Simon Cowell has confirmed that One Direction are in talks to have their own TV show.

"I think there's something in the works, a possible TV show", Cowell told The Mirror, at the London auditions of Britain's Got Talent yesterday.

He added: "We're going to talk about that in the next couple of weeks. They're always busy these guys."

Cowell also confirmed that the band will release their fourth album this year: "The important thing is they've got a new album out this year."

The band, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, and Niall Horan, have been nominated for four Brit Awards ahead of next week's event however Cowell added: "It means more to them than it does to me, but I hope they pick up a few.

"Honest to God, all I'm interested in is record sales. It's nice to get an award but if you don't, you don't. I don't lose any sleep over it."
