"We've all spoken about it and, you know, the dream for this most fantastic show that could be, is amazing.

"With everybody being so successful, this in part now (sic) is so important for us to be able to make that show. And it's the only way really that One Direction could get any bigger. It's the only way we could get more successful really, isn't it? By being good on you're own."
