For the second time in the space of a week, Zayn Malik has cancelled a scheduled media appearance, this time his interview on BBC Radio 1 with Greg James that was intended to be conducted on Monday afternoon (February 1st).

Hundreds of fans waiting outside Radio 1’s London offices for a glimpse of their hero were left disappointed, as Zayn reportedly called off the interview just 45 minutes before going live on air. Instead, DJ Greg James broadcast a tribute segment to Sir Terry Wogan, who passed away at the weekend.

“Unfortunately there was a scheduling conflict as Zayn is currently in the studio completing his album,” the official statement said according to the Mirror, while a source added: “It's bad luck but he's still in the studio working on his album.”

It means that Malik is yet to make a full TV or radio appearance since he left One Direction last March, though he has given a handful of newspaper and magazine interviews. He recently admitted that he had planned on leaving One Direction eventually pretty much from the start of their career, and said that he’s frustrated because his former colleagues rarely text him or return his calls anymore.

Zayn’s debut solo single ‘Pillowtalk’ was released last week, and midweek reports indicate that it’s hurtling for a Number 1 debut week with consummate ease, racking up 23,000 more sales than ‘Fast Car’ by Jonas Blue so far.
