Fresh from the 1D star's decision to become a normal early twenties kid, we look at what treats/fears Zayn could be in for!

So we're all JUST about getting over the news that Zayn Malik has actually left One Direction (we're kidding - of COURSE we're not over it just yet), and now it's all about what the former boy band superstar will do next.

According to the ever-pouting heartthrob's statement he just wants to live life as "a normal 22 year-old" and, despite widespread rumours of a solo career on the horizon, for now that's just what Zayn's trying to do!

To give the former 1D'er a look at what life will be like for him now he's no longer part of the BIGGEST band on the planet, we've quizzed a bunch of bonafide 22 year-olds (including our very own Roman Kemp) on what it's REALLY like to be an early twenties kid trying to make it in the world.
