One Direction’s Liam Payne recently broke one of his toes when he dropped his MacBook onto his foot. It’s not yet known whether the laptop also suffered any damage; let’s hope not, there’s always a big queue for the Genius Bar, and you don’t want to be standing around in the Apple Store for too long with a broken toe.

Anyway, this update on Payne’s foot was provided by band mate Louis Tomlinson during an interview on ‘Good Morning America’, where the boy band were plugging their new DVD.

Tomlinson told the telly show: “Liam’s actually broken his toe and nobody knows”.

Urged to reveal all, Payne added: “I broke it about a week ago now, I dropped a MacBook Pro on it”, before noting “which is not a very exciting story at all”. Which is true. It is not.

Though by telling it on US TV, one assumes a new MacBook is now in the post from a shrewd PR department at Apple HQ. And maybe some steel capped boots from Dr Marten.
