Liam Payne has fans extremely worried after he posted THIS selfie

Everyone’s freaking out over this selfie but not in a good way.

Since the hiatus has started we’ve been frequently seeing what Harry, Niall and Louis are up. But as for Liam? Well, we know he’s loved up with Chezza and that’s about it TBH.

Liam FINALLY returned to the world of social media over the weekend but fans didn’t quite react the way they normally do…

In the Instagram photo captioned “Time for gym #hashtag” Liam appears to be rocking a rather ~gaunt~ facial expression, making fans worried that our bae is losing too much weight when compared to THIS selfie taken in December 2014:

Caring Directioners immediately took to Twitter in an ~attempt~ to get through to Liam:

This isn't the first time Liam's body weight has caught the attention of the fandom. A few months ago THIS shirtless selfie was causing a drama in the Twitterverse:

While in 2015, Liam opened up about his body image insecurities to Attitude explaining: “There was a time a while back when I was actually doing very well in polls for the sexiest man. But then I started drinking a lot and I began to get a bit tubbier and I wasn’t popular in those polls any more. In fact, because of that I was getting fat jibes all the time, which hurt me.”

Of course we’re all about Liam feeling and looking healthy, but we want to make sure bae is looking after himself.
