Bookies slash the odds on One Direction never reuniting

Following the news that One Direction will be on a break for longer than fans had hoped for, bookmaker Coral has been inundated with bets on the boy band never getting back together. It’s now 5-1 from 8-1 that they split for good, while it’s 6-1 that the break lasts for at least five years.

Coral has opened betting on which member will storm the charts first, making Harry Styles the 6-4 favourite, while Niall Horan is the 4-1 outsider. Styles can also be backed at 10-1 to star in a Hollywood movie.

“It’s starting to look like One Direction are slowing trying to break the news that the break is more like a split, which has led to a flurry of bets on the boys calling it a day for good,” said Coral’s Nicola McGeady.
