The stepdad of Doncaster One Direction star Louis Tomlinson has taken to Twitter to deny taking a naked ‘selfie’ of himself and the singer’s mum.
Dan Deakin, who is engaged to the boy band star’s mum Johannah Poulston, shared a family photo on the social networking site - but was blasted by 1D fans who thought the couple were sharing saucy snaps online, complaining that they were naked in the pic.
The picture, which shows him topless, sparked comments from Directioners who wrote: “im uncomf put some clothes on,” while another upset follower commented: “there are kids on twitter.”
Captioning the picture “Remember this @JohannahDarling xx”, he later had to return to Twitter to reassure fans the picture was nothing more than a harmless holiday photo.
He wrote: “It’s a selfie and Jay’s wearing a shirt. Jeez. I was referring back to our first family holiday where it was taken a couple of years ago.”
Dan and Johannah - who has Louis, 22, and four other children from past relationships - got engaged last March and welcomed their twins Ernest and Doris in February.
