The One Direction boys have taken to Twitter with their first post in many years as they get set to celebrate ten years of One Direction. The boys shot to fame in X Factor were the real deal and dream team capturing the hearts of all ages of fans with their music. 

Since then, the band have split and gone on to creat successful solo careers and this is a real testament to the strength in the way they were formed.

While it's unclear what surprises the 1D guys have in store for their legions of fans, rumors have been rumbling for quite some time about an impending reunion between the bandmates.

The evidence? Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson have all openly discussed the likelihood of getting the band back together in various interviews over the last few years. (In fact, just a few weeks ago Payne sent Directioners into a frenzy by posting a TikTok of a cryptic FaceTime call with Styles.)

With over 300 shows played across four sold out world tours, four No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200, six Billboard Hot 100 top 10 hits, four Video Music Awards, 28 Teen Choice Awards, two Saturday Night Live appearances, billions of streams -- and that’s not even considering the solo success each member found, following Malik's departure in 2015 and the rest of the group's official hiatus in 2016. This was all made possible by the group’s amazing international fanbase, characterised by its unprecedented devotion and accelerated by the rise of social media and music streaming, ultimately rivaling the fandom of any other boy band in history.

As we approach the ten year anniversary of One Direction’s formation -- with a new anniversary-celebrating 1D website today there is definitely "a whole lotta history" to these boys. Let us know your favourite 1D tune.
