One Direction back on The X Factor
One Direction are set to return to The X Factor, the show which launched them to fame.
The boyband - Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Liam Payne - have enjoyed huge success since they came third on the 2010 series after being put together as one of Simon Cowell's groups.
Now they'll perform on an upcoming live show, singing their new single Story of My Life while promoting third studio album Midnight Memories, according to the Daily Mirror.
The ITV show's executive producer Mark Sidaway confirmed the band's appearance, writing on Twitter: "@onedirection confirmed to appear on @TheXFactor. Who wants to come?"
It's not been announced which show they'll be performing on and the band are also booked to perform on the US version of the show, the Mirror said.
