Liam Payne’s ears pricked up when he heard One Direction playing at Wembley.
Always one to share his 1D nostalgia with devoted fans, Liam whipped out his phone to share the moment with Directioners.
“So, I’ve just arrived at Wembley and I don’t know if you can hear in the background but…” he said, pausing to let the music pick up.
“What are the chances?” he added.
And if you listen closely you’ll notice ‘Drag Me Down’ was in fact playing.
Fans loved the moment of nostalgia, with one replying: “Still dominating!”
“Directioners can hear and see everything,” commented another.
And they aren’t wrong.
One Direction is clearly on Liam’s mind, as the surprise backing track comes after he confessed to having a dream about the boyband, including Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles.
The 'Strip That Down' singer spilled to his followers on his Instagram story: "I just figured out that I had the weirdest One Direction related dream.
"True story, I swear to God."
The father-of-one went on to talk about how, in his dream, he was hanging out with his ex-bandmates – and it sounded like they were having fun just like the old days!
He continued: "The first part of the dream I was arguing with Zayn because I had stolen one of his leather jackets, but it was my leather jacket, it wasn't his!"
Louis also made an appearance in the dream, Liam said: "And then the second part of the dream I had a boxing match with Tommo and I couldn’t hit him, it was like a full boxing match. I wasn’t allowed to punch him, and it was really frustrating!
“At least you know I'm thinking of you boys.”
