We interrupt the rolling Clarkson coverage to tell you that Zayn Malik has quit One Direction.
He said: "I'd like to apologise to the fans if I've let anyone down, but I have to do what feels right in my heart. I am leaving because I want to be a normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight."
The group, who are currently on tour in Asia said: "We're really sad to see Zayn go, but we totally respect his decision and send him all our love for the future."
The band added in a statement on their Facebook page: "Niall, Harry, Liam and Louis will continue as a four-piece and look forward to the forthcoming concerts of their world tour and recording their fifth album, due to be released later this year."
