Liam Payne on One Direction

Former One Direction member Liam Payne admits they were "over worked" in the band.

The boys found fame on The X Factor in 2010 but they split up five years later.

Liam says if he hadn't left the band, 'it would have killed me.'

The singer makes the admission during a chat on Jessie Ware's Table Manners podcast.

"We were definitely overworked. I had no personal life, I learnt nothing about myself."

He goes on, "I remember getting to therapy and the guy was like, "What do you like to do?" I haven't got a clue."

"I just lived so long as this reclusive pop star who was afraid of people, who just stayed inside all the time."

"I needed to stop, definitely. It would have killed me."

He talks about their split, "I think we kind of rubbed off on each other a little bit in that way."

"In a bad way, actually. All of that stuff puts so much pressure on a relationship."

"For her, if you were going out somewhere, it would take so long to get out of the door because you're just so worried."

Liam is now dating model Maya Henry and it seems he's really happy with her.

He gushes, "[Maya's] awesome ... it's kind of got to the point with my life, where I'm like, screw this."

"It's not worth my happiness."

"If someone is going to take a picture, someone is going to do something."

"The difference is with her, she's so relaxed that it helps me relax in a situation."
