Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson will join James on the sofa on Thursday 14 May, and "reveal a few surprises" on the US chat show.

"James is one of our best mates and we're so proud of the massive success his show is having in America," Liam told People magazine. "We are currently working on a few surprises with James and his team that we hope our fans will enjoy. It's going to be a great night!"

Last month, Zayn sensationally quit One Direction after five years in the band.

In a statement, Zayn explained: "My life with One Direction has been more than I could ever have imagined. But, after five years, I feel like it is now the right time for me to leave the band. I'd like to apologise to the fans if I've let anyone down, but I have to do what feels right in my heart.

"I am leaving because I want to be a normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight. I know I have four friends for life in Louis, Liam, Harry and Niall. I know they will continue to be the best band in the world."

1D - who said they respected his decision to leave - have continued as a four-piece and are currently working on their new studio album.
