Nevertheless, following Zayn’s announcement, new reports are stating that Harry could be the next to go.
A source tells E! News: “Harry has told his friends that the wants to get into acting. He loves Los Angeles."
During the band’s rare breaks, Harry often spends time in LA, and earlier this year he held his star-studded 21st birthday bash there.
"He certainly has hopes of doing solo stuff, branching out on his own, and so this might be the natural juncture in which to do that."
One Direction will continue as a 4-piece
1D took to the stage for the first time since officially becoming a 4-piece on Wednesday night, and Harry’s sadness at Zayn’s departure was there for everyone to see.
As expected, plenty of Directioners have shared their thoughts on the matter via Twitter, with a number blaming Zayn’s fiancée Perrie Edwards for the singer’s decision.
Their tour is due to arrive in the UK this September, before ending in Sheffield on 31 October.
