One Direction could become the world’s first billion dollar boyband , which – with the current exchange rate in pounds - works out as A LOT OF MONEY.
US website Business Insider punched some numbers into one of those fancy sin-tan-cos calculators and estimated the singers’ accounts will be booming.
They predict by the end of the year, they will gross the £775 million in just 12 months.
The experts who probably had more than one pencil case in school wrote: "The table stakes have been increased dramatically.
"And based on our back-of-the-envelope calculations, the hottest band on the planet could be the first billion dollar boy band when 2014 is in the books."
It's claimed the worldwide concert tours will be the biggest earners, but the boys’ cash intake from their albums, DVDs, official merchandise and new fragrance and makeup range is not to be sniffed at.
Unless of course, you're sniffing the massive stacks of £50 notes, obviously.
The five champs are tipped to earn £113 million from the box office when their highly-anticipated film This Is Us is released at the end of August.
But while Niall Horan covers his natural roots with dodgy bleach and blonde highlights, his brother insists no amount of money will change where him.
Greg Horan said: “I think he will cope well whatever happens. Niall doesn’t spend that much money or talk about money, it’s not a big thing in his life."
Speaking to the Irish Sun he said: “Obviously it’s amazing if the band go on to make a billion in a year and I for one hope they do - but it will not change Niall, I know that much.”
