Chris Martin has confessed he is a massive fan of boyband One Direction.
The Coldplay frontman has given his first interview since wife Gwyneth Paltrow announced their "conscious uncoupling" to BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe.
During the one hour chat, due to air on Monday April 28 at 7pm, Chris said: "I'm saying One Direction are brilliant. I'm not kidding."
Chris - who is dad to daughter Apple who is nearly 10 and eight-year-old son Moses - also opened up about his recent problems.
He said: "Everyone through their lives goes through challenges, whether it's love or money or kids or illness."
