Simon Cowell recently opened up about his biggest regret from working with One Direction.

Speaking exclusively to Steven Bartlett on The Diary of a CEO podcast on Monday, June 10 about his search for the latest boy band, the 64-year-old shared his thoughts about the band's future.

He said: "If one band member says for whatever reason that they don’t want to tour, it can stop the others from touring.”

Sharing his regret over not owning the name himself, Cowell added that if he owned the brand, “you could do a tour with three of them" rather than making all the original members come back.

"If you’re listening, I’ll buy it back from you," the Britain Got Talent judge quipped.

However, when asked about the brand’s revival nearly a decade into hiatus, Cowell simply said, “I doubt it.”

Although remaining members of the band, including Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, and Liam Payne have expressed interest in a potential reunion, no official statement has been released to support the claim.

In addition, Cowell reflected on the band’s early days, realizing that the members had star power.

Reminiscing about a time from when One Direction was on a beach in Spain and “everyone [was] looking at them."

He quipped: "It’s unbelievable. Everyone is looking at these five boys as if they’re already stars.”
