Los Angeles, March 31: Singer Gary Barlow, the frontman of British band Take That, hopes rumours that band One Direction is likely to split in the near future are false. He says they should "hang on".
One Direction comprises Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Liam Payne. It was formed during "The X Factor" reality show in 2010.
Barlow believes One Direction should "hang on" as it's "too early" for them to split.
He says groups often have disagreements, but insists must the boys must "look after one another".
"There will be rows in a band but you are brothers. They might be close sometimes and sometimes not, but it's part of the foundations - the boys have to take care of one another and look after one another," Barlow told The Sun newspaper, reports contactmusic.com.
"You are having an amazing run and it's brilliant. You can't walk away from that -- why would you? Whenever I've met them they seem incredibly adult about the whole thing.
"I think it's brilliant there is such a group representing Britain. If there's any suggestion of trouble, they need to hang on in there. It's way too early to be thinking about splitting up," he added.
