The Late Late host asked the pop sensation how he keeps entertained whilst on the road for months at a time – Louis' tour ran from February to September of this year.

Louis revealed that his favourite hobby of pranking has seen him through all his tours, from the boy band's first travelling endeavour Up All Night to his solo days.

“This happened in the one direction days to be fair, and I kinda carried it through to my own tour," the 'Bigger Than Me' singer sai.d

He told James that whichever band or crew member falls asleep first on a night out will fall victim to some cheeky antics.

“I get a master key in the hotel, which lets me into every single room," he explained.

Louis continued to give the presenter the lowdown: “Didn’t do anything too bad, just screamed in his face, seen him cower a little bit and ran out. Just silly antics you get up to on tour.”

He went on to recall his days in the band, admitting that the boys threw a bucket of ice water on one of their sleeping security guards!

"That is an actual torture," Corden reacted to the throwback.

Looks like Louis' extensive touring experience will come in handy as he gears up to the release of his second solo studio album – he sure is busy!
