The 1D boys have just released new single Live While We're Young

One Direction have rubbished claims that they’re on the verge of splitting up.

Reports emerged over the weekend that 1D were struggling with the pressures of being in one of the world’s biggest boy bands and with keeping up their ‘squeaky-clean’ image – but they insist this isn’t true.

‘It’s utter made up rubbish,’ a representative tells us.

It’s been clear this week that the lads are still passionate about making music with each other.

Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik and Niall Horan have been busy trying to get their new single Live While We’re Young to the No 1 spot on the UK Top 40.

‘Hi guys getting nervous about Sunday lets push for another UK number 1 it would mean so much to get a number 1 here at home ! We can do this,’ Tweets Louis, 20.

Niall, 19, adds: ‘Guys its gona be super tight this week in chart! Make sure ya keep up the great work! #scarystuff.’
