Louis Tomlinson on One Direction hiatus

Louis Tomlinson finds it "weird" being away from One Direction.

The 23-year-old singer and his bandmates are preparing to go on hiatus following the completion of their world tour next year, and the 'Little Things' hitmaker thinks his behaviour will change once he's on his own.

He said: "It's weird doing things without the boys. When I'm with them, I can be as cheeky as I want, but it's a very different dynamic when you're on your own."

Though Louis is proud of how "genuine" he and his bandmates have always tried to be, he worries they should have censored themselves a bit more.

He said: "Me and the boys always made sure we were ourselves and as genuine as possible. Maybe sometimes we are too much ourselves - but it's quite refreshing for people to see that we're not all polished."

Louis - who recently joined Simon Cowell to select his 'X Factor' finalists - is now looking to the future and plans to work more on the business side of things with the mogul.

He told Closer magazine: "I was really s****ing myself [on 'The X Factor']. I had to give a speech in front of all the contestants. I was thinking of the right thing to say but just started waffling. Once I sat down next to Simon, I felt OK and he reassured me I had good instincts with picking talent. I make my mind up on people pretty quickly.

"Simon is still the boss but it's great to work with him and know he values my opinions and what I have to say."
