However, the 25-year-old singer recently revealed that he felt forgettable during the early days of the group especially.
But his bandmate Niall Horan says otherwise.
“He knows that none of us ever thought that or think that. He’s an unbelievable guy, a great singer and someone that if, I’d say, we would have lost the plot along the way if we hadn’t had Louis,” Niall told Nova 100 radio show (via Daily Mail). “He was a very, very, very, extremely vital member of One Direction. He’s a great man.”
