“Harry is aware he was the most popular member of the band but is determined not to end up in a Robbie Williams-Gary Barlow situation or play second fiddle to Zayn. Zayn beat Harry out of the traps by getting his solo material out first but Harry is confident playing the long game will pay off,” a source said.

“Unlike Zayn, Harry doesn’t want to stray too far and alienate the 1D fan base - but he does want to make his own mark. Jamie knows how to write a song that suits Harry’s voice.”

Malik quit One Direction in March, nine months before they went on hiatus and recently had a worldwide number one with his debut solo single Pillowtalk.
