One Direction 'Given Three Months Off Work'
Boy band members reportedly allowed to relax until middle of March...
While it's still Boxing Day and many of us won't be going back to work or school for more than a week yet, the members of One Direction are reportedly getting a lot more time off than that.
The Sun newspaper claims that the boy band are getting a whopping THREE MONTHS off work as a reward for their efforts over the last year.
It reports that they will be left to their own devices until mid-March, when they will begin rehearsals for their next tour.
A source told the paper: "The lads are dead on their feet. They've completed a huge world tour and done endless promo in between.
"They approached management to work out a deal. Given their success, they could hardly disagree and understood entirely. It was all sorted on good terms."
1D have performed 131 dates on their Take Me Home world tour and have also launched new album Midnight Memories in 2013.
Niall Horan was recently struggling to get back to Ireland for Christmas.
