The cheeky boy band star seemingly stripped off for a holiday snap, before revealing the true picture!

Liam Payne made every Directioners day over the weekend when he stripped off on Instagram… before revealing it was all a cheeky prank!

The One Direction star caused Instagram to go into meltdown yesterday when he shared a snap on the site of him seemingly naked on the back of a boat while enjoying a sunny day out.

Liam had a confused expression on his face in the snap, in which his private parts had been pixelated out, alongside a caption reading: "Damn that was my last pair!"

However, after Instagram followers began liking and commenting like crazy, Liam dropped another snap of himself in some fetching black swimming trunks that proved his 'naked' selfie had been a sneaky trick! Clever boy Liam!

The One Direction boys are currently out in Madrid enjoying some time off after ending the EU leg of their 'Where We Are' stadium tour, which resumes in Toronto, Canada on 1st August.
