America’s Got Talent judge Simon Cowell has dropped a huge bombshell: Zayn Malik could 100% return to One Direction.
Since the 57-year-old television personality helped the British boyband to get to the top of the music industry, it’s only natural that he’d know information like this, and he believes that the whole group, which is currently on hiatus, can be re-united again very soon.
He explained: “You know, it’s fun being out there on your own but what I hope is going to happen is that they remember now how much fun it was being in a group.”
There are currently no concrete plans or no concrete evidence that the original band members will re-unite.
But Simon would support the group if they decided to reunite as One Direction.
He told The Sun newspaper: “I always believe that you don’t make rules, you break the rules. So there’s nothing to stop them, if they want to, getting together for a tour, for an album.
“I made it absolutely clear, obviously, ‘We’re in’.”
This piece of news comes a little after Niall Horan admitted it would be “weird” if One Direction were to reunite right now.
The band has been on hiatus since the end of 2015 and nothing is known about a big re-union, at least not for the foreseeable future.
Niall said: “I suppose right now, it would be a bit weird. Can’t rule anything out really, can you?”
He explained: “I told my managers from the start: When One Direction comes knocking, f**k what I’m doing. I don’t give a s**t if I sold out arenas or won Grammys. I wouldn’t be doing this if it wasn’t for that.”
