He has one elder sibling, Gemma. Harry was seven years of age when his parents divorced, before his mother Anne subsequently remarried.

Prior to participating in the seventh series of The X Factor in 2010, 16 year old Harry had a part time job at the W. Mandeville Bakery in his home town.
Harry was the lead singer in a band named White Eskimo - his fellow band members being lead guitarist Haydn Morris, bass guitarist Nick Clough and drummer Will Sweeny.

He also cites Presley for his musical beginnings.
Harry cites contemporary music acts such as Foster the People, Coldplay and Kings of Leon among his many musical infleunces. Harry has said that The X Factor gave him a 'lot more' confidence as a performer and that he often looks to Coldplay's front-man Chris Martin for inspiration when performing on stage, which has likely come in handy for each of One Direction's concert tours. Harry has stated that as a child, The Beatles were a major influence and his father often played their music to him.

Verdict on The X Factor audition: All four judges - Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh, Cheryl Cole and Natalie Imbruglia - said yes, meaning Liam progressed to Boot Camp.



- Liam's favourite colour is purple and he has a crush on Leona Lewis
- He was born with a damaged kidney, but can surf as well as beat-box
- His man crush is Michael McIntyre, and he and girlfriend Cheryl have a son named Bear together
- Liam was considered the most 'serious' member of One Direction

Liam was born on 29 August 1993 and is from Wolverhampton in the West Midlands, England. He was born three weeks early to parents Karen and Geoff Payne. He has two older sisters, Ruth and Nicola. Until the age of four, Liam had regular tests done in hospital as doctors noticed one of his kidneys was scarred and dysfunctional. To help cope with the pain, he had 32 injections in his arm in the morning and evening as a child.
As a student, Liam was heavily involved in sports and extra-curricular activities. Liam was bullied in secondary school and took up boxing lessons at just twelve years of age. He was a music technology student at the City of Wolverhampton College.
Liam once performed in front of a 26,000 strong crowd at Wolverhampton Wanderers football match. He supports West Bromwich Albion. Liam first auditioned for The X Factor in 2008 to the fifth series of the show when he was just fourteen. He made it to judges' houses but Simon Cowell believed that he was not ready for the competition at such a young age and asked him to come back in a 'couple of years' time'.
Liam did indeed come back to the show two years later and auditioned with 'Cry Me a River' which blew the judges away. Payne's musical influences are cited as Justin Timberlake. He also draws inspiration from Take That's lead singer Gary Barlow when performing.

As a student at Hall Cross, Louis appeared in several of the school's musical productions.

Full name Zain Javadd 'Zayn' Malik
Date of birth 12 January 1993 (age 24)
Place of birth Bradford, West Yorkshire (England)
Height 1.70m
Parents Tricia Malik (née Brannan), Yaser Malik
Nationality English, Irish
Siblings Doniva, Waliyha, Safaa
Star sign Capricorn
X Factor auditionee number 165616
X Factor audition song You Should Let Me Love You
Place of audition Manchester Central, Manchester
Twitter followers 23.6 million
Instagram followers 23.8 million



Verdict on The X Factor audition: All three judges - Nicole Scherzinger, Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh - said yes, meaning Zayn progressed to Boot Camp.



- It wasn't until The X Factor that Zayn decided to go by the name 'Zayn', because he liked how it looked
- He still hasn't changed his name officially, however in Arabic it means 'beautiful'
- Zayn is afraid of open water and his favourite colour is blue
- His man crush is Justin Timberlake and he wrote his own verse in the song What Makes You Beautiful

Zayn grew up in East Bowling and was a pupil at Lower Fields Primary School. He attended Tong High School, a state comprehensive school. Zayn didn't fit in at his first two schools due to his mixed heritage, although he has stated that he started taking great pride in his appearance after moving schools at just twelve years of age.
Upon auditioning for The X Factor, Zayn stated: "I was looking for an experience". He cites urban music as his main influence and growing up he was a fan of R&B and rap music. Zayn, as well as other members of One Direction, further notes that working with artists such as Bruno Mars would be a "dream collaboration".
Since 18 August 2013, Zayn has been engaged to Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards. He, along with Harry and Louis, support Manchester United football team. In other sports, Zayn supports Pakistan's national cricket team.
Music aside, Zayn is Muslim - which has sometimes attracted criticism. Debbie Schlussel, a blogger, accused him of advertising Islam to young One Direction fans, while at the same time he was also criticised on Twitter by conservative Muslim representatives for not taking Islamic doctrine seriously. In July 2014 controversy arose when he reportedly provoked anger from a number of Israeli One Direction fans after tweeting "#FreePalestine". He has also affirmed his faith by tweeting "La ila ha ill lalla ho muhammed door rasoolalah" (translated as: "There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah").
Zayn left the band in March 2015 to become a "normal 22 year-old" again. He has since been working with producer Naughty Boy on solo music.
