One Direction reunion chances slashed for 2021 return and sixth album release
Liam Payne reveals 'there's more to come from One Direction'
One Direction broke countless fans’ hearts in 2015 when they announced that the band was going on an indefinite hiatus. In early March a statement was made that Zayn Malik was leaving the band after forming the band with the rest of his team in 2009. Zayn’s “stress” and desire to be a “normal 22-year-old” were the reasons he gave to press at the time, but the rest of the band were publicly excited to carry on with their world tour, and indeed to release their fifth album, Made in the A.M.
In November of the same year it was announced that the four remaining members of One Direction – Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, and Louis Tomlinson – were pausing their journey as well.
In place of new 1D music, the four artists went on to create strong solo careers, releasing albums and singles to placate their fans.
Since then, much speculation has been brought up on whether 1D will eventually reunite.
Many fans believed the ten-year anniversary in July on 2020 would see some sort of reunion announcement, but to no avail.

However things could be looking up, as leading bookmaker Ladbrokes believe 2021 is the year for Directioners to see the team getting back together again.
According to the betting agent: “One Direction will reunite by the end of 2021.”
The latest odds on a 1D reunion have now been released, and they are stronger than ever.
As of today, the chances of the team getting back together in 2021 are currently at 1/5 – the strongest they have been.

What’s more, there is also a 1/5 shot on One Direction releasing a sixth album in 2021.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes explained: “Little Things throughout the year have suggested 1D are keen to reunite, and if there’s One Thing that does look likely in 2021, it’s that the band will be getting back together.”
A reunion would be huge for the band, as the members have arguably never been more recognisable.
Last year saw Harry Styles dominate the charts with his second solo album, Fine Line, and his summer chart hit Watermelon Sugar.

Similarly, Niall and Louis held enormous virtual gigs over October and November, which were attended by hundreds of thousands of people.
So, if the band were to reform in the coming months, they may be even bigger than ever, and would even have some solo music in their repertoire to play.
Last month Liam teased a reunion once again by announcing he had been in contact with Louis.
Whilst speaking to Capital FM, Liam was asked by Ronan Kemp if he would “try to get the other 1D boys on a Zoom chat for a Christmas get together”.
Liam dropped the news: “I’d love that, honestly. I would. I was on the phone to Louis for a good hour yesterday.
“And yeah, you know, I think we just need a proper catch up. Actually it was nice to catch up for the ten-year anniversary.”
He also revealed how “difficult” he found working on his own music, and singing live by himself.
Liam added: “It’s tough out there, singing these songs on your own! Some of them are really difficult. There’s a reason there were four-slash-five people to overtake sometimes.”
