Heat's Hottest Hunks of 2013
Number Eight: Zayn Malik

One Direction's Zayn Malik has splashed out a staggering £2.2m on his first home in north London.

According to the Sun, the 19-year-old has become the latest member of the boyband to get on the property ladder after purchasing a six-bedroom home in upmarket Hyver Hill.

A source close to the teen heartthrob told the paper: "Zayn is trying to be smart with his money by putting it into bricks and mortar.

"He fell in love with the house. The deciding factor was the huge indoor swimming pool. He's already planning some pool parties for when the band are back in town."

The band, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik and Liam Payne, have enjoyed worldwide success since they found fame on the X Factor in 2010.

As well as their hits What Makes You Beautiful and One Thing, they also made Billboard history when their debut album, Up All Night, became the first debut album by a British band to go straight in at No 1.

The Sun claims that Malik has even more to celebrate after becoming the fans favourite on the band's tour of the United States.

The paper reports that deafening screams drowned out their weekend Vegas gig whenever he was in the spotlight.
