Niall Horan has made the hearts of One Direction fans leap for joy after admitting that he would drop everything to take part in a reunion.
What’s more, Zayn Malik is definitely invited.
The Slow Hands singer is working on his solo material but gushed about his One Direction days and says he can’t wait until he’s back in the studio with Harry Styles, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson.
He said: “I told my managers from the start: When One Direction comes knocking, fook 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.”
However, the four of them haven’t even talked about when it will be just yet.
He added: “We haven’t even had a conversation about how long we think the break will be.”
The 23-year-old star also made us emotional when he said life on the road can be lonely now that the lads are working on separate projects.
He told the new issue of Billboard magazine: “Every now and then you’re like, ‘Fookin’ hell, where is everyone?’
“You’re sitting in an airport lounge, they call you for a plane, and you don’t stand up initially because you’re waiting on everyone else, you know? ‘Oh, Louis’ll be back from the toilet in a minute.'”
Niall said nothing he does will be as big as One Direction, adding: “But I have to try at least to get somewhere near it.”
Another revelation from the interview was that Niall would happily invite One Direction quitter Zayn Malik back into the fold.
“I know what Zayn’s like — outspoken, and fair play to him.
“We’ll always have mutual respect. When we get back to the band, he’ll be at the forefront again.”
Niall split from his mentor Simon Cowell when he embarked on his own solo career, but the star hopes he can maintain a good relationship with the music mogul.
Asked if Simon hates him now, Niall added: “I hope not, please don’t hate me. I just felt like I wanted and needed a fresh start.
“It’s a long time to be at a label I wanted to broaden my horizons and try something new.
“We both know that and when One Direction come back we’ll still have albums left to do.”
