One Direction (2010-present)
One Direction are a British boyband who appeared in the 2010 series of talent show 'The X Factor'. The band members are Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson.
Formation: Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik auditioned as solo singers in the seventh series of 'The X Factor'. They failed to make it through to live shows individually, and so were put together as One Direction by the judges. While they finished third, they signed to Simon Cowell's Syco Records.
Career: One Direction topped the UK charts with their debut single 'What Makes You Beautiful' in 2011 and subsequently signed with America's Columbia Records. They supported Big Time Rush during their first tour of the US, and their 2012 album 'Up All Night' became the first British group to top US charts with a debut album. During that year, they went through a courtcase (which they subsequently won) after being sued for having the same name as another band in the US.
That year the band performed their debut single at the 2012 Summer Olympics closing ceremony in London.
One Direction recorded their second album 'Take Me Home' in Stockholm, and released it in 2012 alongside the number one singles 'Live While We're Young' and 'Little Things', the latter of which they performed at the Royal Variety Performance.
In 2013, they released a mash-up of 'One Way or Another' and 'Teenage Kicks' for Comic Relief, during which time they went to Ghana as volunteers at a hospital.
That year their documentary movie 'One Direction: This Is Us' was released, directed by Morgan Spurlock, and became the fourth highest grossing concert movie. They also unveiled their album 'Midnight Memories' featuring lead single 'Best Song Ever'. They are the first British band to debut at the top of the Billboard 200 with its first three albums.
In 2014, they released 'One Direction: Where We Are - The Concert Film' and an autobiography entitled 'Who We Are', followed by their album 'Four'.
In 2015, it was announced that Zayn Malik had left the band. They later released the first single from their fifth album, 'Drag Me Down', and announced that they were planning a hiatus to explore solo career paths.
Louis' performance on 'The X Factor' this weekend, if it goes ahead, will be in tribute to his mother.
“It is with immeasurable sadness that Johannah Deakin’s family said goodbye to Johannah in the early hours of Wednesday 7th December 2016,” a statement read the following day.
“Earlier this year Johannah was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of leukaemia that required immediate and continuous treatment. We respectfully request that the family are given time and space to grieve in private.”
Horan said that it would be "ridiculous" if 1D didn't get back together in the future.
Although he recently launched his solo career, former One Direction singer Niall Horan has once again promised the band’s fans that they would “definitely” reunite in the future – although he declined to be drawn on exactly when that would be.
Speaking to Sunday People this weekend (November 27th), the 23 year old star said that it would be “ridiculous” to say that One Direction would never get back together. “We will be back. We would be silly not to.”

Adele's net worth has more than doubled to £92 million in 2016, according to Heat magazine's annual list.
2016 just seems to keep delivering more great news for Adele, as it’s been revealed that she’s more than doubled her net worth to be named as the richest British celebrity under the age of 30, knocking One Direction’s band members from the top of the list.
The 28 year old singer, currently nearing the end of her extensive Adele Live 2016 tour, was ranked top of Heat magazine’s annual list with an estimated wealth of £92 million – a figure that is easily over twice as much as she was worth last year (£38 million).

The former One Direction star also said that, if he could do it all over again, he wouldn't have signed up for the band until he was a bit older.
Zayn Malik has spoken some more about his much-publicised struggles with anxiety, saying in a new interview that admitting to suffering from it is seen “like a weakness”.
The 23 year old former One Direction singer cancelled a number of scheduled high-profile live performances, such as the Summertime Ball at Wembley Stadium in June, and a huge gig in Dubai in September, because of what he described as “extreme anxiety”.

In an excerpt from his newly-released autobiography, 23 year old Zayn revealed his battle with an eating disorder during his five years in 1D.
The 23 year old British-born singer is publishing his autobiography, simply titled ‘ZAYN’, on Tuesday (November 1st), and a segment of it sees him reveal the extent to which the condition affected him, with periods of up to three days at a time during which he would not eat.
This was down to the band’s hectic schedule disrupting his eating patterns, and also because of Zayn’s desire to exercise control over his situation at the expense of his weight.

Playing 'Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts' on 'The Late Late Show', he was also asked by James Corden about his relationship with the rest of One Direction...
In fairness, he was asked to choose between only Goulding and his other former flame, Selena Gomez, during the game of ‘Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts’ he played with Corden’s other guests, Isla Fisher and Ewan McGregor. In the game, each guest was asked to reveal a deep persona truth or eat or drink some kind of revolting foodstuff.
