London: Singer Liam Payne of One Direction band says he is "quite nerdy" when he isn’t working and hangs out with old friends and play video games with them.

Payne said that he still has the same friends back home as he did before the band.

“That`s really important to me. They treat me the same as they always did. My mate Andy from college moved to London around the same time as I did, so he comes over to my house a lot. Often he`ll bring his friends with him and we go out together,” quoted Payne as saying.

“We`re quite nerdy and have games nights, as well as movie nights on Wednesdays if I`m home. It`s nice to do something really down to earth and normal,” added the 20-year-old.
