One Direction’s very own Liam Payne accepted The Sons & Daughters award, to recognize the talent that has come out of the town Wolverhampton. Liam was unable to be there yesterday due to a work commitment in New Zealand, but his proud parents represented him at the ceremony.
He said: ‘I just wanted to say a massive thank you for this. My band has picked up a lot of awards over the past few years, but for me, this is the one I’m definitely most grateful for. Wolverhampton’s my home and it always will be. I want to say a massive thank-you to all those people years ago who gave me the opportunities that I needed to get me where I am today, and I wanted to say a massive thank-you to the people that nominated me for this. It’s definitely the most important award. It’s going to take pride on my shelf.’
