ONE Direction have sparked reunion rumours by revealing they are launching a website together this month – on the band’s 10th anniversary.
And now a week before their milestone, the group have got fans into a frenzy as they launch a celebration website.
The site, which goes live July 23, will feature a special video made for their fans to honour the celebration as well as interactive playlists and activations across digital platforms later this month.
Fans were understandably thrilled by the announcement while others are convinced there’s a bigger surprise coming.
One penned: “1 week till the 10 years of One Direction and I can honestly say I am FREAKING out.”
“I can’t believe it’s actually happening. 10 YEARS OF ONE DIRECTION,” another shared.
Meanwhile, a third penned: “10 years of One Direction, the biggest and most loved boyband, deserves more than a playlist and a video.
“Maybe those are just to get the people excited and to talk about it and then on the 23rd they’ll do something BIG and unforgettable” (sic).
Previously, The Sun’s Bizarre revealed in April that a full reunion was “extremely unlikely” after Liam had got fans in a frenzy when he revealed they had met up.
A source close to the boys said: “They are back in touch but talks between them are only about something small to mark the anniversary.
“They all have their own music ongoing so a reunion right now just wouldn’t make sense.
“Harry, Niall and Louis have postponed tours which they will need to complete.
“A reunion with all five members is a wonderful idea but in practice these things take a long time to arrange and it doesn’t seem feasible at the moment.
“And with the continued threat of coronavirus, it is unlikely they will be able to get together for the anniversary.”
The fivesome were first formed on the X Factor in 2010 and went on to place third on the talent show behind winner Matt Cardle.
Following their stint on the series, they were immediately signed to Syco and went on to become one of the best-selling boybands in music history with an astonishing 50million records sold.
The band were rocked in March 2015 when Zayn Malik abruptly quit the group in the midst of a world tour.
They continued on as a four-piece, releasing their fifth and final album Made in the A.M. before going on hiatus in 2016 to persue solo projects.
