One Direction stars did not get on
One Direction star Liam Payne has told how he wanted to "whack" Louis Tomlinson when the band first got together because they did not get on.
The heartthrobs have told how acrimonious things were between them in a clip taken from the DVD release of their movie, This Is Us.
They said that there was a conflict of personalities, the Daily Mirror reported.
Liam said: "The funniest thing now is that me and Louis did not get on at all. We were two completely different characters.
"He was so loud and bubbly, and there was one point where I literally wanted to whack him."
Louis added: "We used to be at each other's throats while we were on the X Factor. He took it so, so seriously.
"But whenever I wanted to do anything slightly mischievous he was always the daddy. That is why he got the nickname Daddy Directioner. He is the dad who you trust to book your holiday."
The group, complete with Harry Styles, Zayn Malik and Niall Horan, eventually settled down with Niall admitting : "If it wasn't for Louis, we'd be the most boring band in the world. But at the same time he knows the balance between getting the job done and having a laugh."
