The Sun (£) newspaper quoted a "1D source" as saying the foursome would take some time apart to work on solo projects.

The report follows the departure of former fifth member Zayn Malik earlier this year.

A band spokesman has said he would not "comment on speculation".

Heartbroken fans have been bombarding social media with messages of outrage, devastation, and scepticism over the reports.
