One Direction fans have been given more hope of the band getting back together, making new music and touring again, by none other than Liam Payne.

The pop star made the claims in an interview with Buzzfeed, saying reuniting with his former bandmates is a matter of when, not if.

"Yes, I think we will reunite at some point in the future," says Payne.

"We have to. I mean, we've got an album we haven't even toured yet, and I want to write some more songs as well with the boys."

When asked if there was just one other One Direction member he could collaborate with again, Payne chose the one who quit the group first.

"I think I would collaborate best with Zayn [Malik] because we do really similar types of music."

He also said of all the female pop stars in the world, Nicki Minaj is the one he'd most like to duet with.
