Hello, this is your resident One Direction correspondent speaking. The Brit wonder made a splash at last night’s American Music Awards with a double win. Not only did they give a pretty brill performance of Night Changes, they also won three whole awards – for Artist of the Year, Favorite Pop/Rock band and Favorite Pop/Rock Album. Their appearance in full force and good health served to quash some rumours from earlier in the week, when Zayn Malik reportedly went down with a stomach flu.

The rumours of course, were that his illness was less flu-like and more... substance related. Basically, people were saying that 21-year-old Malik was on drugs. All those rumours (or most of them anyway) were quashed last night. Not only did he appear to be in good health, if a little on the quiet side during interviews, Malik also performed two solos on Night Changes. And yes, his voice sounded just fine throughout.

I promise, you won’t want those
