This year marks 10 years since One Direction came together and the four then-teenagers first took to the stage in their auditions for The X Factor.
Niall Horan, one of the band members, commemorated this moment on Twitter, saying: “10 years since my Xfactor audition aired on TV. Lost for words to be honest.
“All I can say is thank you to every single one of you for your support over the years. I love what i do more than most so, thank you !!”
Another band member, Liam Payne even met his future girlfriend and mother of his son, Cheryl.
Will One Direction reform for 10th anniversary?
Since then, One Direction went a long way, releasing five albums, two of which were as a foursome.
This was due to Zayn Malik, one of the key band members, choosing to leave the group and go solo in 2015.
By 2017, it was clear the band was no more, as they announced an 18-month hiatus in May of that year.
All of the band members have now released solo work, with Harry Styles and Zayn Malik’s efforts being the most famous.

However, clues have suggested the band may be getting back together to celebrate their 10th anniversary.
The first clue came when the four final band members refollowed Zayn Malik on Twitter.
After this, insiders suggested the group had all been conversing while on lockdown due to coronavirus.
One source close to the band’s management teams told Page Six: “There’s still a long way to go and a lot of hurdles.

“Obviously, at the moment anything they do would have to be done virtually.
“But there’s a lot of goodwill between them now and they want to make something happen.”
Since then, Liam Payne confirmed the band members had been talking, in a remote appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden.
Asked about the reunion, he said: “I’m not allowed to say too much obviously, because I’d be giving it away.

“But we’ve been speaking a lot more at the moment, I think that we’re all feeling that that 10 year is a very special moment.
“Yeah, it’s been really nice, it’s a nice moment.”
Payne said he had a “beautiful” chat with Niall Horan, and confirmed he had spoken to Louis Tomlinson as well since being on lockdown.
If it is the case the fivesome are chatting again, this could even mean new music if they do get back together for their celebrations.
