Former One Direction member Zayn Malik apparently came down with a case of cold feet! The singer just cancelled what was supposed to be his first television appearance as a solo artist.
The 23-year-old was scheduled to perform on Friday's The Graham Norton Show — which would actually film in advance Thursday evening — but has reportedly bailed at the last minute!

Zayn's people apparently told producers they had a scheduling conflict, but that doesn't seem likely given the timing.
A source close to the situation explained:
"They have put it down to scheduling issues but this is an appearance that has been in the diary for a while now. But it will spark talk of something being wrong behind the scenes. This appearance is a big deal to both Zayn and his fans."
Oh, we're DEFINITELY wondering if something else is going on, especially since the former boy bander is releasing his single on Friday!
The source went on to dish:
"There's still a chance he could make it happen - but the show are now making alternative plans."
Luckily, there are plenty of HUGE stars stopping by Friday's show that will help divert attention — like Catherine Zeta-Jones, Will Smith, and Ryan Reynolds!
Maybe Zayn got scared of all the big name talent, or perhaps he's just too emotional over 1D's History video?
Either way, the singer will be missed and we'll just have to dig deep to find a way to enjoy the show without him. Oh right, Catherine, Will, and Ryan are all there. LOLz!
Why do YOU think Zayn canceled on the talk show?!
