Liam James Payne (born August 29, 1993) is a singer from England. He became well-known as a member of the boy band One Direction. Payne made his singing debut in 2008 when he auditioned for the British television show The X Factor. He auditioned again in 2010 after being eliminated from the competition. He was placed in a group with four other contestants to form One Direction, which became one of the best-selling boy bands ever. Payne collaborated with other producers under the monikers “Big Payno” and “Payno” to create remixes for his group’s and Cheryl’s songs.

Fans and cosmetic surgery experts noticed Liam Payne’s dramatically slimmed-down face on the red carpet on Thursday.
“He didn’t look bad before, but his face looks model-ish and rugged now, instead of soft and a little bit chubby,” celebrity plastic surgeon Dr Ramtin Kassir, who has worked on Melissa Gorga and Lele Pons, tells us exclusively.
“He has a more masculine look with sharper chiselled facial features compared to how he looked previously,” Florida-based plastic surgeon Dr Thomas Su adds. “His new look is sharper than it was in the past and has a bit of a ‘wow factor’ for sure with how different his facial structure looks,” says Pamela Weinberger, founding injector at Plump Cosmetics.
The experts we spoke with, who have decades of combined experience but have not worked on Payne, agree that the former One Direction member used fillers or the celebrity-favourite buccal fat removal procedure to achieve his sharp features.
Weinberger claims that the 29-year-old singer of “What Makes You Beautiful” may have opted for jawline filler, lip filler, chin filler, and regular maintenance Botox.
Liam Payne Early Life
Liam James Payne was born at New Cross Hospital in Wolverhampton’s Heath Town district, West Midlands, England. He is the son of infant nurse Karen Payne and fitter Geoff Payne. Nicola and Ruth Payne are his two older sisters. Payne was born three weeks early and was frequently ill. Payne was hospitalised regularly until age four, when doctors discovered that one of his kidneys was scarred and dysfunctional.
As a child, he had sixteen injections in his arm every morning and another sixteen every evening to help him cope with the pain. Payne was heavily involved in sports as a student, mainly cross-country running. Payne began his running career with the Wolverhampton and Bilston Athletics Club. For three years, he was ranked in the top three 1500m runners in the country in his age group.
He began boxing lessons at twelve to deal with bullying from some older students in secondary school. Payne studied music technology at the City of Wolverhampton College after finishing 11 GCSEs at St Peter’s Collegiate School (now St Peter’s Collegiate Academy).
Liam Payne Career Foundation
Payne first auditioned for The X Factor’s fifth series in 2008, at 14, in front of judges Simon Cowell, Cheryl Cole, Dannii Minogue, and Louis Walsh. Payne advanced past the first round after singing “Fly Me to the Moon” by Frank Sinatra. He was later cut at the Boot Camp stage, but Cowell changed his mind and invited Payne back for the judges’ houses stage. Payne has fired again during the judges’ houses, but Cowell encouraged him to “come back in two years.”
Payne auditioned for the seventh series of the show in 2010 in front of Cowell, Cole, Walsh, and guest judge Natalie Imbruglia. He performed Michael Bublé’s rendition of “Cry Me a River,” earning him four yeses and a standing ovation from Cowell. Following his solo audition, Payne was regarded as the competition’s second favourite.
After failing to advance to the “Boys” category at the judges’ houses, Payne, along with Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, and Zayn Malik, were put together to form a five-piece boy band at Wembley Arena during the boot camp stage of the competition, thus qualifying for the “Groups” category.
