It's been almost two years since One Direction announced their hiatus and Louis Tomlinson has come out to reflect on when they first discussed the idea.
In an interview with The Guardian, he said "It wasn't necessarily a nice conversation."
Tomlinson, along with Liam Payne and Niall Horan are on their way to releasing their debut solo albums this year, following fellow One Direction star Harry Styles, and former member Zayn Malik.
He said while with One Direction that he was "forgettable, to a certain degree," and that the other members all had a place.
"The others have always been...Like Niall, for example. He's the most lovely guy in the world. Happy-go-lucky Irish, no sense of arrogance. And he's fearless," Tomlinson said. "There are times I've thought, 'I'd have a bit of that.'"
"Zayn, back in the day. He could relate to me on a nerves level. In the first year we were both the least confident. But Zayn has a fantastic voice and for him it was always about owning that," Tomlinson continued. "Liam always had a good stage presence, same as Harry, they've both got that ownership. Harry comes across very cool. Liam's all about getting the crowd going, doing a bit of dancing...And then there's me."
