Liam Payne is helping the BBC’s education efforts – by sharing the meaning behind his song lyrics.

The former One Direction star, 26, will appear on BBC Bitesize Daily Secondary.

Payne, who shares three-year-old son Bear with ex-partner Cheryl, said: “As a dad I know how tough it is keeping kids engaged while at home.

“Anything I can do to help other parents with their kids’ learning feels important, now more than ever.

“I’m looking forward to everyone hearing the reading and hope those learning at home will enjoy it.”

Payne will share the inspiration behind Midnight, his recent single with Alesso, and read an extract from the lyrics.

Tasks for students will be set following a studio discussion.

Mabel, Lauv, Becky Hill, GRACEY, Sea Girls and Pixie Lott are also taking part in The Big Song this week, discussing their lyrics.

Payne will appear on BBC Bitesize Daily Secondary (13-14 years) on Thursday and Friday – on BBC iPlayer and BBC Red Button as part of BBC Bitesize’s Creativity Week.
