"Obviously mums don't really like tattoos, and she's a bit like, 'when you're older, what are you going to do?" Malik said during an interview with Top Of The Pops magazine.

"But I think when I'm an older bloke, they'll still look cool," he added.

One Direction were named the most popular act in the world in a study earlier this week.

You may have seen a photo of me today taken on top of a building. I regret being there and having a photo taken.

It was a stupid and irresponsible thing to do. I am sorry, and do not endorse any fans trying to repeat this, as it is extremely dangerous.

In the now-deleted photograph, Payne, 20, is standing on a ledge of a tower block with a city thought to be London seen sprawling behind him.

Court grants Harry Styles protection from paparazzi

Singer Harry Styles has won a court order stopping the paparazzi from harassing him.

The 19-year-old One Direction star applied to the High Court as a last resort after trying to persuade a number of photographers to stop their behaviour voluntarily, said counsel David Sherborne.

He told Mrs Justice Nicola Davies, who first granted the order against the unidentified individuals: "This is not a privacy injunction. Mr Styles is not trying to prevent fans approaching him in the street and taking photos. He remains happy to do that, as he always has.

"Rather, it is the method or tactics which have been used by a certain type of photographer."

The injunction against "Paparazzi AAA and others" prevents them from pursuing the singer by car or motorcycle, placing him under surveillance, loitering or waiting within 50 metres of his place of residence to monitor his movements or take photos of him in such circumstances.
