Reports are circulating in the media that Zayn Malik, from boy band One Direction, has splashed his cash on a 6-bedroomed, £2m+ pad with an indoor swimming pool in Hyver Hill, North London.
A quick search on Zoopla and we stumble upon this property for sale that could fit the bill: a 6 bedroom detached house for sale at £2,495,000. Reports in the media state he paid £2.2m, so if this is the property it looks like he’s found a motivated seller or got someone negotiating hard for him…Simon Cowell perhaps?

Kent-based children’s hospice chYps is to receive a £10,000 donation thanks to the rapping efforts of a seven-year-old boy who lost his younger brother to a rare form of cancer.
Scores of contestants battled it out in the online competition in which Dartford-based Charlie Saunders and his father Tony Saunders – rapping as “Charlie Chyps and Divvy Dad” – won the contest with more than 6,000 public votes. They rapped in memory of Oscar Saunders who was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma and passed away last year shortly before his third birthday.
The FindaProperty.com competition was held in conjunction with a recent advertising campaign in which a number of characters rapped about their property needs.
The contest was closely fought, with Leeds-based 11-year-old Dylan Broadbent – rapping as “Dylz” – in a second place. He was representing The Christie Charity which funds projects at Manchester’s specialist cancer hospital The Christie Foundation Trust.
Charlie entered the competition to raise funds and awareness for chYps, the Kent-based children’s’ hospice that looked after his younger brother Oscar during his battle with cancer. By providing homecare, chYps supported the Saunders and allowed them to spend us much time as possible away from hospitals while Oscar was gravely ill. The £10,000 prize is being donated to support chYps’ respite service.
“Losing Oscar was an incredibly traumatic experience, but without chYps it would have been a hell of a lot more traumatic,” Tony Saunders told FindaProperty.com.
“I kept saying to Charlie, if we get to number one we’re really lucky, but at least we’re doing it for the right reasons.
“If it wasn’t for chyps and the fact they provided treatment at home, we would have been at the hospital non-stop for 18 months. But instead I was still able to run my business and pay the mortgage, Charlie was still able to have a life and go to school.”
Tracie Dempster, Head of Care at chYps said the charity was thrilled to be benefitting from the competition.
“Winning this £10,000 is absolutely amazing and will support the chYps service in so many ways. Much of our service is funded through charitable donations and core services that each family needs, such as specialist nurses that deliver cancer support and chemotherapy rely heavily on monies from the public.
“This £10,000 will help fund our chYps respite service, which is offered to all families. Just imagine what a difference a trip to the seaside could have on a child at the end of their life with competent staff to look after the child for the whole day. We are so thrilled to have won the money and are so grateful to Tony and Charlie for winning it for us in memory of Oscar.”
