Ronan Keating off of Boyzone's WADED IN on all this One Direction hiatus malarky, advising the boys to get back together 'sooner' to avoid any 'bitterness' between 'em as they go off doing their solo stuff.
Speaking from experience, our Ronan reckons Harry, Liam, Louis and Niall should 'live the dream' as individuals for a bit before coming back to continue being 'the great band that they are.'
Oh, the chap speaks so much SENSE.
Chatting to those crazy little critters over at Digital Spy, Ronan said: "If they genuinely have had enough and want to go solo, I say go solo and live the dream. They're all great lads and superstars in their own right, so they should go off and have careers.
"But if they are genuinely taking a break, then don't let it be a long one. Get back sooner, because someone else will come along and replace them - or bitterness will start to fester between them. Or let the world know if it's a break-up, and go and have great solo careers. But don't be in this limbo land, because there's danger in that."
Well he's been through it, lads. Take some advice from our Ro'. VERY WISE MAN.
