Liam Payne has opened up about One Direction’s possible reunion, revealing he doesn’t think it’ll happen for another two years.
The 26-year-old ‘Stack It Up’ singer told The Jonathon Ross Show: “All I can say is, through album cycles and single cycles, I see everybody putting songs out at the moment, I don’t think for at least the next two years it’s going to happen.”
When asked about whether he thought Zayn would make the comeback, he said: “When he left, it wasn’t on great terms so I don’t feel like it’s a thing."
“If he didn’t want to be here, he shouldn’t be here, which is fine. Like I say, good for him, he’s gone off and is doing his own thing and he’s doing really well so I don’t want to mess with his stuff. We did a whole stadium tour without him so I feel like it’s fine,” Liam added.
The father of one admitted earlier this year the pair never reconciled after Zayn left the band, and in a recent interview was asked if he could ever forgive him.
He told the Metro: “I just don’t think I am mature enough, even in my own head, to give that a real answer.
“At the moment, I am still pretty mad about the whole thing. I don’t thik he [Zayn] handled it very well. But never say never. Who knows? He chatted a loot of s*** in the early days. I thought One Direction were pretty good.”
“I wasn’t really ready for the band to go on a break. As far as I am concerned, I am happy doing what I am doing. But the day that [a reunion] does happen, and everyone is ready to do it, I am ready,” Louis added.
He guessed it would take longer than Liam estimated, saying: "There was no timeline on the gap. I would have preferred if someone said five years, and it probably will end up something like that.”
We’re all still (im)patiently awaiting the day!
