Putting all speculations to rest, One Direction singer Niall Horan has confirmed that he has formed a new band called One Lad and 2 Dads, along with comedian John Bishop and TV presenter Paddy McGuinness. Making the announcement on Twitter next to their first official band photograph, Bishop wrote: “New boy band -- me, Niall Horan and Paddy McGuinness... We are called One Lad and 2 Dads,” reports mirror.co.uk.
One Direction is currently on an extended hiatus. Former member Zayn Malik has also launched his solo career after quitting the popular British band in 2015. He released his debut album Mind Of Mine in March 2016.
Earlier this week, there were reports that Niall may go solo. He was reportedly in talks with band’s label Syco to sign a deal for his own music.
