One Direction fans can breathe a collective sigh of relief.

Following reports that the boy band had plans to call it quits, group member Niall Horan took to Twitter to deny that the quartet members are going their separate ways.

"Ok so Lots of rumours going round," he tweeted. "We are not splitting up, but we will be taking a well earned break at some point next year."

"Don't worry though, we still have lots we want to achieve!," he added. "Can't wait for you to hear all the new music we have for you and to perform some new songs as the tour continues! Love you all xx."

The group, which is currently on the road, has plans to release their fifth album later this year.
