Now that One Direction's new single Story of My Life is set to be released in a matter of HOURS, it only makes sense that the lads would be doing some cheeky promotion to make sure it goes to number one in at least turdy-seven countries.

But seeing as the boys have decided to divide and conquer pretty much every radio station in the world to do that, we've been getting treated to some individual 1D interviews - something we've never really appreciated until we heard Zayn Malik say more than 10 words at a time. HOOORAY.

Yep, suddenly our Bradford Bad Boi feels have gone through the ruddy roof, and all because he's been a bit lovely on The Voice Denmark and revealed more than we ever thought possible. HE'S LIKE A NEW MAN.

Besides spilling the beans that new Midnight Memories song You & I has a 'What Makes You Beautiful vibe', el Maliko also chatted about what he does when he has time off and *slammed* the rumours that he's secretly a robot. Incredible. 

He admitted: "I'm quite domestic, I like to just stay at home. I do see little rumours on Twitter and stuff about fans thinking I'm a robot and I'm not real and I don't really exist because I don't really go anywhere - but that's because I'm quite boring when I have time off.

"I like to just relax and do normal things, chill out with my family. Mainly doing a lot of artwok, stuff like that. I'm just a normal 20 year old, I think. I'm just having fun."

So. Many. Words. We are honestly in shock right about now. Has Perrie even heard him speak this much before? We're absolutely gobsmacked - and now fancy about 20 times more. GAH, CRUEL WORLD. 

Well then, what do you make of el Maliko's little speech? Are you trying to stop laughing about the robot thing? Because it's made us laugh all ruddy day. Comments please...
