Liam Payne reckons that his former 1D bandmates have all got potty mouths. Not him though, he’s totally family friendly. Well, when it comes to swearing.

“I’m the only one who hasn’t had the explicit sticker on their album”, Payne told Metro. “Everybody’s been effing and blinding. Everyone’s ‘eff this’ and ‘that’ and ‘the other’. But they’re all adjectives at the end of the day. They’re just big ones”.

Just in case you thought you’d missed something, Liam Payne doesn’t actually have an album to slap an ‘explicit’ sticker onto yet. But when he does there’ll be no “fucking”.

Though there’ll be some “fucking”. By which I mean – as you’ll know if you’ve heard either of his solo singles to date – he seems very keen to use his limited skills as a lyricist to let everyone know he’s been busy ‘doing it’. Just without saying “fuck”.

“There’s been a few lyrics where I’m like, ‘Ooh, will these really rock my family?’ So I have to be careful”, he admits.
