After Brendan reveals that he's faced disappointment in the past having failed to gain success as part of a boyband in the past, Louis stated, "I get it, I used to be in a band, you want to move on from it."

One Direction went on hiatus following their last live performance on 31st December 2015, with each member of the band going on to record solo music in the years since.

Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson have all been asked repeatedly since about when they'll get back together and they've hinted that they'd be back at some point in the future, but Louis' latest comments have got fans worried.

Taking to Twitter, One Direction fans shared their disappointment that Louis publicly stated he wanted to move on from being in 1D and people really weren't happy about it.

Louis hasn't responded to fans asking him about his comments yet and none of the other One Direction lads have addressed it at all.

So what does this all mean for the future of 1D?
