One Direction Gives First Interview Since Zayn Malik Quit on 'Late Show With James Corden' (Video)

One Direction takes a seat on the couch for their appearance on The Late Show With James Corden on Thursday evening (May 14) in Los Angeles.

The group – Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and Louis Tomlinson – gave their first interview since Zayn Malik quit the group.

“There’s a bit back and forth. We’re on good terms with him. I’ve never been very good at biting my tongue,” Louis said about his Twitter feud with Zayn. “Yeah, it’s all resolved.”

Liam said about him leaving, “At first we were a little bit angry, we were surprised. I think we all knew the general vibe that Zayn was feeling. You could sort of tell. There’s certain parts of this job Zayn loved and there’s certain parts…we were angry at first and then it was just more disappointed. We wish him the best of luck with whatever he gets up to. There’s no hard feelings.”

When asked if they thought of dissolving the group altogether, they said “no.” And Harry said they never thought about replacing Zayn either. Watch below!

Liam Payne and Niall Horan make their way off a plane while touching down at Heathrow Airport on Sunday (April 5) in London, England.

The duo and their One Direction bandmates – Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson – recently opened up about Zayn Malik quitting the group.

“It’s been a tough few weeks, probably the toughest since the band was formed five years ago,” Liam told The Sun (via People). “We’re gutted that Zayn chose to leave, but now after a few performances as a four piece, we’re feeling confident and are determined to carry on stronger than ever.”

Niall added, “”We’re looking forward to seeing all our fans on the tour this year. All we want to do is make them proud and return their faith in us with a brilliant tour and an amazing new album.”

Harry also opened up about working on the new record. “It’s very exciting to be working on our fifth album,” he said, with Louis adding, “All four of us are 100 percent committed to staying in One Direction and we want to thank the fans for being so incredible during this time.”

Liam Payne Says 'It's Okay To Be Sad & Upset' Over Zayn Malik Leaving One Direction

Liam Payne has broken his silence on Twitter to write a sincere letter to One Direction fans after Zayn Malik announced he was leaving the band.

Read what the 21-year-old musician wrote on Twitter:

“In light of recent events, I think this is important to say. For the past five years now I’ve been part of something so special I don’t think any of us really understand, something that can mean the world to people and put a smile on the face of our fans even in the darkest times. To a lot of people it’s just a bunch of silly kids in a band but to the people involved it means so much more. this last week has been some of the worst times, possibly the worst it’s something we are all deeply saddened by.”

“It’s sad to think for the time being we won’t grace the stage as five bros, or have the same fun on a tour bus or laughs in a hotel together that we have over the years but I’m super sure us and Zayn will always remain the closest friends. I guess what I’m really trying to sat is it’s far from over. When we very 1st became successful we all agreed that one direction had become much bigger than each individual member that’s why I feel like right now it’s ok to be sad and upset but I do ask everyone who is a fan of us to please keep ur faith in us. I’m sure there’s a lot more to come.

“All love, Liam.”
