Liam Payne has shared a rather embarrassing newspaper mistake, which confuses a photo of David Beckham for the One Direction star.
The unknown paper makes the rather embarrassing gaffe in an article about Liam’s bandmate, Harry Styles’, star-studded 21st birthday party, and even goes so far as to say that the 21-year-old looks A LOT like Beckham in the snap.
Erm, there might be a reason for that, guys….
Captioning a picture of 39-year-old Beckham, Liam’s girlfriend Sophia Smith, and old pal Andy Samuels, the mysterious publication wrote: “Wow, Liam Payne really is morphing into David Beckham…
“Liam, 21, looks uncannily like David, 39, in this photo with his best mate, Andy Samuels, and his girlfriend, Sophia Smith.
“Liam’s lookalike, David, partied at the bash with Harry’s pals.”
This is awkward on SO MANY LEVELS.
Liam, who is a huge fan of the famous footballer, was understandably chuffed by the error, writing on Twitter: “Wow huge compliment but in not sure I was in this snap? lol”

We’re not convinced either, babes, but you’re still just as hot as Beckham – if not hotter.
Liam and David weren’t the only A-Listers in attendance at Harry’s lavish party, with Louis Tomlinson, Cara Delevingne, Kendall Jenner, Chris Martin and Jennifer Lawrence also having a whale of a time in the photo booth and on karaoke.
It is thought that the youngest member of 1D splashed a whopping £200,000 on the fancy do, with some of that budget going towards cupcakes with the letter ‘H’ on them, and a rumoured 21 cakes to depict each year of the singer’s life.
family man Harry reportedly face-timed his mum as he blew out his birthday candles, because apparently the curly haired one isn’t ruddy adorable enough and couldn’t resist another opportunity to melt our hearts.
