Zayn Malik leaves One Direction

In a brief statement, One Direction's PR man Simon Jones has confirmed that Zayn Malik has decided to leave the band: "After five incredible years, Zayn Malik has decided to leave One Direction. Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson will continue as a four-piece and look forward to the forthcoming concerts of their world tour and recording their fifth album, due to be released later this year."

In a decision that will no doubt break the hearts of his many fans, Malik said in a statement of his own: "I'd like to apologise to the fans if I've let anyone down, but I have to do what feels right in my heart", before explaining that his decision to leave was "because I want to be a normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight."

The rest of the band added: "We're really sad to see Zayn go, but we totally respect his decision and send him all our love for the future."
