Irish music star Niall Horan has revealed he is up for a One Direction reunion, but only if "everyone wanted to do it".

The Mullingar-born singer-songwriter came to fame alongside Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik in the boyband which formed on The X Factor in 2010.

Although they only came third in that season of the show, they went on to become a global phenomenon, selling more than 50 million records around the world.

Malik quit the band in March 2015 during their On the Road Again Tour, citing stress as the reason for returning to the UK. The rest of the members later went on an indefinite hiatus and have since pursued solo careers.

Niall Horan would like a One Direction reunion if "everyone wanted to do it"

Appearing on The Jonathan Ross Show on ITV, Horan was asked if the band will ever get back together.

He said: "I don't know… no-one really talks about it. Still talk to them all the time. There’s a couple of little babies from them lads. Everyone’s having their own success on their own. I’m enjoying what I’m doing."

Horan added: "Of course, if everyone wanted to do it, I'd be down for it… you kind of need to all get in the same room and have the chat, but I don’t know when that would be.

"Having the same opinion is going to be always hard. Unless everyone was completely in, I wouldn’t want to do it. I wouldn’t want to half-force someone into doing it."

The Irish singer appears on the show alongside Anne-Marie, where they will perform their new single Our Song.
