Louis Tomlinson says he and his One Direction bandmates “feel like scumbags”.

The English-Irish boyband shot to international fame after appearing on UK TV talent show The X Factor in 2010.

One Direction is currently travelling the world on their Where We Are Tour and Louis can’t believe they’re performing sold out shows to fans in huge arenas, like Wembley Stadium in London.

“You look at the names of who’s played at Wembley and you almost feel like you’re not worthy of it,” he told British newspaper The Sun.

“We just feel like we’re just little scumbags. For people like us to be playing stadiums, it’s just the biggest thing in the world.”

The singer and his bandmates Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik and Liam Payne are currently working on their fourth studio album.

And Niall previously shared he is convinced their fans will be surprised by the transformed sound of their music.

“I think it’s going to be a little bit more edgy,” Niall revealed on America’s Today show. “But obviously we feel like we’ve got some really good songs and we are happy.”

Fellow bandmember Liam agreed with his bandmate’s sentiments and he also confirmed the entire group helped craft tunes on their new album.

“We’ve all taken a hand in the writing this time,” Liam explained on the TV programme. “And we’ve literally written almost every song.”

The band didn’t reveal exactly when their forthcoming offering will be released.

One Direction’s Where We Are Tour wraps up at the Sun Life Stadium in Miami on October 5.
