Liam Payne breaks toe

One Direction star Liam Payne has broken his toe.

The British-Irish boyband is currently on tour across North America, but Payne has been hiding an agonising secret as he sings and dances his way through shows after crushing his foot with a laptop.

During a pre-taped interview on breakfast show Good Morning America, which aired on Wednesday (06Jun12), bandmate Louis Tomlinson said, "Liam's actually broken his toe and nobody knows."

Payne revealed, "I broke it about a week ago now. I dropped a MacBook Pro on it, which is not a very exciting story at all."
