Liam Payne Jokes About His Strange 'X Factor UK' Exit in a New Interview

Fans were super confused over the weekend when Liam Payne started to exit the stage after his X Factor performance, doubled back, then grabbed girlfriend Cheryl Cole and walked out towards the audience.

Now, the 24-year-old “Strip That Down” singer is opening up about exactly what went down.

“Producers told me to go this way,” he revealed to The Daily Mirror, “and it looked like I was going out the front, bossed off the stage and took my missus and buggered off.”

“But that’s what I got told to do and I got so much stick for it,” he continued. “It was hilarious, storming off the stage and taking my missus.”

So Liam was just following directions! At least he can laugh about the hilarious live TV moment.

When Liam Payne reunited with Harry Styles recently, it was emotional.

Speaking with The Sun recently, the “Bedroom Floor” singer opened up about running into Harry just after his stepfather passed away.

“I bumped into him in The Bowery Hotel. He’s been through a rough time recently,” Liam says. “God bless him, he was really happy to see me. The funniest thing was we didn’t really talk business. Dunkirk was out and all this was happening, and we just gave each other a big hug.”

He continues, “We didn’t say much but you could tell we were really happy to see each other. It was like touching home base.”

We love knowing that no matter what, the One Direction guys will always be there for each other.

Liam Payne Reacts to Rita Ora Imitating His Girlfriend Cheryl Cole!

Liam Payne was definitely amused by Rita Ora‘s imitation of his girlfriend Cheryl Cole!

Liam and Rita both visited BBC Radio 1 on Friday (October 20) in London, England, to talk about their new songs “Bedroom Floor” and “Anywhere,” respectively.

“['Bedroom Floor' is] about a torrid relationship where you’re torn – you’re not in or out but you always end up with your clothes on the bedroom floor,” Liam explained.

Rita revealed that she wrote “Anywhere” (which she described as “folky with a sick beat”) in Los Angeles while missing her hometown of London.

“I felt really still and stuck,” she shared. “I just felt really slow and I wanted to listen to a song I could drive into the distance with. I wrote this song because I wanted to hit the road.”

“I was literally grabbing people from the street and kissing them,” she added about the music video, shot in New York City. “They were looking at me like I was crazy. They were all really good and wanted to be involved.”

“The cab driver kissed me and I think we’re now dating,” she joked.

Listen below to hear Rita‘s impression of Cheryl‘s Newcastle accent as she pretends to talk to the couple’s nearly seven-month-old son Bear!
