One Direction's Liam Payne recovers from childhood kidney problem

One Direction star Liam Payne has revealed that he has recovered from a kidney problem that he has had since childhood.

The singer told his twitter followers that during a check-up he was shocked to discover that his failed kidney has started working again.

He wrote: "Just been for an ultrasound on my kidney turns out its fixed form when I was a baby.

"So now I have two :) #weirdnewsoftheday."

The good news was then retweeted 155,000 times and received 125,000 favourites from the One Direction's fanbase.

Liam has had to be teetotal due to kidney problems so hearing the good news his bandmate Niall Horan, tweeted: "Well if ur kidneys workin now... comin for a pint? Ahhaha I joke."

Discussing his kidney problems last year, Payne said: "From the age of zero to four I was always in hospital having tests done but they couldn't find out what was wrong.

"They discovered that one of my kidneys wasn't working properly and it had scarred.

"I had to have 32 injections in my arm in the morning and evening to try and make me better."
