One Direction’s Liam Payne finds new way to stop his ears getting sun burnt *giggles*

One Direction have been in Australia a little too long for our liking so much so they've had time to invent a new anti-sun burn device, we're not sure it'll catch on though…

At last night's LOGIE awards — an Australian TV event, Liam Payne decided to don a pair of fluffy white ear muffs.

While there's no way they can be a fashion statement; the only explanation for this look is that the One Direction boys have come up with a novel way to prevent their ears burning in the strong Aussie sun.

Although Harry and Louis faces show they aren't too impressed by Liam's new look — embarrassed are you boys?

Louis has pulled his best 'I'm not with him' face while Harry's left eyebrow says it all.

But the collective charm of Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik and Liam Payne convinced the woman interviewing them to wear them too.

We don't judge her though - we'd be sucked in too!

The five fitties are on the Melbourne leg of their tour and didn't disappoint the hoards of screaming fans…

Harry wore his usual bow tie while Louis rocked his favourite braces and both boys stole attention in a nice shade of baby blue.

The rest of One Direction colour co-ordinated in shades of navy and black, but lets face it, do we really care what the boys wear? They'd look amazing in anything.
