect Liam more than the other boys, and going to the gym seems to be one of the only things that relaxes him,’ a source tells the Daily Star.
‘But we do sometimes fear he might get carried away – especially if he’s not eating properly.’
