The hiatus has been dark and full of terrors, but lucky for us the boys have been keeping themselves busy and in turn, satisfying our obsession.
Harry has been channelling his inner soldier, Louis has been battling for the custody of his bubs and Liam sparked a whirlwind romance all while Niall, our little kween, has been golfing his heart out.
All the boys have had ~solo~ rumours following them around, with Harry signing a solo record deal and Liam having new music teased. Now Neil has done his first solo magazine cover... and can we just say baaaaeee!
Granted, he's promoting his golfing career over his music career. But we're A-OK with that.
Niall appeared on the cover of Today's Golfer alongside pro Justin Rose, with his white pants handy.
Keep slayin' boo.
