Chris Martin has given his first interview since his 'conscious uncoupling' from wife, Gwyneth Paltrow.
The Coldplay star sat down for a chat with Radio 1's Zane Lowe ahead of the release his band's new album Ghost Stories on May 19, where he addressed his private life and love of One Direction.
In a trailer for his tell-all interview - which is set to air on Monday, April 28 - Martin can be seen hinting at problems in his personal life and adds: "Everyone in their live goes through their challenges - whether it's love or money or kids or illness."
He also heaps praise on Harry Styles and Co, proving that he is an unlikely Directioner.
The 37-year old frontman says of 1D: "I'm saying One Direction are brilliant and I'm not kidding."
Chris is the latest A-List name who Zane has bagged for an interview, following the likes of Kanye West and Eminem, who both recently joined the DJ in his studio.
