Following the news, many of his fans replied with get well wishes, with one writing "We need you back James , GET WELL SOON AND LOADS OF LOVE FROM ME AND MY GALS !!!"
Another said "Sending healing thoughts your way!"
A source reportedly said: "Cowell and Corden are now in a battle for who gets One Direction to perform together again first.
"Simon was their mentor; who first had the idea of putting them together as a group and they are one of the most successful acts from one of his shows.
"But while all the One Direction boys adore Simon and enjoy working with him, there are other TV shows today," continued the source.
"Harry Styles is very good friends with James' executive producer Ben Winston – he even used to live with him – so his inclination is to lean towards James' show.
"The other lads really like James and Ben too and the show is a great platform for them. It's a tough call."
Meanwhile, Niall Horan has denied that there will be any One Direction reunion at all, while he spoke on Instagram Live.
"No. Obviously, there's a lot of talk about it at the moment, because the ten year anniversary of the band getting together is happening this year, but there's no reunion, as such. We've just been talking a bit more, recently," confirmed Nialler.
