Zayn Malik has opened up in his autobiography, of an eponymous title, about suffering from an eating disorder during his time in One Direction. He revealed that food felt like "the one thing in his life he could control".
He has always been open about his mental health and issues with anxiety, but this is the first time he's spoken publicly about his past eating disorder.
"It wasn't as though I had any concerns about my weight or anything like that, I'd go for days- sometimes two or three days straight- without eating anything at all. It got quite serious, although at the time I didn't recognise it for what it was".
Continuing "I had lost so much weight I had become ill. The workload and the pace of life on the road put together with the pressure and strains of everything going on within the band had badly affected my eating habits".
Eating disorders in men is a topic which is often not spoken about, read our #HotTopic HERE
