According to Page Six reports last week, the boys have been working on a secret project to celebrate their 10th birthday on 23rd July, with ideas including a new single and TV special – although a tour has apparently been ruled out.
Liam Payne has got Directioners all over the world excited as he confirms One Direction will be reuniting in honour of their 10th anniversary.
But it seems as though Liam has dashed any hopes of Zayn Malik joining in the reunion fun.
Sitting down for an Instagram live DJ Alesso, Liam admitted that he’s been chatting to former bandmates Niall Horan, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson.
“I did speak to Niall again on FaceTime today, and he was outside on his balcony sunbathing and whatever. He’s in London as well,” he said. “Most of us are in London. We’ve been trying to arrange the first group FaceTime at the moment,” before adding: “You can come in and fill in for Zayn and join the band”.
That seems to be all we’re getting for now though, as Liam said: “I can’t say too much… Louis told me off for revealing a bit of our plans the other day. So you’re going to have the group telling me off on the group chat.”
So, it doesn’t sound as though Zayn is currently on board. Fans also noticed that Harry, Niall, Louis and Liam all recently re-followed Zayn on social media, but Zayn hasn’t yet followed them back. Others have spotted that Zayn is now listed as a member of One Direction on Google again, and also appears in the band’s official Apple Music photo.
Zayn famously quit the boy band back in 2015 to pursue a solo career, launching his debut solo album Mind of Mine in March 2016.
Barry’s Is Launching Virtual 35-Minute Classes Led by Trainers
As we settle into this new normal of staying at home and social distancing to stop the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), one of the biggest changes to people’s routines is missing the in-person fitness community that gyms and fitness studios offer. Sure, there are plenty of at-home workouts available to stream online, on apps, or on Instagram Live, but it’s just not the same as joining a room full of other motivated, fit-minded people sweating it out while an encouraging (and sometimes tough!) instructor keeps you on track.
But for Barry’s fans, there’s good news. The fitness studio, which has a loyal following, has announced that it is now offering 35-minute virtual classes that will be streamed live via Zoom. To participate, you will need to download Zoom, if you don’t have it already (how else have you been doing virtual happy hours?). You can sign up for the classes directly on Barry’s website or app, and you will receive a confirmation email that includes a Zoom link 20 minutes prior to class. There will be 24 classes available a day, so you’re bound to find one that works with your schedule.
Some are bodyweight-only, while others may require equipment, such as dumbbells, mini bands, resistance bands, and/or booty bands. Barry’s is selling its Band Together Fit Kit that features the three different types of bands used in classes in red, which is beginner/lower-resistance or blue, which is intermediate/medium-resistance, both for $45 a set.
Each class is $20, but if you already have an existing membership or credits on your account, those will work towards the virtual classes. If you bought a class package that’s set to expire while studios are still closed, the studio is extending those packages beyond the duration of the closures. If you have a membership, you can reach out to your studio to have your membership frozen.
