What happens when you combine a deep love for the Harry Potter franchise and more money than you know what to do with? Let's ask One Direction member Liam Payne, who confessed a rather extravagant recent purchase. "I bought the Harry Potter car and I put it in my garden," he tells BBC Radio 1 during an  interview. "You know the blue car, the flying car? I bought one because I'm a bit of a geek." A bit, yes.

Maybe more than a bit, actually, as Payne also threw himself a lavish Harry Potter-themed birthday party this year to  celebrate turning 22. And he copped to taking an online Sorting Hat quiz that put him in Gryffindor, but honestly who hasn't done that?
