Liam Payne has been labelled One Direction's equivalent of Gary Barlow.

His fellow bandmates have said the deep-voiced singer's natural leadership is similar to that of the Take That frontman.

Speaking to The Sun, Niall Horan said: "Liam has that Barlow aura. He says things like, 'Come on boys, let's roll. Let's get going'. He knows it and can't deny it."

Harry Styles, presumably the Robbie Williams of the group, joked that "he just needs the briefcase".

Payne recently came to the defense of his girlfriend Danielle Peazer on Twitter, directly replying to One Direction fans who were sending her abusive messages.

He told one follower: "leave her alone... how would you feel if someone said this too sum1 u care about you should be ashamed of yourself telin sum1 to go and die [sic]"

Yes Liam!
