The former boy band superstar has confessed that he struggled being in the spotlight and also said that the thoughts of being "famous again" as a solo artist was just as petrifying.
Liam Payne told KISS FM: "When the band started our break I struggled with the idea of becoming famous again, it scared the living daylights out of me. Because the last time it nearly killed me, frankly."
He added: "So I had to figure out a way to make it work for me - rather than me work for it."
But he also spoke about having a "fantastic life" now.
'I love my life, it's been fantastic but there have been a lot of struggles to get to this point. It's about having good people around you. They don't have to be a psychologist - just people who are friendly, someone to talk to."
