Reports on Sunday claimed the boyband were splitting up to pursue solo projects.

The rumours were reported widely across broadcast and print media, leaving fans frustrated when no official update was released on Monday.

The four-piece group finally responded to the news that they will be taking a break in 2016. Niall Horan took to Twitter, reassuring fans the group were not disbanding but had decided not to tour to promote their fifth album.


Louis Tomlinson later posted the following message:


One Direction have been together for five years since being formed on ITV's X Factor. The group lost its fifth member earlier this year when Zayn Malik decided to quit.
