Take That Urge One Direction To "Stay As A Unit"
Amid reports the 1D lads are working on solo projects, Gary Barlow and Co offer their advice to the boyband of the moment...
After Gary Barlow joked that the 1D lads "should be giving us advice", Howard Donald went on to tell MTV News while promoting new track for movie Kingsman: The Secret Service: "I think they should stay as a unit.
"When somebody has a problem in the band, it's always something not to be ignored and to always discuss it by themselves as a five, not even necessarily with management.
"Just be themselves and get to know each other - I'm sure they know each other very well, but we don't know what happens behind closed doors … we don't know who gets on and who doesn't get on."
He added: "I guess they're all great friends and it's about talking to each other", with bandmate Mark Owen agreeing: "Look after each other and take the time to ask…
"Now and again, it's just worth checking in with yourself and checking in with everybody."
Barlow concluded: "I've spent quite a bit of time with all of them really - they are all great fun.
"The one thing I always think about with them is they are enjoying it and that's right, enjoy it while it's here - you don't know what the future is for any of us."
Kingsman: The Secret Service is due for release in the UK on January 29.
