Simon Cowell - Simon Cowell: One Direction will 'probably' split up eventually


Simon Cowell thinks One Direction will probably break up ''eventually''.

The boy band were put together on the media mogul's talent show 'The X Factor' in 2010, and he has suggested while they are ''really enjoying'' being a group, he wouldn't be too surprised if the five members - Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne - wanted to go solo in the future.

He told Billboard magazine: ''Eventually they probably will split up and maybe want to have their own careers.

''The choice is theirs, we've got the opportunity to do both. But from what I hear, they're really enjoying what they're doing.

''We don't feel there's anything wrong. They're getting more time off, I hope they stay a band for a long time.''

Fans will be hoping the 'Story of My Life' hitmakers don't decide to go their separate ways - and Harry has previously claimed they want to keep singing together ''for a long time''.

He recently said: ''I think we're just so busy at the moment that there's no way we would have time anyway, but I think we just have so much fun, doing this and we want to all be doing this for a long time.

''So I just think we'll keep working hard and having fun and see what happens.''
