The 1D singer was left embarrassed after an awkward encounter with the Spice Girl

Liam Payne was delighted to meet his idol Victoria Beckham at the Olympics Closing Ceremony in August – but he gave the Spice Girl a bit of a surprise when he leaned in for a kiss.

While band mate Louis Tomlinson played it safe with a simple greeting, the nervous 19-year-old made a complete fool of himself. 

Liam turned to say “hi” and went to hug and kiss her on the cheek,’ says Louis, 20. 

he went to give her two kisses, and I could see she looked over his
shoulder and she just had this look that said: “You’ve done something
seriously wrong here.”‘

Liam was left feeling embarrassed at the awkward moment, but the rest of One Direction found it hilarious.

‘She just recoiled a bit and looked shocked after the first kiss. I don’t think she really wanted that kind of greeting,’ Liam tells The Sun.

Louis Tomlinson from our band was stood next to me p*ssing himself.’
