One Direction’s Liam Payne is selling his old clothes online – but has been met with some rather strange fan requests.

The father-of-one has won £15,000 for charities The Trussell Trust and The Penrose Club using celebrity fashion site The Closets.

However, her fans would ask if the clothes are unwashed, apparently “eager” to get their hands on a pair of the star’s used socks.

Closet owner Alex said The star of the day : “Someone wanted Liam to train in a T-shirt and sweat as much as possible, used socks are very important.

“I don’t think that’s the thing Liam wants to interact with right now.

“Some come straight out of her wardrobe right after being worn and washed, they’re given to me, they’re not left with her smell.

He added: “One thing I often get is ‘are the clothes washed? Do they still smell like him? It’s a very common thing, the answer is, yes, they’re washed, they have to be, most of these clothes were from the One Direction days and they’ve been in storage ever since.”

The website states: “Liam Payne’s clothes, straight from his wardrobe, are sold to you with proceeds going to charity. What more could you ask for.

There are currently a pair of Hugo Boss trainers for £35, a Sacai jacket for £450 and a rather attractive pair of bright yellow Guess shorts for £35 all on sale.

Of course, Liam isn’t the only celeb to shed his old clothes.

Katie Price, Gemma Collins and Kerry Katona all use social media app Depop to make room in their wardrobes.

Liam has continued to record his own music since One Direction’s hiatus

Liam’s band One Direction rose to fame after forming on X Factor in 2010.

However, after a stratospheric rise to the top of the charts, cracks began to appear and vocalist Zayn Malik left the band in March 2015.

Liam, Harry Styles, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson gave their last performance in December.

All have recorded solo material, with Harry winning the Brit Awards and a second Grammy and Niall album released last year.

Liam said a One Direction reunion would happen sooner rather than later

However, in news that will delight fans, talks have supposedly begun for a One Direction reunion – and two of the bandmates promise it will be “as soon as possible”.

Liam said he spoke to Louis to discuss the idea after performing on the same project as reunited band The Wanted for Tom Parker’s charity concert.

Simon Cowell, who formed the band on The X Factor, said this year he thought the reunion would happen and would be “amazing”.
