Liam Payne's Harry Potter fandom just keeps growing...

Liam Payne‘s Harry Potter obsession may have risen to another level – as it comes out he has purchased Arthur Weasley’s flying car from the Chamber of Secrets film for a six-figure sum! Got to have something to play with during One Direction’s time off, eh? Nice addition to the driveway of his Surrey mansion, we say…

‘I bought the Harry Potter car and I put it in my garden. You know the blue car, the flying car? I bought one because I’m a bit of a geek,’ said the adorable star, who also had a Harry Potter-themed 22nd birthday party complete with a cake modelled as a book of spells.

The star also revealed, during his appearance on Nick Grimshaw’s BBC 1 Breakfast Show this morning, that he had been assigned to Harry’s Hogwarts house, Gryffindor, after doing the Sorting Hat quiz on the Pottermore fan site: ‘My friend got Hufflepuff and I got Gryffindor. He was so annoyed.’ Uh oh!

The Ford Anglia 105E car that Liam purchased is one of 15 that was used in filming the scene, where the enchanted car flew Harry and Ron to Hogwarts before it was crashed and destroyed after hitting the Whomping Willow. We hope Liam will look after this one a bit better than the boys did!

Until we get our invitation to Liam’s place (we’re sure it just got lost in the post…), we’re heading to the Warner Bros Harry Potter Studio Tour PRONTO to see an almost-identical version of his new favourite ride.
