One Direction heartthrob Liam Payne is pleading with obsessive fans to lose his address after it was accidentally posted online.

Friends of The Story of My Life hitmaker recently shared photos of his house on, and sharp-eyed fans, who used the shots to track down his address, have started hanging out outside.

In a new tweet, the 20 year old has politely asked fans to refrain from camping outside his house to allow him some privacy during his precious time off.

He wrote, "I know my friends have tweeted a lot of pictures of my house the past few days but can people please stop coming and waiting outside.

"I'd just like to be able to walk outside as everyone does and enjoy time with my friends, not feel bad for not wanting to take a picture."

The gracious Payne added, "Sorry if I've been rude to anyone but I've come to realise if I take one picture more people keep coming everyday. hope everyone's good."
