And then came the news every fan was dreading – after a fraught week, in which he’d flown home from the boys' world tour amid rumours that he had cheated on fiancée Perrie, Zayn Malik announced that he was quitting Top Gear. Sorry, One Direction.

“My life with One Direction has been more than I could ever have imagined,” his official statement read. “But, after five years, I feel like it is now the right time for me to leave the band. I'd like to apologise to the fans if I've let anyone down, but I have to do what feels right in my heart. I am leaving because I want to be a normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight. I know I have four friends for life in Louis, Liam, Harry and Niall. I know they will continue to be the best band in the world.”
