Liam Payne hits back at fat jibes

Liam Payne has laughed off comments about his weight - with a joke photo of himself looking bloated.

The One Direction star was apparently the target of fat jibes from internet trolls after a picture of him topless on his hotel balcony in Toronto emerged, with his torso looking rather less tight than usual.

Liam, 20, responded to comments on his 'paunch' by posting a picture of himself on Instagram with stuffing up his t-shirt and quipped: "I mean OH MY GOD I'm just so fat these days I think I need help! quick someone take the cookie jar."

While the boyband star may be a little sensitive about his body, he clearly has nothing to worry about.

Only last month he posted a prank picture of himself online which appeared to show him in the buff, with his unmentionables pixellated out.

He then posted the same picture which showed he was wearing swimming trunks and had been using an app which creates fake naked pictures.

But both versions showed off his sculpted abs.
