Spare a thought for the Irish lad who plays Zayn in a One Direction tribute act

His name is Jamie Searls, and he’s “off to the job centre”.

IT MAY BE easy to mock Directioners the world over for completely losing it over Zayn leaving One Direction – but spare a thought for the Irish lad who plays him in a 1D tribute act.

Singer and actor Jamie Searls, who is based in London, impersonates the floppy-haired crooner in Only One Direction. He’s second from the right in the picture below, looking impressively Zayn-like:

The act has been quite successful, with a tour of theatres around the UK scheduled to begin this Saturday.

Unfortunately, the real Zayn decided to throw a spanner in the works with the whole quitting thing - here’s Jamie’s reaction to the news:
