Zayn Malik's never kept it a secret that he's a smoker and showing off his bad boy credentials, the One Direction singer was spotted stepping out for a smoke earlier this week after performing at the Royal Variety Show.

Popping outside, he was noticeably lacking our favourite woodland creature (no, not Louis Tomlinson) and instead of the badger we've got used to seeing riding around on his head, Zayn was showing off his newly dyed, all black hair.

Having suited things up for old Queenie Pie, he was back in his casual clothes, opting for a knit and what we can only describe as a denim studded waistcoat. Funnily enough it's exactly the type of thing we could see girlfriend Perrie Edwards wearing.

Maybe they're sharing wardrobes these days. It's probably lucky they have similar styles or he could've easily ended up accidentally going out in a leopard print bralet the next time their washing got mixed up.

Whipping out a cheeky grin, he was also showing off those arm tatts, which let's be honest, probably add to this badass vibe he's got going on.
