The former (we can say that now, right?) One Direction star Tweeted to his 23m followers this afternoon (21st July) confirming the news that he was stepping out as a solo artist.

It's been a busy year for Liam since the band went on hiatus last year - especially since his relationship with fellow X Factor star and pop princess Cheryl has ramped up.

Liam has also been nominated for Capital's Sexiest Male In Pop 2016 - and if you agree that he's hot stuff, vote now!

Fans were overwhelmingly happy for Liam, but many are predicting the end of One Direction. So far, Zayn's already gone solo, Harry's headed to Hollywood, Louis' a dad AND a reality TV judge, and Niall's working on solo material of his own... 

"Hiatus", eh?

Keep it Capital to hear Liam's new music before anyone else!
