The singer said he has been speaking with fellow group members Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson recently about a fitting way to mark a decade of the insanely-popular boy band.

It's not known if former member Zayn Malik, who departed from the group in 2015, is part of the plans.

Speaking to The Sun, Payne said: ‘We’ve got a ten-year anniversary coming up so we’ve all been speaking together a lot over the last few weeks which has been really nice.

"To hear a lot of people’s voices and seeing old content and different things that we haven’t seen for a long time or never seen before, it’s very interesting.

"At the moment I’m not sure what I’m allowed to say. There’s a number of different things that we are all working on to try and make happen and people are forwarding emails around. ‘But more than anything it’s just been a real good time for us to connect together again."

One Direction have been on an indefinite hiatus since 2016, during which time all members of the group have embarked on solo projects.

1D finished third on the X Factor in 2010 before going on to become one of the biggest boy bands of all time, releasing five chart-topping albums and winning seven BRIT Awards and seven American Music Awards.
