Take That star Gary took to Twitter as social media went into meltdown following Zayn's exit from the boyband.
Despite Zayn's departure, Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson will continue as a four-piece.
Former X Factor judge Gary, said: "Sending my best to all the 1D boys! #thatters we've all been there haven't we?!!!!!"
Gary then agreed with a fan, who said Take That are proof that "the show will still go on".
Gary is, of course, speaking from experience, as Robbie Williams quit Take That back in 1995.
Take That was loved by fans all over the world, and Robbie's exit came as a huge shock, but the band - Gary, Mark Owen, Jason Orange and Howard Donald - continued as a four-piece before deciding to split a year later.
In 2005, Take That reunited and continued to achieve chart success. Robbie rejoined the group in 2010 but left again last year.
In September 2014, Jason decided to quit the band, and Gary, Mark and Howard now continue as a three-piece.
Zayn announced his decision to quit in a statement released yesterday evening, where he explained he wants to live life like a "normal 22-year-old".
One Direction supported his decision, saying: "We're really sad to see Zayn go, but we totally respect his decision and send him all our love for the future. The past five years have been beyond amazing, we've gone through so much together, so we will always be friends.
"The four of us will now continue," they added. "We're looking forward to recording the new album and seeing all the fans on the next stage of the world tour."
