One Direction fans are devastated after news spread last night that One Direction will reportedly go on an extended break for at least 12 months.
The band now consists of Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan.
The boys are set to perform their last live concert on October 31 at Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield before they go on an extended break in March next year.
Since finding fame on The X Factor, One Direction have been performing together for five years. They are said to have had a top secret meeting in London last weekend where they decided to split.
According to the Sun newspaper, there has been no fall out between the boys and they still intend to release further material.
The band’s five year contract with Simon Cowell’s label Syco ends next year but ONe D fans had hoped it would just be renewed.
