Sep 7, 2021

Get excited One Direction fans because Liam Payne has teased a reunion and predicts it will be bigger than Take That’s.

The boy band failed to reunite for their 10th anniversary last year, but Liam still reckons it will happen and wants to emulate Take That's 2006 comeback when they returned to even greater success.

Liam explained: “They killed it, I actually walked past a plaque of them from their second coming, the second coming of Take That, in the studio and I was like, ‘Well done boys that’s proper cool’.

“I remember going to see them at Wembley and they smashed it out of the park.

Liam revealed he’s also spoken with Harry Styles recently, thought to be the one member holding back a reunion.

But when 1D do return Liam knows which member of Take That’s career he hopes to emulate – Gary Barlow.
