One Direction: “It’s natural to take a break after this schedule”

One Direction are in the North East for their last Newcastle show tonight as part of their ‘On The Road Again’ tour.

Ahead of their final gig at the Metro Radio Arena ITV News caught up with Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson to ask about their planned break.

Stars Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan think taking a break after their world tour will be ‘a shock to the system’.

Louis Tomlinson has defended the band’s decision to take a break after their current world tour.

The One Direction singer says that is makes sense after such a hectic five years of shows. Louis, who was speaking to ITV News Tyne Tees backstage in Newcastle, added that they will ‘definitely get back together’.

So what are their plans? Watch the videos.

ITV News also had the chance to get them to ‘show-off’ their Geordie accents. Watch the video
