Liam Payne ''can't wait'' for One Direction to get back together and says he thinks it's amazing that the band are breaking records every week while they are on a break.

The 24-year-old singer reckons it’s "insane" he and the rest of 1D have equalled the Beatles record of having three members have their solo albums top the charts.

"It’s amazing. Congratulations to Niall [on his recent album release]," he told OK! magazine.

"I can't believe the band are breaking records nearly every week while we're on hiatus. It's quite insane.

"But it makes me more proud to be a part of it and I can't wait for the comeback."

Payne, who has seven-month-old son Bear with partner Cheryl Tweedy, thinks interest in One Direction has stayed high because of social media.

"We're the first band to have a break in the eye of social media and I Think that's helped us a lot because before you couldn't see what people were up to and now it's all on Instagram stories.

"So I think that's had a massive effect on it.

"It's been fantastic and we keep on going, but obviously great music brings musical success and everyone is doing fantastic so far."

"I just found out my song is the ninth most-listened-to song of the summer on Spotify. That's amazing. I'm in the top 10? That's crazy."
