One Direction Liam Payne: 'I definitely think 1D reunion will happen'

Despite the fact One Direction split up in 2015, the group’s fans have been yearning for more content from them ever since. Rumours of 1D reunions and comeback shows have been rife since then, with many fans being left disappointed – but that could all be about to change.

Liam Payne recently appeared at the Royal Albert Hall to perform at Tom Parker’s Inside My Head charity concert.

During the red carpet event, the 28-year-old was quizzed over any potential get-together for the rest of the band – and his answer was quite surprising.

He told the reporter: “I don’t know… I definitely think it will happen!

“But, I think everyone is just enjoying their solo work at the moment. Yeah… we’ll see.”

What do you think? Should One Direction get back together? Join the debate in the comments section here.

Liam went on to reveal he has been speaking with another member of the band about a reunion.

He continued: “I spoke to Louis [Tomlinson] the other day and we were just saying… It’s got to happen sooner than later! So, that’s my only update on that one.”

This is not the first time Liam has spoken candidly about bringing the band back together.

Earlier this year he told a live stream: “Most of us are in London. We’ve been trying to arrange the first group FaceTime with the boys at the moment.”

Liam went on: “I can’t say too much. Louis told me off for revealing a bit of our plans the other day, so you’re going to have the group chat telling me off.”

He then addressed Swedish DJ Alesso, who was on the stream with him, saying: “You can come in and fill in for Zayn [Malik] and join the band.”

The Strip That Down singer later confessed he had recently spoken to Harry Styles.

He explained: “I did speak to Harry, and it was really lovely. He called me because he has a sixth sense for if I’m struggling or if one of us is in trouble I feel like.”

Liam added: “I spoke to him and it was a really lovely catch-up actually, and I’ve got a lot of love for the man. He’s great, he’s really, really great.”

In June, the singer explained how he would “love” for the band to physically get together.

He revealed: “I’d love for us to get in a room at some point. I think it would be the best thing.

“We’ve all said it outside but we’ve just not said it to each other. There’s a song in there somewhere. Somebody write that down!”

The odds are certainly in One Direction‘s favour.

Leading bookmaker Ladbrokes have recently given the band a staggering 1/2 odds on getting back together this year.

But, as September comes to an end, the band have just three months to make these odds a reality.
