I’m already sick of talking about it, but here I am again, talking about it.
This time, though, it’s not actually about Zayn Malik (well, it is, but not directly), it’s about the poor lad that plays him in this One Direction tribute band.
Jamie Searls is his name, and the Irish fella has been making a not-so-terrible living out of impersonating the now non-existent band member.

Luckily for Jamie, the band – Only One Direction – aren’t prepared to kick him out and will continue as a five piece. But it’s probably going to be a bit awkward when a new album drops and he has nothing to sing about.
A representative for the band said:
We are the closest thing to One Direction in the world, other than the band itself.
I’m not convinced.
