One Direction's Liam catches shark on US fishing trip

Liam Payne got a 'reel' shock during a fishing trip with the band in California.

One Direction were on a boat trip, taking a break from their US tour when Liam felt a bite on his fishing line. It was a shark!

He said, "It was only my second time ever fishing and we had such great fun."

"We went fishing for half an hour and there was nothing at all."

"Then I pulled out a baby tiger shark."

The tiger shark is often described as the dustbin of the sea, because they'll eat anything in their path.

Luckily because this one was just a baby there was no danger to Liam and the band.
