Boyband-related heartbreak's something we all have to deal with from time to time, innit? Especially when it comes to certain secrets certain members may have been hiding which means they'll never quite love us in the same way we love them. When Boyzone's Stephen Gately came out back in the day, we didn't leave our room for weeks. When Union J's Jaymi Hensley admitted he's gay, we set up a little shrine to mend our aching hearts.

Well now *NSync's Lance Bass - one of the ones that wasn't Justin Timberlake - has said he reckons 'at least one' of the One Direction boys has gotta be gay. Ooh er.

Lance Bass

When an interviewer suggested to the out former *NSyncer that a 1D member might be gay, Lance responded: "Statistically speaking, one of them probably is. But it’s crazy with a market like that because [it’s] 100% young women and they fantasise about these guys and then you have the record labels and everyone [is] grooming you to make sure you don’t even mention you have a girlfriend…so screw the fact that you are going to come out as being gay - it ruins their whole business plan.” Hmm.

One Direction gay

Well technically the actual statistic is that one in ten people are gay...and there are only five members of One Direction. So WHO KNOWS? All we know is that we don't care about business plans or secrets or girlfriends or anything. We just bloody love them and quite like it when they get a bit naked and sing some songs.

What do you reckon? Is seasoned pro Lance right? Comments after this not-at-all-homoerotic video of the lads in a massive pair of pants, please.
