Zayn Malik is open to the prospect of reuniting with One Direction.
The 23-year-old singer walked away from the chart-topping boyband last year and while he has barely spoken to the other band members in recent months, he hopes they remain friends.
Asked if he would reunite with the band in a few years' time, Zayn said: "Who knows? I don't know. If the time was right and that was the thing to do, I would make that decision when it came around."
Although Zayn insisted he has "no beef" with the other boys in the group - Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Niall Horan - he revealed he had barely kept in contact with them.
Asked if he had spoken to his former bandmates, Zayn told the Sunday Times newspaper: "I got an email. I don't even wanna say names."
Zayn, who has since become a solo artist, admitted he had simply grown tired of being in the band.
He shared: "By that point, I I just knew that I wanted to go. I was fed up. I didn't wanna do that any more."
