One Direction are getting back together! Maybe. It’s totally possible. I mean, they’re probably not getting back together at all. But something is probably going to happen to mark the group’s tenth anniversary.

Speaking to The Sun last week – while he was supposed to be promoting his new collaboration with Alesso – Liam Payne said: “We’ve got a ten year anniversary coming up so we’ve all been speaking together a lot over the last few weeks, which has been really nice. To hear a lot of people’s voices and seeing old content and different things that we haven’t seen for a long time or never seen before, it’s very interesting. At the moment I’m not sure what I’m allowed to say”.

Say a bit more Liam! Say more! “There’s a number of different things that we are all working on to try and make happen and people are forwarding emails around. But more than anything it’s just been a real good time for us to connect together again”.

The former members of 1D have emailed each other then. That’s the news today, people! What exactly they’re planning isn’t clear though – and the scale of any project probably depends on what date they’re counting from. If it’s the date that they were forced together on ‘The X Factor’, then the tenth anniversary is coming up this summer. If it’s the release of their first proper single, they have until September 2021.

Of course, right now, all preparations have to be done remotely, thanks to COVID-19 (not to mention the fact that they don’t all live in the same country). They all have busy solo careers too, of course. Apart from Zayn. But who knows if he’d want to be involved anyway. And they all seem to have outgrown One Direction so much by this point – despite it only being five years since they last performed together – a reunion might look a bit odd now.

Anyway, the former members of One Direction still use email as a communication tool. That’s the big news here.
