Ruth reckons One Direction's Liam has similar personality traits to Ross

Liam Payne reminds his older sister Ruth of a much-loved fictional character.

Ruth, 23, can’t help giggling when she watches Friends as she sees similarities between Liam, 20, and palaeontologist Ross Geller, who was played by David Schwimmer.

‘@Real_Liam_Payne you are defo ross from friends , makes me laugh everytime i see him,’ Tweeted Ruth at the weekend.

Liam is currently on the South American leg of One Direction‘s Where We Are stadium tour, which will also take the group around Europe and North America.

It seems as though he’s enjoying the trip, Tweeting yesterday: ‘So excited to b in Brazil can’t believe I’m actually hear.’

Plenty of 1D fans are also Friends viewers and they reckon Ruth‘s comment about her younger brother was pretty accurate.

‘the time when they move the couch and Ross yells “Pivot…Pivot!!!!” Hahaha yeah that’d be Liam all the way,’ Tweeted one.

Another cheekily referred to Ross‘s on-off love interest Rachel Green, writing: ‘omfg and I will be Rachel.’
