Fifth Harmony thinks One Direction will ''live on forever''.

The chart-topping boy band announced they would be taking an extended hiatus next year but the 'Worth It' hitmakers are sure the group will continue as before once they've taken a break.

Normani Hamilton said: ''Honestly I feel like they'll live on forever. They're like a sea. There comes a point in careers where people just want to be happy. We support happiness.''

And the girls have no plans to follow in the boy band's footsteps just yet.

When asked how a band knows it's time to take a break, Dinah-Jane Hansen told gossip website TMZ: ''I don't know, because right now we're pretty psyched.''

Meanwhile, the girl group have got a lot to look forward to themselves, having recently announced their first ever European tour.

Member Ally Brooke Hernandez said at the time of the announcement: ''We love Europe and our European Harmonizers who have always made us feel so welcome. We're really excited to be bringing our tour to the UK. It's going to be crazy!

''We are going to be in Europe! I'm literally crying about this because this is a dream come true.''
