Zayn of course left the group last month, much to the disappointment of Directioners around the world.

The remaining four members recently revealed on 'The Late Late Show' that they too were taken aback by Zayn's sudden departure: 'At first, we were a little bit angry, we were surprised. But I think we kind of all knew the general vibe that Zayn was feeling," they said on the show.
