Zayn Malik is expected to make his first solo appearance since quitting 'One Direction' at the annual Asian Awards event in London this evening.

The 22-year-old singer, who announced last month he was leaving the boyband to live a "normal life", will walk the red carpet at a ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel.

DJ Naughty Boy - real name Shahid Khan - is also attending the event and he and Malik are rumoured to be making an announcement about Malik's first solo music venture.

Shortly after Malik quit One Direction, Naughty Boy posted online a demo of song 'I Won't Mind', featuring Malik's vocals, but he deleted it 12 hours later.

One Direction singer Niall Horan acted as Rory McIlroy's caddie ahead of this week's Masters in Augusta.

The pop star proved he should stick to singing after badly hooking a tee shot on the ninth into the water.

"I apologise to golf," Horan joked. "I do perform to a lot of people but we were performing to their parents today! There was a lot of pressure."

McIlroy, who is looking to become the sixth player to complete the career grand slam by winning a first Masters title on Sunday, added: "I wanted to do this because it's a big week for me and just to go into the tournament in a relaxed mood. To spend a couple of hours like this was fun."
