Simon Cowell reportedly wanted One Direction to take a break before Zayn Malik decided to quit the band! In a recent interview, his Britain's Got Talent costar Amanda Holden let it slip that someone close to the guys wanted them to take a vacation because he could tell that they needed a rest.
"This is what I kind of heard, I thought there was going to be a little break," she said.
"I mean that's before any of that happened. Before Zayn leaving or anything. I thought there was going to be a break so they could all have a rest. I think somebody would have liked them to have taken a break..."

When asked if she was talking about someone close to her, she avoided answering the question, saying, "I just think it would have been better... Moving on!"
Still, this wouldn't be surprising. Simon said in December that he was worried that the band would burn out if they kept up with their busy schedule. We're just glad that the rest of the guys are currently on a two-month hiatus from tour! It seems like they're relaxing and having fun. It's too bad that their break didn't happen before the Bradford Bad Boy left the group.
Do you think that 1D should take a break regardless? Tell us in the comments!
