One Direction are reportedly not planning to take time off from their hiatus to attend the BRIT Awards despite being nominated for two gongs
One Direction won't reunite for the BRIT Awards.
The chart-topping group - which includes Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan - are currently taking a hiatus and have no plans to appear at the award show, where they are nominated for the British Artist Video of the Year for their single 'Drag Me Down' and British Group.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "BRIT organisers were desperate to get the boys. They told them they could perform whatever they wanted, even a new single, or just turn up for a boozy night out.
"It didn't work though. The lads seem more focused on their own projects now than rejoining their bandmates - even for the biggest night in showbiz."
Meanwhile, Harry is reportedly set to have singing lessons ahead of his solo career.
A source said: "People may find it funny Harry needs singing lessons ahead of a solo career but it's pretty standard practice.
"He's performed well live and can obviously sing but he's smart enough to realise he needs to learn more about how best to develop his vocal skills. He's grounded and professional enough to know he needs to work hard to achieve the success he wants as a solo artist."
