One Direction are closer than ever to a comeback – if one of the country's top bookmakers have it right.

Fans have been given a late Christmas gift with the news that the odds on the group getting back together are as low as they have ever been.

1D die-hards have never given up hope that Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Zayn Malik will get back on stage together.

The odds on the band reuniting next year currently sit at 1/5, bookmakers Ladbrokes say.

That means their comeback seems likelier than ever – whipping fans into a frenzy.

Ladbrokes’ Alex Apati told The Express : “Odds of the lads reuniting are only going in one direction.

“It's great news for fans with an imminent comeback seemingly on the cards.”

One Direction split in 2015 after Zayn quit the band during their world tour, citing "stress" for his decision to say goodbye to the group.

"But there’s a lot of goodwill between them now and they want to make something happen."

Fans hoped 2020 would be the year but Covid put paid to any chances of a reunion.

It is ten years since they found fame on X Factor – and the stars were said to be keen on getting something off the ground.

Liam admitted at the start of the year that the bandmates had been "speaking together a lot over the last few weeks" and that "there’s a number of different things that we are all working on to try and make happen."
