One Direction star Liam Payne might be back in the arms of his ex Danielle Peazer, and that’s just as well as Leona Lewis has described him as “the dad” of the group.
The 27-year-old has given an interview with Now magazine, where she opened up about the romance rumours surrounding her relationship with Liam, but the ‘Run’ singer insists that the pair are actually just mates and romance was not on the cards.

Now reports that Leona and Liam did go on a few dates, following Liam’s split from Danielle, and the X Factor champ claims that they just didn’t hit it off.
“Everyone was like ‘What!?’” Leona told Now. “It’s not going there. We’re friends.”

Leona, who has hardly set the charts on fire with her new album Glassheart, says that she’s glad that she’s a solo artist rather than in a band.
“I think it’s really hard being in a boy band. There’s a lot of dynamics,” she said. “You’ve got to always be ‘on’. I’m glad I was never in a band.”
She then described him as the Gary Barlow of the group, and with a laugh, said: “He’s like the band’s dad”. Ouch.
