One Direction could be set to reunite with one bookmaker saying odds are falling on a comeback later this year by the band.
They first got together in 2010 after appearing on The X Factor as solo artists before being formed into a boy band.
The boys may have not won that year, coming third in the competition but they still stole the hearts of the nation.
They became the first band in the US Billboard 200 history to have their first four albums debut at number one.
As of 2020, the band have sold a total of 70 million records worldwide, making them one of the best-selling boy bands of all time.
Despite their huge success as a group, they split up in 2016. Zayn Malik left the band the year before the split during their tour – months later they released their final album as a group titled, “Made in the AM.”
Since going their different ways the former members have been working on their own solo projects, but rumours suggest they could be getting back together with high odds on there could even be a new album.
Bookmaker Coral makes the reunion a strong bet saying One Direction are odds-on at 4-5 to reunite as a group in 2021.
Last year, Coral previously made a lower prediction of the band getting back together in 2020 and said the odds were higher this year.
The pop stars are 6-4 to release a new album by the end of 2022 – which would excite original 1D fans.
The prediction on Zayn Malik making a return is 2-1. The singer left before the group split when he was 21 years old – Malik said he just wanted to be a ‘normal 21-year-old’ away from the spotlight, who can relax and do normal things.
The boy band are 3-1 to win a Brit Award in 2022. Coral’s John Hill said: “It’s been six long years now for 1D fans,
“But our betting gives them strong hope that the boys will get back together in 2021 as we make a reunion odds-on to happen.”
Hill isn’t confidant on Zayn’s return thinks there is more chance of an album release.
“We think it is more likely that the group will release a new album than Zayn being part of the reunion,” John added.
If the super stars decide to get back together there is a chance, they would be up for a Brit award.
“We are also not ruling out a Brit award for the boys in 2022 if they do get back together this year,” concluded Hill.
