One Direction and Zayn Malik go head-to-head at Teen Choice Awards

One Direction will face off against ex bandmate Zayne Malik at this years Teen Choice Awards.

Both One Direction and Zayn – who quit the hugely successful band in March this year – have been nominated for Fashion Choice Male Hottie, which will force fans to chose between the two – something that has caused some frustration.

‘You have got to be kidding me! My heart aches,’ one upset fan wrote, while another tweeted: ‘Just when you thought the 1D fandom drama is calming down. Teen Choice awards has just started world war three.’

There is no word yet on whether the band or Zayn will be making an appearance at the event, which is set to take play on August 16 in Los Angeles.

One Direction have received three nominations in total, including Choice Music Group: Male and for their song Steal My Girl.
