Here's Even More Evidence That a One Direction Reunion Just Isn't Going to Happen
If you were holding out for a One Direction reunion, we have some bad news to share.
Radio host Nick Grimshaw, who is very good pals with onetime One Direction member Harry Styles, spent a portion of his last Radio 1 Breakfast Show on Thursday, August 9, putting an end to the rumors that the fivesome has plans to reunite in the near future.
Nick used some of his final time as a Radio 1 host to play One Direction's "Drag Me Down," a track off the band's 2015 album, Made in the A.M., but it sounds like he took the song's depressing title a bit too seriously. Instead of ending on a high note, Nick used his final moments on air to dash the hopes of One D fans everywhere.
"When we started this show they were all together as a five piece," he said, according to J-14. "Do you think they'll ever get back together? No, not a chance. It's not happening, is it?"
As devoted fans know, One Direction announced they were going on hiatus in 2015, around the time Zayn Malik left the group, before taking a more formal break to focus on their solo ventures in March 2016.
Nick's disappointing statement comes after several promising signs from Harry, Zayn, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson that many fans felt might indicate a reunion was possible. Among them, the news that Niall recently said he plans on reuniting with Louis on The X Factor, the reality show that launched One Direction and is set to welcome back Louis as a judge.
Liam also recently discussed the possibility of a reunion happening "one day soon" back in June. "It's amazing that we're doing our own thing and then, hopefully one day soon, we get back together and have another great time of it, who knows?" he told Daily Star at the time.
We're still crossing our fingers for a reunion, but it's not looking good.
