Liam Payne is considering a career as a David Beckham lookalike.

The One Direction heartthrob attended the launch party for the former soccer star's H&M swimwear collection last week and pictures of the pair together revealed a number of similarities, but Liam admits he's flattered by the comments.

He said: ''People have been saying that a lot recently. It's probably the most flattering thing anybody can say.

''Becks is pretty much a legend and a hero of all of ours and I do really admire his style. I don't think anyone can match him but I'll take it.

''If it all packs in, at least I'll have a job as a lookalike.''

However, the 20-year-old star is worried that his fans think he's intentionally copying David's style, as they both have matching quiff hairstyles, tattoos on their arms and a similar taste in clothes.

Liam told The Sun newspaper: ''The fans are always pointing it out on Twitter. I'm beginning to worry he'll think I'm a stalker.

''They make out like if he buys a red jumper, the next day I'm out in a red jumper. I just think the man is a legend.''

Liam and his bandmates Louis Tomlinson, 22, Zayn Malik, 21, and 20-year-olds Harry Styles and Niall Horan are currently enjoying some time off from their 'Where We Are' world tour after playing a number of dates in South America earlier this month.
