One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson says he loves watching Bargain Hunt as he opened up about his daily routine.
The Yorkshire-born singer, 30, is worth millions, but says he enjoys the ‘simple things in life’ – which include tuning into the BBC antiques show.
The father-of-one shot to fame with the record-breaking boy band on The X Factor in 2010 and has enjoyed the trappings of fame.
However, when speaking about what he gets up to in a day, Louis admitted he ‘rated’ Bargain Hunt, adding: “I’m very good at just watching s*** TV all day.
“But if I’m trying to be productive I like to inspire myself by watching interviews with other artists I admire, like Arctic Monkeys or Liam Gallagher. It’s dead interesting hearing the way they think.”
He continued: “For lunch, I love a tuna sandwich with salad cream — not mayo — and some prawn cocktail crisps on the side. I’m a s*** cook.
“I’ve survived on microwave meals for years, but I do feel sorry for my son — he must be sick to death of cheesy pasta,’ reports The Sunday Times.
The singer shares Freddie with his ex Briana Jungwirth, who lives in L.A with the six-year-old.
Revealing that being a father ‘changed him’, Louis recalled his son joining him on stage after his L.A gig when he started playing the drums.
Admitting fatherhood had its challenges, the singer stressed how rewarding his role as a dad was.

In the Life in the Day column, Louis spoke about his upcoming album, titled “Faith in the Future,” which is released on November 11.
The star joins the likes of former bandmate Harry Styles in going solo after One Direction announced an indefinite hiatus in 2016.
Speaking about performing without the support of the group, Louis wrote: “There’s a different sort of pressure being a solo artist, and the lows are lower on your own.”
However ahead of launching his new album, the star said he’d done a “f***ing good job” of being a solo artist.
The former boyband member performed at sold-out arenas, won countless awards, and sold millions of albums during his time in 1D.
When asked how he measured his success today as a solo artist, Louis told Euphoria Magazine : “It’s a difficult question.
“It’s very easy to be over-analytical in my job about a million different things.
“If I leave the stage after a show and I feel like 90% of the people in there have had a good night, then I’ve done a f***ing good job.”
