One Direction was propelled into fame 11 years ago today when the five boys came together on The X Factor.
Members Niall Horan, 29, Harry Styles, 27, Zayn Malik, 28, Liam Payne, 27 and Louis Tomlinson, 27 have all kept very busy since announcing their split in 2016.
When they were together they sold more than 70 million records globally and currently have a combined net worth of around 330 million.
But where are the pop stars today? We have all the information on their careers, relationships and journey into fatherhood.
Niall Horan was pictured enjoying the summer weather.
The Irish singer released his debut album, Flicker, in 2017 which features hit like “Slow Hands” and “This Town”.
He followed this up with his second album, Heartbreak Weather, in 2020 with the singles “Nice to Meet Ya” and “No Judgement”.
Niall has previously been in a relationship with actor and singer Hailee Steinfeld but they ended things after a few months in December 2018.
However, it is reported that the Mullingar native is currently dating Birmingham fashion buyer Amelia Woolley.
Harry Styles rarely posts on his social media accounts and is quite private about his life.
While the pop star has been connected to a few famous faces like model Kendall Jenner, he prefers to keep his love life private.
However, he has recently been connected to director and actor Olivia Wilde, as they reportedly began dating in January 2021 after they met on the set of Don’t Worry Darling.
The singer’s first album, Harry Styles, was released in 2017 with the chart-topping single “Sign of the Times” labelled as the song of the year.
His second album, Fine Line, came out in 2019 with hits like Watermelon Sugar and Adore You.
Harry has also tried his hand at acting making his debut in the award-winning war film Dunkirk.

Zayn Malik seldomly posts on his social media accounts and prefers to keep his family life private.
Zayn became a father in September 2020 when he welcomed his first child, daughter Khai Hadid Malik with supermodel girlfriend Gigi Hadid. They began dating in late 2015.
He was previously engaged to fiancée Perrie Edwards of fellow X Factor group Little Mix, but they split in August 2015.
The first to break away from One Direction, Zayn released his massive hit song “Pillowtalk” in 2016 along with his debut record Mind of Mine which won him both an MTV VMA and an AMA.
He collaborated with Taylor Swift in 2017 releasing “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” which was featured in Fifty Shades Darker.
Liam Payne recently pictured with his sisters, Nicola Payne and Ruth Gibbons.
Liam is one of three fathers from One Direction as he welcomed his son Bear in 2016 with then-girlfriend Cheryl Tweedy. The pair split in July 2018 but continue to co-parent their son.
He recently also split from his fiancée model Maya Henry in June 2021 after they got engaged last year in August.
The singer released the pop-rap and R&B song “Strip That Down” in 2017 which was followed by his debut album LP1 in 2019.
Louis Tomlinson featured playing his guitar in his back garden.
Louis was the first member of One Direction to become a father, welcoming his son Freddie Reign on 21 January 2016 with American stylist Briana Jungwirth.
The singer is in a long-term relationship with Eleanor Calder, whom he met when she was a student back in November 2011. They announced their split in March 2015 but got back together in early 2017.
Since leaving One Direction, Louis has experienced a lot of personal loss. His mother, Johannah Deakin died of leukaemia in December 2016 and his younger sister Félicité Tomlinson died from an accidental overdose in March 2019.
His career has been doing well with him releasing the singles “Back to You” and “Just Like You” in 2017. He also released his first album Walls last year.
