We have seen a lot of impressive boybands coming and going over the years and, while most of these boybands fade after brief success, there are a few who actually go on to remain successful for many years. There are a few boybands around at the moment but, while some of them have enjoyed relative success, the biggest boyband on the planet right now are the British boyband One Direction.
A lot of people have been surprised by the huge global success that One Direction have enjoyed over the past few years, considering that all five of the members originally auditioned for The X Factor as solo artists, before being put together on the show. It is not only the fans and critics who have been surprised by the success of One Direction, as Zayn Malik has admitted that he still has to pinch himself.
Malik was chatting to the guys over at Top of the Pops, when he revealed, "We’re just as surprised about it as anyone else is, to be honest. We didn’t really expect any of it and it’s just crazy to see how it’s happened."
As well as enjoying success with One Direction, Zayn Malik has also been enjoying success in his personal, after falling for Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards, who also auditioned as a solo artist for The X Factor, before being put together with Little Mix. Zayn and Perrie are engaged and they are expected to get married next year.
Meanwhile, the new season of The X Factor will air on ITV on Saturday and Sunday nights.
