This weekend One Direction star Niall Horan appears on The Jonathan Ross Show. The Irish singer performs alongside British singer Anne-Marie to play their new track together, Our Song. Before their performance, Niall was asked about a potential reunion for 1D. On if the band will reform, Niall said: “I don’t know… no one really talks about it.”
Despite this, Niall added: “[I] still talk to them all the time. There’s a couple of little babies from them lads.
“Everyone’s having their own success on their own. I’m enjoying what I’m doing.”
On if he would get back with the band, he added: “Of course, if everyone wanted to do it, I’d be down for it.
“You kind of need to all get in the same room and have the chat, but I don’t know when that would be.”
Niall went on to reveal the only reason he would not want to bring the band back together.
He said: “Having the same opinion is going to be always hard. Unless everyone was completely in, I wouldn’t want to do it. I wouldn’t want to half force someone into doing it.”
The possibility of a reunion is still up in the air, as no official announcement has been given just yet.
However, the odds are in the fans’ favour, as leading bookmaker Ladbrokes recently gave 1/5 odds on 1D getting back together in 2021.
Zayn also recently had his first child with long-term partner Gigi Hadid, so he may be a little busy being a father to rejoin a globetrotting band.
On The Jonathan Ross Show, Niall was also asked if he was a godfather to any of the children the 1D boys had produced yet.
He replied he “would have liked to have been. Maybe the next one”.
During his interview with the talk show host, Niall also reminisced about the chaos of being in One Direction during the height of their fame.
Niall recalled: “I remember being 19 and looking out the window of a hotel and the police had done a headcount of 10 or 15,000 people outside of the hotel.
“And you’re thinking: ‘I’m not leaving here for a coffee today.’”
He added: “I’m only 27 now and I’ve been in the industry for 10 years.”
The Jonathan Ross Show airs Saturday, May 29, at 9:30pm on ITV and ITV Hub.
