1D ready for action
One Direction are focused on their upcoming album and tour and won't be taking a breather next year, their publicist states.
Recent reports claimed the group - who are now a four piece following Zayn Malik's shock departure in March - are planning time off in 2016 having worked non-stop for the past five years.
But now their publicist has revealed the rumours about Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles are entirely false, and if anything the lads are already looking to the future.
"The story is all pure speculation and not based on any facts," their rep told BBC Newsbeat.
"The band are due to record. They're excited about their brand new fifth album and their upcoming tour."
The guys announced their plans to record their new record as a quartet during an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden last month.
Earlier this week Harry spoke to Ryan Seacrest about how things are going in the studio with their new set up.
Zayn left the hit band to be a "normal 22-year-old" and to focus on his relationship with Little Mix fiancée Perrie Edwards, who he is thought to be tying the knot with later this year.
“The creative process - it’s very similar to be honest,” Harry explained to the On Air with Ryan Seacrest radio show. “But it was cool how some of the things came out sounding because actually there [were] a lot of parts... written with Zayn in mind and with all of us in mind. It’s great, the new stuff sounds good so far I think? I hope. So we hope that people like it."
