Liam Payne faces driving ban after being caught speeding 43mph in 30 zone in his £35k Ford Ranger | The Sun

LIAM Payne is facing a driving ban after he was caught speeding behind the wheel of his £35,000 pick-up truck.

The One Direction star, 30, was allegedly doing 43mph in a 30mph zone in west London when an automatic camera clocked his speed.

He is believed to have been in his black Ford Ranger Wildtrak Deranged Edition at the time of the incident on the Hammersmith flyover in February.

Now court papers reveal he faces a possible six-month road ban when he is sentenced next week, reports The Evening Standard.

According to the court listing he was heading eastbound on the A40 on February 24 when the incident happened.

Writing to Lavender Hill magistrates court, Payne said: “I did not realise the speed limit and apologise for speeding.”

He agreed to pay any fined imposed within 14 days.

A court staffer adjourned the case last month until a hearing on October 9 “to consider disqualification from driving”.

Liam – worth an estimated £47 million – has a huge collection of sports cars including a Lamborghini Aventador worth around £270,000 and a Cadillac Escalade worth £145,000.

He also admitted that he bought himself one of the Ford Anglia’s used in the Harry Potter movies as a massive fan of the series.

In an interview on BBC Radio 1, he said: “I bought the Harry Potter car and I put it in my garden. You know the blue car, the flying one? I bought one because I’m a bit of a geek.”

The singer, who celebrated his 30th birthday last week, was recently forced to cancel his upcoming tour after being rushed to hospital with a kidney infection. 

He told fans he has been told by medics to "rest and recover" – meaning he will not perform his gig dates in South America.

In a heartfelt video message, downcast Liam apologised to fans – and promised to put on an "even bigger and better show" in future.

Liam is thought to be recovering in his mansion in Buckinghamshire with girlfriend Kate Cassidy, 24.
