Yep, fans were so keen to meet Liam that a massive crowd surge broke out which left Liam with a er, Chinese burn.

OK, so 'injury' might be a bit on the dramatic side, but Chinese burns can really hurt so we stand by the headline.

Liam tweeted a picture of his 'Chinese burn' after the boys eventually safely made it to their car.

He wrote: 'The awkward moment when a girl gives you a Chinese burn in the airport", then added jokingly: "My scratch is that bad I think I might just have to cut my arm off."

Security was appaz super worried for the boys. Copyright: [wenn] According to the snappers who were there, the band's security team struggled to cope with the number of fans who turned up.

Liam has since said on Twitter: "That was actually horrible I literally wanted to cry and all those people shouting s*** at us and we even tried to stop so s*** (sic)." He later added:

Directioners, take note, sometimes all a One D boy wants is a smooth trip to his car without the need for earplugs and protective clothing.

Imagine what would happen if they had to get the tube...

After last night's performance at the Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball, Liam is in the UK to perform on tonight's X Factor final with One Direction.

The boys are backing James Arthur to win so we are crossing all our fingers and toes that means a surprise duet is on the cards.
