The 'Little Things' star has commented on an accident earlier this week that left a close friend in hospital.

One Direction star Liam Payne has revealed close friend Andy Samuels is "doing really well" after being injured in a fire that broke out at his London flat at the start of this week.

The 'Best Song Ever' singer's close friend suffered burns to his face and hands after an explosion on Liam's balcony on Monday evening (2nd September), reportedly while filling up a patio heater, but Liam has now updated fans on his friend's condition.

"Thanks for all the support at this time," Liam tweeted last night (5th September). "It's been a tough few days and it's only made me value everything so much more.

"[Andy's] doing really well I'm just so happy he's gonna be ok, no one wants to see there best mate like this," Liam then posted, in reply to a question, before posting to Andy's official Twitter page: "The invincible man."

Liam was hailed as a hero by fans after reportedly rushing to help Andy after the accident, while his girlfriend Daisie Smith recently revealed on Twitter that Andy is now in a "stable" condition.
