Liam James Payne is part of successful boy band One Direction. He was evicted from the seventh series of The X Factor at the boot camp stage, but was later re-called with four other rejected auditionees to create One Direction. The group eventually finished the competition third and, having been mentored by Simon Cowell on the show, signed a £2 million record deal with Syco afterwards. Their debut single What Makes You Beautiful was released in September 2011 and reached number one in the UK Singles Chart. Payne is currently in a relationship with The Saturdays backing dancer, Danielle Peazer. They have been together since 2010, after they met on The X Factor.
