One Direction were forced to perform as a four-piece on Friday after Bradford-born star Zayn Malik walked off the stage halfway through their gig.

Zayn Malik Walks Off Stage

Zayn and his band mates Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson were performing in Perth, Australia when he disappeared backstage and never returned.

It was eventually announced that the 22-year-old was too ill to continue the concert and they finished the show without him.

A spokesperson for the band said in a statement: “Zayn was taken ill during the show but it’s nothing serious. Everyone is hoping he’ll be well enough for their next gig.”

1D will perform in Japan this week.

The singer’s devoted fans have been tweeting messages of support since he was taken ill and #GetWellSoonZayn was trending on Twitter at one stage.
