One Direction's Louis Tomlinson is partially deaf in one ear after the band's tour.

Louis had a headache after the band's Liverpool shows for three days and though he has not officially been diagnosed with tinitus, it is thought that is what ails him.

Louis told The Mirror, "I am going slightly deaf in my right ear. It's tinnitus...something like that. All our fans are always very loud, especially Scousers."

Tinitus can lead to deafness if not properly treated but a source close to One Direction told The Mirror that, "They are only young and still developing, so management insist they wear hi-tech earpieces and filters to reduce the volume of the screaming and the music. When watching them, even the band's security team and family have to wear earplugs, too"

The source went on to say, "When Louis made his comments he had really bad earache. Thankfully, this has now cleared up but he knows to be careful in future."
