Simon Cowell has vowed to make the One Direction reunion happen as he’s convinced he can get the boys back together again.

Is a One Direction reunion finally on the cards?

Simon Cowell seems to think so after he appeared to be pretty convinced that if anyone can get the boys back together, it’s him.

The music mogul created 1D on the X Factor back in 2010, where Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Zayn Malik finished in third place, before going on to become arguably the biggest boy band of our generation.

As fans know, Zayn left the group in 2015, with the other four band members going on to release their final album, before announcing their hiatus in 2016.

The boys have gone to have extremely successful solo careers since, however, Simon isn’t giving up hope on the idea of the ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ stars reforming.

Joining Australia’s Today show, Simon said about the reunion: “I think it will happen. If they got together, whether it is making records again or touring, it would be the most amazing thing. I'd love it to happen.

"If I could get into a room with them all and just say to them, 'You know what, whether it's six months or something, I think you would have such a great time and enjoy each others' company again'.

“Maybe I could persuade them. But I think they should do it, definitely. The fans, of course, would love it."

This comes after fans celebrated their 10-year anniversary last July, which marked a decade since One Direction was formed on the X Factor.

Harry, Niall, Louis and Liam dedicated special posts to the iconic moment they became a band, thanking fans for their continued support over the years.

Talks of a reunion have been floating around for quite some time, but nothing has been set in stone just yet.

We’ll be waiting!
