Liam Payne was astonished to find his boxer shorts had been stolen while staying in Sydney.

The singer is currently on tour in Australia performing with his group One Direction.

After putting on a show with the boys - Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson - at Sydney's Allphones Arena Liam was pleased to get back to his hotel for a good night's sleep.

However, the musician was left bewildered when he awoke to discover someone was trying to force entry into his room while he lay undressed in his bed.

"Strangest way I've ever been woken up, When ur in bed butt naked an sum1 is trying to force open your balcony this is gunna be a strange day" he wrote on Twitter.

"So happy I woke up cuz that s**t would have been so unfair (sic)".

It wasn't long after waking up that Liam realised his boxer shorts were nowhere to be seen. He retraced his steps on the social-networking site and put the disappearance down to someone stealing them.

"Hmmm somebody stole my boxers I'm so embarrassed" he revealed. "So how this happened... I went in the sea in those hotel staff put them outside to dry sum1 climbed on and stole them just to set the scene (sic)".

After assessing the situation Liam gave a nickname to the day full of bizarre antics. He also joked about whose underwear he would like to steal if given the chance.

"#breakIntoSomeonesHouseAndStealThereUnderwearDay right I'm off to scarlett johansson's house (sic)" he mused.

It seems his bandmate was also in need of help while in Sydney. Zayn appeared to be the victim of an invasion of flies and turned to his followers on Twitter for advice.

"Where can I buy a giant fly squatter ? :) (sic)" he asked fans.
