Liam Payne has pulled the classic post-break up move of transforming his look now he's newly single.

The former One Direction singer, 27, has dyed his hair bright blonde and now looks completely different.

It comes after Liam confirmed that he has split from his fiancée Maya Henry after a 10-month engagement, saying "it had to happen".

And he seemed ready to put the past behind him as he changed up his look on Thursday.

Liam took to his Instagram Stories to share two posts of himself with his new hairstyle, and previously sharing a video of himself with his old dark hair.

In the first snap, Liam smouldered down the camera lens as he revealed his new look.

He also had a slit shaved into his eyebrows, which are still his natural dark brown hair colour.

He sported a grey hoodie as she stared directly down the camera lens in the photo.

The second post was a Boomerang video of Liam laying topless in bed.

He had the covers tucked up high as he pouted and looked up and down.

"Night guys thanks for all the love," Liam captioned the Boomerang.

Earlier this month Liam revealed that he is newly single after splitting from Maya, who had been with since 2018.

He confirmed they'd split on the podcast on Diary of a CEO, telling Steven Barlett: "I feel like more than anything at this point, I'm more disappointed in myself that I keep on hurting people.

"And I know what my pattern of things is with relationships at this point.

"I'm just not very good at them so I just need to work on myself before I put myself on to somebody else."

He went on: "That's where I got to in my last relationship. I just wasn't giving a very good version of me anymore, that I didn't appreciate and I didn't like being. I can honestly say I feel better out of it.

"I didn't feel good doing what I did but it had to happen. Just a corny way to say it was the best for us both."

He added: "I know I was the problem and I have to sort myself out. I already feel good. It's got my more concentrated and I hope she's happy."

Liam and Maya had moved in together during the first lockdown last year, but sparked split rumours when they weren't seen together for months.

His previous relationships include Naomi Campbell and Cheryl.

The popstar shares his son Bear, four, with Cheryl, who he was in a relationship with from 2016 to 2018.
