Harry Tipped To Be The Robbie Williams Of The 1D Split…Will They Split For Good?

After announcing their scheduled hiatus, One Direction are 8/1 with William Hill to bag the Christmas number one single this year while they are 4/1 to get back together in 2016 and release a single.

Harry is being tipped for superstardom with the bookies making him Even money favourite to sell the most records as a solo artist while Zayn is 2/1 second favourite.

“Harry is the cheeky chappy of the group and they are the ones who often sell the most solo records,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “Just look at Robbie Williams and Justin Timberlake.”

It is 7/4 that the group are not back together by the end of 2017 – the year they said they would return from their hiatus.

“There will be a lot of fans devastated at the news that the band are set to take a break but just imagine what they would be like if the hiatus became indefinite,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
