Nathan Sykes: 'The Wanted Split Will Be Lengthy'

Boy band member concedes that they won't be reuniting any time soon...

Nathan Sykes has spoken about the recent decision by boy band The Wanted to split up.

The heart throb, tipped for solo success in the wake of the split, told Maximum Pop that he wasn't holding his breath for a reunion.

He said: "It is just a break at the moment for everyone to go off and do their own thing for a bit, but you never know what's gonna happen.

"It could be a long break or it could be quite a short one, but it's probably going to be quite a lengthy one if I'm honest.

"Obviously you never know what's gonna happen in the future. We might go out for a couple of drinks, and in a few minutes' time say 'Well actually, we'd all like to get back in the studio' so you never know what's gonna happen."

However the 20-year-old star stressed that the five members of the band are all pumped to get out on the road for their final dates together.

"Everyone's really looking forward to the tour. They really can't wait to get out on the road and see all the fans and this tour for us is just like a big old thank you to all the fans for their amazing support they've given us over the last like four or five years."

Nathan's bandmate Max George broke the news that the pair of them are both going it alone a month ago.
