Liam Payne, part of X Factor group One Direction, has been left in doubt to perform on this weekend’s live show after hurting his ankle.

Liam was backstage during the Tinie Tempah show in London on Wednesday night when he tripped over an amp resulting in a painful ankle injury.

An X Factor spokesperson confirmed that Liam’s fitness will be assessed by show doctors during rehearsals today [Thursday] at the Covent Garden studios, but said it will be ‘touch and go’ as to whether he will be fit enough to perform on Saturday.

Liam tweeted this morning: “What a doofus! Fell over on stage in front of tinie temphah…so uncool. Lol.”

The One Direction singer was at the concert along with his fellow X Factor finalists Harry Styles, Niall Horan and Cher Lloyd.
