One Direction

One Direction: love them or hate them – you can't deny how bloody catchy their tunes are. Plus, the lads are very easy on the eye.

And there's some good news for fans, it seems that we could be bobbin' along to some new beats. 

Liam Payne was asked if there was a possibility if One Direction could reunite and he replied:“There is, definitely.” 

Now, before you start the fan girl screaming – Payne has indicated that it could be a while away yet.

So we could be growing beards by the time they take the stage.

“I think it would be nice if we could get back together, but we’ll see. In time. All in good time,” hinted Liam.

Teasing us at the BMI London Awards, the 25-year-old said he had recently met up with Louis Tomlinson.

But of course, he couldn't say what it was in relation to – SOBS.

“I’ve been in touch with Niall (Horan) and Harry (Styles) a little bit," added Payne.

It's hard to contain the excitement, as the lads have kept us waiting for three years and counting.

One Direction broke fans hearts around the world when they announced a hiatus in 2015. 

Though we'd love to see some new music from the group, we are remaining sceptical – each of the boys have done very well for themselves since their break.

But, a gal can dream.

If there's one thing we love than Pumpkin Spiced Lattes in autumn, it's getting a peek at all the fabulous, glossy perfection that is Autumn/Winter high-fashion campaigns.

We're totes emosh looking at the handbag or coat we'd literally kill our BFF to own. But because life is just that kind, we'll have to settle for A, dreaming about said purchase (or untimely passing of frenemy) or B, finding comfort in new photographs of Harry Styles – ahem, newly single Harry Styles – decked out in Gucci, cuddling farmyard animals.

And because we need a pick-me-up on this blustery Wednesday, we'll take option B – thank you, oh fashion Gods.

For their A/W19 men's tailoring campaign, Styles is featured in Italy, accompanied by a lamb, a goat and some piglets. 

The hair on Harry! The suits! Harry! Harry and a goat! You get the idea. But don't take our word for it. Look at the perfection:

Piers Morgan was caught gossiping on Good Morning Britain about Cheryl Cole and Liam Payne's break up. 

Little did he know, Cheryl was watching from her screen at home and was NOT pleased with his judgemental comments.

Earlier this month, the couple announced that they will be breaking up after two years together. Yes, we were heartbroken too. 

The couple made almost the same statement on Twitter saying that it was a very tough decision but ‘we still have so much love for each other as a family.’

They have a 15-month-old son named Bear and asked the public to respect his privacy as well.

However, not everyone is as heartbroken over the split as Cheryl and Liam.

Piers Morgan commented on the released Twitter statement during Good Morning Britain, poking fun at the situation.

He said, “If they love each other that much, why are they splitting up? They should be more honest and just say, ‘We hate each other’.” 

Cheryl  immediately reacted to Piers’ banter, ready for a throw down.

She texted Piers: “I’m so sorry you didn’t like my statement, Piers – perhaps I should have texted you the intimate details in chronological order as it unfolded,” according to Daily Mail. Get it, girl!

Reportedly, he immediately regretted his on-air comment, feeling guilty for gossiping about the couple’s break up.

Piers returned the text with a sincere apology and was quickly relieved when Cheryl said she was just joking with him.

She replied, ‘I hate those kinds of statements too, so cringeworthy. But we don’t hate each other. It just didn’t work out.’

The Girls Aloud singer and One Direction star still plan on staying on good terms, so that they can continue to co-parent their son.

The couple is committed to making sure their son is raised in a loving environment, and we're rooting for them along the way!

The X Factor is coming back to our screens very soon!

So, bring on the the sick Granny sob stories and the so-bad-they're-truly-appalling singers that the producers put through just to fill up the Daily Mail Showbiz comment sections. 

Excited?Us neither.

If you are an X Factor fan (all twelve of you that are left) then here's some hot off the press news about the judging panel. 

Proving that he's come full circle, 1D pop star Louis Tomlinson is said to have nabbed one of the much sought-after seats.

Joining him will be the highly exciting line-up of  Robbie Williams, his wife Ayda Field and of course, Mr Simon Cowell.

Now if that's not a reason to tune in, we don't know what is. 

According to The Mirror, ''Louis is very much a part of the X Factor family.''

“He’s a close friend of the show and would make a brilliant judge. Simon mentored One Direction and signed them to Syco Records. Simon hopes the deal will be done in the next few days.”

His addition will make the panel three men and one woman for the first time in the competition's 15-year history.

Social media's reaction to the news was as we'd expect…tumbleweed. 

However, there were a few people who had their say, tweeting, ''oh god what a FLOP'' and ''I have no interest in X Factor anymore, it's gone really down hill. But IF this is true than I will be watching only for Louis.'' 

So it seems that this might draw in some much-needed ratings.

The 15th series is getting underway with auditions starting on July 18 at Wembley Arena in London, so expect it all to come crashing back onto our screens in a matter of weeks.

Liam Payne and Cheryl have announced their separation after two and a half years together. The singers issued near-identical statements last night confirming their break-up.

They admitted that it wasn’t an easy decision to make, but they have decided to go their separate ways.

Sources have shared that the split is amicable and there is nobody else involved.

“Cheryl and I are sad to announce that we are going our separate ways. It's been a tough decision for us to make,” Liam wrote.

The former One Direction member and Cheryl share a son together. They said one-year-old Bear will always be their number one priority.

“We still have so much love for each other as a family. Bear is our world and we ask that you respect his privacy as we navigate our way through this together,” the Familiar singer added.

Cheryl also asked the public to respect their family during this difficult time.

It was reported that the couple were having relationship problems earlier this year, but Cheryl and Liam hit back and showed a united front at the BRIT awards in February.

Speaking about the rumours, former Girls Aloud member Cheryl said that they were ludicrous.

The Fight For This Love singer first met Liam when he auditioned for the X Factor at the age of 14. They were reunited again when he joined One Direction on the reality TV show in 2010.

They welcomed their son Bear in the March of 2017.

Just when you thought the 1D lads had completely turned theirs backs on the band that shot them to fame, it's been revealed that Harry Styles will produce a brand new CBS sitcom inspired by his early years of fame. 

According to People, the sitcom will be called Happy Together and will tell the story of young pop star Felix Mallard who moves in with a married couple played by Damon Wayans Jr. and Amber Stevens West.

The plot is based on an actual period in Harry's life, when he lived with producer Ben Winston and his wife Meredith shortly after finding fame on The X-Factor

The living arrangement was only meant to last a few weeks, as Harry was waiting for work to be finished on his own house, however, the young star ended up living in the couple's home for 20 months. 

Speaking to Rolling Stone, Ben spoke highly of Harry, admitting he was absolutely "gutted" when he eventually moved out. 

"Those 20 months were when they went from being on a reality show, X Factor, to being the biggest-selling artists in the world," he said. 

"That period of time, he was living with us in the most mundane suburban situation. No one ever found out, really. Even when we went out for a meal, it's such a sweet family neighbourhood, no one dreamed it was actually him. But he made our house a home. And when he moved out, we were gutted."

Ben Winston and Harry Styles 

It's believed Harry will play a huge role as executive producer of the new sitcom, with leading actress Amber telling People "he's going to care about the stories that we're telling."

Happy Together is set to premiere on CBS in the autumn.

The idea of being famous, living their lavish lifestyle, being adored by fans and being paid an eye-watering amount for posting a picture, is for many, THE DREAM.

However, before you take a shot at the limelight, you might want to consider that the reality of being a celebrity and the image we are sold of the life of the rich and famous doesn't live up to the real world. 

The former One Direction band member, Liam Payne reveals that fame hasn’t been smooth-sailing and about his life post-hiatus, in a very honest chat for Mental Health Awareness Week.

The dad-of-one to baby Bear, has opened up about the darker side of his success with KISS FM for their ‘Where’s Your Head At?’ campaign.

“When the band started our break I struggled with the idea of becoming famous again, it scared the living daylights out of me. Because the last time it nearly killed me, frankly,” said Liam very honestly. 

Speaking of how he managed the challenging situation, Liam added:

“So I had to figure out a way to make it work for me – rather than me work for it.”

The conversation soon turned to how the boy band member deals with his life being splashed all over media and it seems his sense of humour has become his coping mechanism.

“Laugh it off and remember it will become a story one day. And will seem funny.”

The 24-year-old dad has been a public figure for over a decade, after auditioning for the X-Factor at just 14-years-old, opening up about the ten years in the spotlight, Liam said:

“I love my life, it’s been fantastic but there have been a lot of struggles to get to this point. It’s about having good people around you. They don’t have to be a psychologist – just people who are friendly, someone to talk to.”

It looks like Niall Horan could be set to return to Irish shores after reports suggest the former One Direction star has bought a house on a 10-acre site just outside his home town of Mullingar.

According to The Sunday Times, the six-bedroom house was originally put on the market for €1.6 million in 2011, however the asking price was slashed to €565,000 last year.

The lavish home boasts six reception rooms, six bedrooms, a games room and an outdoor swimming pool (though we're not sure how much use he'll get out of that in the Irish weather).

It's not clear whether or not the 23-year-old will make Mullingar his permanent home once again, as he already has property in Los Angeles and London.

Meanwhile, the Slow Hands singer will kick off his first solo tour at Dublin's Olympia Theatre next week and his debut album is expected to drop later this year.

He recently announced the support acts for the shows which include Gavin James, Picture This and Dublin band, Wild Youth.

We all remember Louis and Zayn's infamous Twitter spat of 2015, right?

The former One Direction bandmates famously fell out after Zayn Malik abruptly quit the group in the middle of a world tour, and one of the greatest bromance of our time came to an untimely end. 

Digs were made, shade was thrown, and let's face it, things got pretty awkward for a while.

However, that's all in the past, and fans will be delighted to know that the feuding friends are finally “mates again.”

Speaking on Andy Cohen Live earlier this week, Louis Tomlinson opened up about where he and Zayn stand some two years after their headline-making fall out.

“We got back in touch with each other and kind of cleared the air and talked everything through. So we're mates again, I suppose,” he said.

“Like anything like that, it takes time. But it was nice that we had an opportunity to clear the air and be adults about it, I suppose.”

The admission comes after Louis revealed that his late mother, Johannah Deakin, urged him to reconnect with his old friend, insisting “life's too short.”

"My mum said, 'You've got to get back in contact with Zayn. Life's too f–king short. A mother's intuition is just f–king crazy. It always felt supernatural to me. My mum always knew what I was feeling and what I wanted,” he said told The Sun earlier last month.

Now that they have put all that bad blood behind them, we're hoping the guys can re-establish their tight bond, and perhaps even work together in the future.

So, One Direction may have gone their seperate ways, but unlike the classic boyband splits that came before them, there's no bad blood between the lads (well, for the most part). 

During a recent interview on Australian radio station Nova 100, Niall Horan gushed over fomer band mate, Louis Tomlinson, and even credited him with saving One Direction, insisting that they would have 'lost the plot' without him in the band.

"He's an unbelievable guy, a great singer and someone that, if, I'd say, we would have lost the plot along the way if we hadn't had Louis," he told the host.

"He was a very, very, very extremely vital member of One Direction. He's a great man."

His comments come after Louis spoke about how he struggled to find his place in the band.

Speaking to The Observer, Louis opened up about feeling insecure and walking in the shadows of the other band members.

"The others have always been… Like Niall, for example. He's the most lovely guy in the world. Happy-go-lucky Irish, no sense of arrogance. And he's fearless. There are times I've thought, 'I'd have a bit of that," he said.

"Zayn, back in the day. He could relate to me on a nerves level. Liam always had a good stage presence, same as Harry… Then there's me."

Louis recently sent fans inot a frenzy when he announced his new single Back to You, and he is also said to be working on putting togther a new girlband with former maganger, Simon Cowell.

At the height of One Direction's fame, Louis Tomlinson appeared to be positively brimming over with confidence, but during a recent interview with The Observer, the Doncaster-native suggests that he was from from content with his position in the band.

In perhaps one of his most candid interviews to date, the 25-year-old revealed that he harboured massive insecurities – something which was exacerbated by his tendency to compare himself to fellow band members.

Reflecting on their initial performances as a five-piece, Louis said: "You know I didn’t sing a single solo on the X Factor. A lot of people can take the p*ss out of that."

Admitting that he regularly questioned his place in the band, Louis recalls thinking: "What have I really done to contribute here? Sing a lower harmony that you can’t really hear in the mix?"

"The others have always been… Like Niall, for example. He’s the most lovely guy in the world," Louis said. "Happy-go-lucky Irish, no sense of arrogance. And he’s fearless. There are times I’ve thought: “I’d have a bit of that."

Opening up about the relationship he shared with Zayn, Louis explained that he sought comfort in him, saying: "He could relate to me on a nerves level."

"In the first year we were both the least confident. But Zayn has a fantastic voice and for him it was always about owning that."

Turning his attention to Liam and Harry, Louis paid tribute to their showmanship and their ability to work an audience – traits he envied.

"Liam always had a good stage presence, same as Harry, they’ve both got that ownership. Harry comes across very cool. Liam’s all about getting the crowd going, doing a bit of dancing.. and then there's me." he said.

By comparing himself to his bandmates, Louis admitted that he often felt out of his depth and presumed that the public simply saw him as "the kid wearing espadrilles, stood in the back."

And to think we always considered him one of the most confident members…

Following the death of Harry Styles' stepfather, Robin Twist, this week, the singer's former bandmates have reached out to their friend as he comes to terms with Robin's passing.

Taking to social media, Liam, Niall and Louis paid tribute to Robin and offered their condolences to Harry who acted as Robin's Best Man at his wedding to Harry's mother in 2013.

Sharing a beautiful shot of Harry's mother alongside her late husband, Liam wrote: "Harry my heart really goes out to you such an extremely sad day for us all who knew Robin."

"What a kind, gentle and beautiful soul, a true rarity to find in today's world. Sometimes they really do take the best of us far too soon," he concluded.

Niall chose to share the same image while paying tribute to a man who was clearly much loved by all those in the One Direction camp.

"Very sad to hear about the loss of Robin," Niall began in a post which has been liked more than 1,000,000 times since its upload yesterday.

"For those who had the pleasure of knowing Robin will know that he was the nicest , kindest, most generous , hilariously funny guy you'll have met," Niall continued. "He always had a smile on his face even when he was battling the terrible illness."

Turning his attention to his friend, Niall added: "Love ya H. Please give your mum and the rest of the family a massive hug from my family."

Louis, who shared a particularly close friendship with Harry during their days in One Direction, took to Twitter to offer his condolences.

"Devastated to hear the news about Robin. He was the such a lovely kind and funny guy. Sending all my love to the whole family. You'll be missed mate."

Robin died after losing his battle with cancer.
