He recently showed off his business sense by investing his hard-earned cash in a £3m mansion in a exclusive area of North London.

Back on the market: One Direction’s Liam Payne splits from girlfriend Danielle Peazer after spending ‘more and more time apart’
He’s spent much of the year touring the world with the rest of One Direction.

But it would seem the pressures of sustaining a predominantly long-distance relationship have got too much for Liam Payne, who has reportedly called time on his relationship with dancer girlfriend Danielle Peazer.

Little Mix must have success in their DNA
IT’S a wonder LITTLE MIX have any new songs recorded if they keep lying down on the job.

But The X Factor winners have got a confident follow-up to No1 Wings, which will please SIMON COWELL.

I’ve had an early listen to DNA, released on November 11, and it’s another slick pop song.

The track, which features a dramatic choral breakdown to make GARETH MALONE proud, sounds a lot like JESSIE J’s Do It Like A Dude.

They’ve even developed a Jessie-style stutter-singing.

It also reminds you of Nineties girlgroups like EN VOGUE – JESY, LEIGH-ANNE, PERRIE and JADE’s idols – except with the added dubstep that dominates the charts these days.

‘DNA’ – wails of princesses
There are some great vocal acrobatics in the new Little Mix single, ‘DNA’, but vocally and as a song it’s far less about showboating than predecessor ‘Wings’, and feels less as if it’s trying to make a statement about the band, their identity and their fanbase.

Instead it’s a chunky, straightforward pop tune. There are some neat production flourishes along the way and the lyrics are more complex than, for instance, those you might find in your average Carly Rae Jepsen album track, but at its heart it is – in the very best possible sense – a normal pop song. The ‘Say You’ll Be There’ to the ‘Wannabe’ of ‘Wings’, if you will.

Leggy Mix! Perrie Edwards and bandmate Jade Thirlwall film Celebrity Juice in minuscule outfits to show off their enviable pins

So obviously keen to make an impression they both turned up to the studios dressed to the max showing of their best assets.

Both girls opted to flaunt their legs in minuscule ensembles as they prepared for the hilarity of Keith Lemon, aka Leigh Francis, who would no doubt be grilling them and throwing innuendos their way.
