Generous Zayn bought a house on the outskirts of the city for his family after vowing he’d look after them when the 1D cash started rolling in.

He also pays Trisha a wage after begging her to give up her job as a dinner lady at a local school.

They have lived in the £300,000 detached four bed home for six years.

It is a far cry from one of the homes where he grew up - a modest terraced place in the city worth just £50,000.
