Louis Tomlinson has admitted a One Direction reunion is inevitable.
The British boy band, who were formed on The X Factor in 2010, went on an indefinite hiatus in 2016 after worldwide domination but have long been the subject to rumours about when or if they would ever reunite.
Now however Louis, who is a judge on the show where he first found fame, has claimed that it will happen but that it just depends on when.
I do think it will happen. Id certainly have something to say about it if it didnt. I think its inevitable.When is the big question. Thats something none of us really know the answer to at the moment, he said.
Speaking to ITN, he added: I feel like whats most important is that when we do get back together, were all on the same page and weve all done what we want to do individually.
Thats vitally important for when we get back.
Simon Cowell recently admitted that he has left the X Factor door open for Louiss return this year to this years series – but wants him to focus on himself after the loss of his sister.
The mogul admitted he is concerned for Louis as a friend, following the loss of his sister Félicité, who died from a suspected heart attack at the age of 18 back in March.
Her passing comes just two years after the death of Louiss mum, Johannah Deakin, who passed in December 2016 after a battle with leukaemia.
What he has gone through, you dont even think about work, Simon told The Sun. You just think about how youre going to be there for him as his friend.
