One Direction star Zayn Malik has said his mother has given him grief about his ever-growing tattoo collection.

The singer said he has reassured her that the designs covering his arms and body will look acceptable when he reaches later life.

His extensive collection includes a large microphone, cartoonish lettering and a stylised picture of his fiancee Perrie Edwards from X Factor winners Little Mix.

In an interview with the latest edition of Top Of The Pops magazine he said: " Obviously mums don't really like tattoos, and she's a bit like, 'when you're older, what are you going to do?'.

"But I think when I'm an older bloke, they'll still look cool," he added.

The group - named the most popular act in the world in 2013 in a study earlier this week - have just unveiled the video for their next single Midnight Memories which is released on March 9.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
