Simon Cowell's been all over the One Direction chat this week, hasn't he? After making a few sneaky comments about Liam Payne's confirmed new solo contract with Capitol Records, he's teased Niall Horan's potential new solo venture, too.
Seeing as Harry Styles is loving life in the acting world with his debut movie Dunkirk in the works, Louis Tomlinson is all over America's Got Talent and we all know what Uncle Si thinks of Liam's next career move (ahem), that only leaves our Nialler.
And as well as Modest! Golf management, which saw him up at the Northern Ireland Open this week hoping to nurture some up and coming talent (we so faaancy), Simon's teased a 'big announcement' coming soon.
He told People: "I think they're all gonna do great. Niall is the most loyal. We are expecting to announce something soon with him. I've always known he's loyal."
All this comes as Simon previously commented: "You know what, we're talking to all of [the 1D guys] at the moment. You know what the great thing about these boys are, well not all of them, just most of them, they're incredibly loyal. And you don't always expect that. Niall, Harry, Louis are amazing."
Of course we're not 100 per cent certain SiSi's talking about a solo career for Niall and they might have a very different idea in mind (maybe he's the next Mary Berry), but whaddaya reckon? Is Niall hitting up the solo hype? Let us know your thoughts @Sugarscape, and whilst you're at it? Follow us on Instagram toooo, please.
