Louis Tomlinson has vowed to never go on BBC Breakfast ever again following an interview on Monday morning.

Louis Tomlinson appeared on BBC Breakfast to discuss his debut solo album Walls but was left angry due to the line of questioning from presenters Dan Walker and Louise Minchin.

The former One Direction star took umbrage with questions on how he has dealt with the grief that came following the deaths of his mother and sister in recent years.

The awkward interview, which also focused on his history with One Direction and his rumoured feud with ex-bandmate Zayn Malik, resulted in Tomlinson vowing to boycott the show in future.

Walker, one of the hosts of the programme, responded to the singer and asked why Tomlinson was so upset by the interview.

"I was upset that you continued to ask me about my grief," Tomlinson replied. "It goes without saying how hard it is to lose both people so close to me. The least I ask is that you respect my decision of not wanting to be asked in interviews about something so painfull. [sic].

"I’m lucky enough to have a creative outlet for me to talk about grief this doesn’t however give you the right to talk about it for gossip purposes."

A BBC spokesperson defended the interview, saying: "We wanted to cover all aspects of Louis' life that have influenced his new album and feel the questioning was fair."
