One Direction’s Liam Payne has revealed his sisters used to make him cross-dress.

Payne said his two sisters used to make him dress in girl’s clothes for their amusement.

He told British newspaper The Sun: ‘My sisters used to dress me… They used to try to influence my fashion a bit. Which you know… may have involved a heel or two.’

Payne added his sisters nicknamed him ‘Cheesy Head’ because he ate cheesy crisps all day.

One Direction came third on The X Factor UK, and stormed to global success after releasing their debut single What Makes You Beautiful.

They are also the first UK band to go straight to the US album chart with a debut record.

One Direction was put together by Simon Cowell out of solo artist auditionees.

Payne told morning show Daybreak he and his bandmates were ‘lucky’ after being made into a group.

‘It’s just really surreal to think you were one of those five lucky people,’ he said. ‘Anyone could have been chosen that day.’

Payne is currently in a relationship with dancer Danielle Peazer.
