Coral was forced to close the market after punters took a "major gamble" late last night on the world's biggest boy band breaking up.

Before betting was suspended, the firm offered odds of even money on the five-piece calling it quits, while Styles was the 2/1 favourite to be the first member to leave.

The odds on any band member releasing solo material this year were 5/1.

A Coral spokesman said there was "no smoke without fire", adding "a rush of shrewd bets on One Direction splitting up raised the alarm and forced us to close betting until further notice".
