FORMER-One Direction star Liam Payne was rushed to hospital during a luxurious getaway to Italy with his girlfriend.
The singer, 30, was celebrating his one-year anniversary with Kate Cassidy in Lake Como when he was struck with agonising kidney pain.
Judging by the clues provided in Kate's photos, they stayed in one of the private villas in the luxurious Mandarin Oriental Lake Como.
The prices range between 4,500 euros to an eye-watering 12,000 euros per night for guests to enjoy a slice of the Italian high life.
The couple had been enjoying the sunshine and the stunning views in Northern Italy before Liam was taken ill.
According to the five-star hotel's website, the beautiful building is "Immersed in a centuries-old botanical park on the eastern shore of Lake Como".

While there were no photos of Liam, it looked as though the pair had a wonderful time before Liam's illness.
In one snap she wore a figure-hugging soft grey dress and added a pair of black rectangular shades.
In her caption, she also didn't mention Liam, but simply wrote: "Lake Como" with the heart-hand emoji.
Concerned fans begged Kate to share details on Liam's health, with one writing: "How’s Liam?! Pls tell us Kate,we are worried."
"is Liam ok????" another quizzed, while a third wrote: "How is Liam Payne we are all very worried about him".
However, some followers criticised her for uploading the photos to social media while her boyfriend is so unwell.
"She's too busy posting s*** online to care, clearly," one fumed, while another added:"All she cares about is $$ and fame."
She didn't provide any details about Liam's health.
Doctors are investigating the recurring problem, which led to him cancelling a tour last month.
The ex-One Direction was rushed to A&E in an ambulance before being checked into a hospital ward for emergency treatment, where he is set to stay for several days.
The latest scare comes just weeks after he told fans he had been in hospital with a serious kidney infection, forcing him to cancel his first solo tour.
A source said: “Liam is in a bad way but he’s in the best place he can be and finally doctors will be able to get to the bottom of what is going on.
“Naturally he is gutted that his and Kate’s trip to Lake Como has been ruined but at least she was there to help him when he fell ill.
“Doctors have warned him not to expect to be signed off to go home for at least another six days.
“They want to do every test possible to understand the issue fully but they now suspect that there has been an underlying issue for a while that has been getting worse.”
Liam, pictured with Kate in Italy the day before he was rushed to hospital, revealed earlier this year how he was almost six months sober after boozing heavily in One Direction.
He has spent the majority of the year working on his second album.
But last month he was forced to postpone a tour of South America just days before he was due to take the stage.
In a video to fans he said: “Over the past week I’ve been in hospital with a serious kidney infection, it’s something I wouldn’t wish on anyone, and doctors’ orders are that I now need to rest and recover.
