When will One Direction come back

ONE Direction fans are eager for the band to get back together... but will they?

Since the boys - Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik all went their separate ways, they've forged successful solo careers, but what have they been up to? And will they reunite?

Are One Direction getting back together?

The 1D boys are currently on a hiatus that began in January 2016, allowing all members to pursue other projects.

Zayn left the band in 2015, leaving Harry, Louis, Liam and Niall to hold the fort.

Despite the boys finding success on their own, their former boss, Simon Cowell, said that he believes they will once again become a chart powerhouse and “be bigger than ever”.

In April 2018 Liam hinted that the band could be getting back together when he discussed them planning a comeback show.

Speaking to German press he said: "We've all spoken about it, the dream for this most fantastic show....I think it will happen at some point."

And in June Liam revealed that the mega famous group are still on course for a comeback.

Though he refused to be pinned down on a date, the 24-year-old told the Daily Star: "My album comes out at the end of the year and then I'm going on tour in 2019.

He added: "It's amazing that we're doing our own thing and then, hopefully one day soon, we get back together and have another great time of it, who knows?"

What have the 1D members been doing since they went on a hiatus?

Zayn was the first to forge a solo career, hitting No1 in the UK charts with Pillow Talk in January 2016.

Harry then reached No1 with Sign Of The Times in May 2017, and more recently, Liam’s Strip That Down went gold in the UK and Niall’s Slow Hands has proven a big hit, especially in the US.

Harry has also had box office success, starring in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk, and Liam has been busy making babies -  welcoming a son with Cheryl Cole.

Louis has also been enjoying solo chart success with songs Just Hold On and Back To You.

What are One Direction's biggest songs and albums?
