Liam Payne turns 24 today — and fans are flooding Twitter with messages wishing him a happy birthday.
The singer is currently on a sunshine holiday with partner Cheryl Tweedy after the birth of their son Bear back in March.
He yesterday posted a picture on Instagram of him doing a Superman impression out of a swimming pool.
Last week he also posted a loved-up pic of the pair, with his arms wrapped around Cheryl’s shoulders.
Now fans have taken to social media with a string of pictures and messages to wish him well on his big day — with the hashtag #HappyBirthdayLiamPayne one of the most trending terms on Twitter.
Liam famously had a rumored 16th birthday party where nobody showed up, but that certainly wouldn’t be the case today.

They also posted Tweets of previous birthdays where fans — and Liam’s fellow One Direction stars — had sung him happy birthday.
Liam was born on 29 August 1993 in the English city of Wolverhampton. He suffered health difficulties as a child and bullying at secondary school but went on to come one of the biggest stars in the world after joining 1D.
He initially auditioned for The X Factor when he was just 14 back in 2008, before returning in 2010 which ultimately led to the band being formed.
