What is left of British Boy Band, One Direction, are going to take a break next year 2016.
The group are going their separate ways in March after the release of their fifth studio album.
According to a report in The Sun, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan want to concentrate on solo projects, although there’s been no confirmation from One Direction.
The break was planned “with or without Zayn” Malik, who left 1D in March.
When asked about the news by Newsbeat, the band’s PR team said “no comment”.
In June the band were forced to deny speculation that they were taking a break next year.
A source told The Sun: “The guys have been together for five years, which is an incredible run for any boy band.
“They fully deserve to have at least a year to work on their own projects.
“There is absolutely no bad blood between them and they are all 100% behind the decision.
“It is definitely not a split and they fully intend to get back together at some time in the future.”
There’ll be no tour for the band’s fifth album and their last full concert will be at Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena on 31 October at the moment.
The group will have a break over Christmas before getting back together to finish promoting their new album in February.
