One Direction fans have had a rotten time lately: with yesterday's news that the band are taking a hiatus, and then today's realisation that it's been five months since Zayn Malik left.

Just one day after 1D confirmed plans to take a break next year, a hashtag started on Twitter today ª#5monthswithoutzayn" as fans around the globe shared their thoughts on life post-Zayn. And, as you'd expect, there were plenty of funny / sad / interesting reactions.

Here's a few of our favourite:

1. The ones who don't hold a grudge and still love Zayn.

2. The cheerleaders for the rest of the fandom

3. The ones who are still upset

4. The ones who just want to see Zayn happy

5. The eternally optimistic ones
