A Zayn Malik lookalike who is a member of the UK’s most popular One Direction tribute band has vowed to continue despite the real star leaving the group.

Jamie Searls from London is a member of Only One Direction and was preparing to go on tour with the group when news broke that the real Bradford-born star was quitting the group.

But despite the star’s departure, Jamie will carry on with the band in the traditional five-person line-up.

He said on ITV’s This Morning: “I think like everyone else, when you’re reading like on Twitter and everything, you’re a bit shocked.

“The rest of us are staying together and it’s an exciting time for us. We’ve got two theatre tours coming up and got some international gigs as well…”

But even if he was to leave the group he would still have his own music to fall back on.

He will soon be releasing his debut solo single “Doing Time” on iTunes.
