Niall Horan breaks his silence: “One Direction is not splitting up”

Directioners, prepare yourselves for more than a few changes!

Niall insists 1D still have lots to achieve!

Niall Horan insists One Direction are not splitting up and says they ”still have lots to achieve” even though they will be taking a well earned break at some point next year.

The 21-year-old singer took to Twitter to address recent rumours he and his bandmates, Harry Styles, 21, Liam Payne, 21, and Louis Tomlinson, 23, have decided to take an extended hiatus to focus on individual projects.

Addressing fans for the first time, he said:  ”Ok so lots of rumours going round. We are not splitting up, but we will be taking a well earned break.” It comes after reports that the pop stars are set to go their separate ways in March.

In a series of tweets, Niall, 21, told his 23 million Twitter followers:

The other 1D lads told fans on Twitter they will just be taking a “break”.

Father-to-be Louis also tweeted, thanking fans:

Liam later took to Twitter to add his own response.

Reports about the X Factor creation’s longevity sparked a scramble for tickets to what fans feared may be One Direction’s final concert. Some sources added the break had been on the cards “with or without Zayn” Malik, who left the group in March. It is believed the break and the decision not to tour was rubber-stamped in a meeting in London last weekend.

Sources close to the band have stressed that ”It is definitely not a splitand they fully intend to get back together at some time in the future. But for now it is the end and they go out on top as the world’s most popular music act.”

On the back of the announcement main man Louis Walsh tips Niall Horan for huge success after boyband split. He is sure after the break the Mullingar singer will be the life and solo of the party!
