London (DM): Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson earn more money than their One Direction bandmates. The ‘Story of My Life’ quintet are estimated to be worth over £100 million altogether but as Liam and Louis write many of their songs - with writers typically earning nine per cent of each track’s royalties - it’s been suggested that they’re making more money than their bandmates, and Liam has admitted they’re working on even more material. Liam said: ‘’Louis and I have a little partnership going on.

We’ve been pretty keen to start writing straight away.’’
