One Direction fans are desperate for the boyband to finally put an end to their hiatus, which began in January 2016. The past four years have felt a lot longer to Directioners, but their patience might be rewarded soon, according to the odds. Ladbrokes have cut odds to just 1/2 on One Direction reuniting before the end of the year.
Just a few weeks ago, the bookies had One Direction priced at 10/11 to reunite in 2020.
Speaking to Express.co.uk, spokesman Alex Apati said: “One Direction are far from History if the latest odds anything to go by with a 2020 reunion being The One Thing fans can seemingly look forward to this year.”
The move comes after ex-One Direction star Harry Styles revealed he had been penning new music.
Last week, Styles revealed he had been writing amid the coronavirus lockdown.

In an interview with Zane Lowe for Apple Music, the Falling hitmaker said: “I’ve been writing so much. To be honest, I’m doing some of the stuff that I should be doing more often anyway.
“I should be playing the guitar more. I should be writing poems and lyrics more. So I’ve been doing a lot of that.”
While he gave no indication which hands that new music might end up in — and it’s likely to be funnelled into his own solo career — there could be a chance it winds up as One Direction’s, if a reunion comes to pass.
Styles also spoke out about the coronavirus crisis and how it might impact on the music industry’s creativity.
“I think a lot of powerful music is going to come from that because ultimately you have to have people who have a need to express themselves through music and writing and film and so many different ways, who are now having a lot of extra time with no distractions,” he said.
“I hope that it comes out in terms of music. I think we’ll probably get a lot of honestly, which is amazing.
“Because also I just think people want honesty right now, especially in times like this,” he added.
“It gives you an ability to have almost like a bird’s-eye view of the world and your life.”

Elsewhere, Styles also appeared on Capital Breakfast yesterday morning for an interview.
During their chat, radio presenter Lucy Horobin pointed out the number of artists doing live performances over Instagram and brought up Backstreet Boys’ hilarious isolation video singing their I Want It That Way together from their respective homes.
“Is that something that you would ever consider doing with the 1D boys?” she asked cheekily.
Teasing fans, the former One Direction star called the idea “interesting”, saying: “I mean, we’re not working right now so probably not this second.
“It would be an interesting way of doing a reunion for sure,” he added.
“If you did it I think the Backstreet Boys would be like, ‘Oh right, that’s just blown us out of the water, thanks,’” Horobin pressed.
But Styles wasn’t going to give any more away, simply replying tactfully: “It would be an interesting way to reunite.”
The One Direction members have each launched their own solo careers in the years since the band separated, with varying degrees of success.
