How One Direction are enjoying their time off

The members of One Direction have been enjoying some well-earned time out of their busy schedules.


Having finished an 131-date world tour in November, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Harry Styles have been taking a break before they hit the road again for their "Where We Are" tour.

While Harry remains in sunny LA, his bandmate Liam also sought the opportunity to take a holiday.


Liam jetted off for a romantic getaway with his girlfriend Sophia Smith and began using the hashtag #liamsholidaydiary, to keep his 15 million followers in the loop.

"Hello mr @scott_mills listening to you far away on holiday thank you for providing the soundtrack to our beach view," wrote Liam, along with a photo of himself posing in a shell bikini.

Liam's exotic photo didn't only cause a stir among One Direction fans, Lady Gaga also noticed the 20-year-old's playful holiday snap.

"You are a real life Botticelli Babe!" tweeted the Do What You Want singer. "Lookin good #Applause4Liam!!"

For Zayn and Louis, the break from work meant the chance to spend time with their family and friends at home.

"Good times with the fam!" posted 21-year-old Zayn, along with a photo of himself surrounded by relatives. "#feelinlikeakidagain! Ha!"

"Sorry had to upload this ha :)," wrote Doncaster-born Louis with a video of himself playing football in his garden. "2nd time lucky!" he jokingly added as the first ball missed the goal and the second ball got stuck in a tree.

During his downtime, 20-year-old Niall has also been indulging his passion for football.

The Irish singer paid a visit to Derby County Football Club, where he excitedly met with players Patrick Bamford and Ben Davies.
