Attention Directioners: We’ve got some crazy news! Now that Zayn quit One Direction, the band may be getting their own reality show to find a brand new fifth member, according to a new report!

The man who created One Direction, Simon Cowell, 55, supported Zayn Malik‘s decision to leave the band and he’s already looking for ways to cash in on his departure, the report claims. The plan is to create a reality show where American and British guys audition for a chance to replace Zayn in the band — we have all the details!

One Direction Reality Show To Replace Zayn Malik?

“[Simon] is picturing a kind of Who Wants to Be a Boybander? type show, with auditions in both England and America,” an insider spilled to Star magazine.

That would be crazy! We’re not sure how we feel about having a fifth member join the band but who are we kidding, we’d definitely tune in to watch the show!

Even though Simon was the one who convinced Zayn to join One Direction in the first place, he’s set on using his departure as an opportunity to make the band even bigger.

“1D is his baby, but he’s not sad about Zayn quitting — he actually sees this as a huge opportunity to make the band even bigger,” the source added.

Harry may need a bit of convincing before being on board with this reality show idea. As HollywoodLife previously reported, Harry is taking Zayn quitting the hardest out of all the boys.

“They all feel betrayed by Zayn, but especially Harry. Harry was always his biggest supporter and close friend,” a source close to 1D told EXCLUSIVELY.

Even worse, our insider shared that “they feel like Zayn is acting like he’s above them, like he’s too good for the band.”
