Sorry, Zayn Malik fans - it doesn't look like you'll be hearing the songs from 'Mind of Mine' played live and in person anytime soon.

The former boyband star reportedly 'dreads' the idea of touring and is still struggling majorly with anxiety around playing live.

The Daily Star report that he is stil battling panic attacks, four months after he cancelled what was scheduled to be his first live gig in London, at the Capital Summertime Ball in Hyde Park.

They quote a source as saying: "Zayn is still really struggling with his anxiety. The thought of going on a full world tour fills him with dread.

“Even a one-off TV appearance is unlikely at the moment. Zayn has been working hard to get control of his fears and obviously wants to perform live. But at the same time he doesn’t want to let anyone down by announcing dates and then cancelling them.

“He’s feeling a lot of pressure to perform and feels much more comfortable in the studio.”

They also claim that 'music insiders' reckon he could lose out on up to £100 million over the course of his career by not touring or playing live.

To date, the only musical promotional appearance he has made for 'Mind of Mine' have been a couple on Jimmy Fallon's TV show.
