EXCLUSIVE: One Direction tipped for 2020 reunion after singers clear diaries
Coral Bookmakers have hinted that superstar boyband One Direction are tipped for a huge 2020 reunion, without Zayn Malik.
One Direction went on an indefinite hiatus back in 2016, shattering the hearts of millions of fans.
Their break came just a year after Bradford-born Zayn Malik left the band, while on a world tour. He cited wanting to live as a "normal 22-year-old who is able to relax".
Speaking on Sunday Brunch in December, Liam Payne claimed that the band could reunite in the next few years.
Payne said: "I think we will for sure. I don't know when that is yet, but all I know is that there are at least two years because everyone's released new music and you have to go and promo."

Speaking exclusively to Daily Star Online, Coral’s John Hill has released the odds for a One Direction reunion being pencilled in.
Hill said: "Punters have been knocking us over to back the boys to get back together in 2020 where one or two of them have hinted that a reunion is possible in the near future.
"Unfortunately for One Direction fans, the betting suggests a reunion will be without Zayn Malik."

Currently, odds stand at 1-2 for the 2020 reunion, 6-4 for a new album from the quartet and 5-2 for a reunion including Zayn Malik.
When asked about reunion rumours, John added: "There is rarely smoke without fire in such betting markets, and the latest odds all now point to a One Direction reunion in 2020, something which is going to get 1D fans extremely excited for heading into the New Year."
The bookie went on to shatter the hearts of 1D fans, adding: "Any hope of Zayn lining up alongside his former bandmates do look dashed slightly though, as the betting suggests it will be four members, rather than five for the reunion."

Fans have since speculated that a reunion will be taking place in 2020, as the lads all seem to have spare time towards the end of the year, which was echoed by Coral.
Harry , Niall and Liam all released music towards the end of the year, with Doncaster lad, Louis, releasing his debut album in early 2020.
It also appears that Harry and Louis have tours planned in the same month, suggesting that the band are gearing up to announce their future.

Hill’s went on to say: "Punters may well have seen that Harry, Niall and Liam have all release music at the back end of 2019 so their diaries next year are all clear to return as One Direction.
"Louis and Harry are also both touring close to each other, therefore, all the signs point towards 2020 being the year the boys finally get back together."
