One Direction's Liam Payne apparently hooked more than he bargained for when he caught a shark during a fishing trip.

The What Makes You Beautiful singer - who recently moved out of 1D's pad to live with his girlfriend Danielle Peazer - was fishing in San Diego and was stunned when he realised he had snagged a tiger shark, reports The Sun.

When Liam reeled in the shark he saw it was just a baby and threw it back into the water.

He said: "It was only my second time ever fishing and we had such great fun.

"We went fishing for half an hour and there was nothing at all. Then I pulled out a baby tiger shark."

Liam and his bandmates - Louis Tomlinson,Harry Styles, Niall Horan and Zayn Malik - are currently touring in the US, where their debut album Up All Night went straight to the top of the charts.
