According to rumours circulating online, One Direction are set to hire a brand new member for their next music video! But who could it be?

We’ll give you a clue – the rumoured sixth member would be both the youngest and smallest member of One Direction. Have you guessed it yet? Don’t worry if not, because we’re going to tell you right now.

Zayn, Harry, Liam, Louis and Niall will apparently be joined in their next music video by… Eric Cowell. That’s right, Simon Cowell’s son might be starring in One Direction’s next official video video. How cute would that be?

Speaking to The Sun, an insider said: “Simon was saying how much Eric loves playing on his little drum set and how he is already into music. He said he’d like to see his son in a One Direction video and thinks it’d be hilarious.”

Watch out Josh Devine, it looks you’ve got competition from a new drummer and he’s coming for your job.

The source did however admit that Simon probably wasn’t being serious so who knows? We might never see Eric join the band for a day but if it was done in the right way, we do think that it could actually be pretty funny.

For example, Eric’s appearance could be quite fitting if the boys ever decided to release a music video for ‘Act My Age’. It’d relate to the track’s lyrics and after all, our boys certainly can be big kids at heart sometimes.

Would you like Simon’s son to be in the next 1D video? Let us know below!
