Boyband One Direction have declared they are not splitting up.

Instead they want to "release an album every year - year on year", according to member Liam Payne.

The band, Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik, Harry Styles and Niall Horan, who were brought together by Simon Cowell in the X Factor in 2010, are in Colombia to kick off an international tour after a three-month break and have started recording their fourth album.

Styles told the Sun on Sunday: "We always hear rumours about us splitting - but we're not", while Horan added: "We're here for as long as the fans want us."

Friends and family, including Tomlinson's girlfriend Eleanor Calder, will be flown out during their time away from home.

Payne told the Sun on Sunday: "Coming back together is like the first day of school. We don't want to go into the lessons because the social is too much fun."
