The Wanted has once again started spreading gay rumors about One Direction.

According to Huffington Post, The Wanted appeared on Watch What Happens Live, an entertainment interview show hosted by openly gay TV personality Andy Cohen, when Cohen asked the band who from One Direction would be the first to come out of the closet.

The leader singer Max George, who himself has appeared on the cover of various gay magazines, apparently immediately responded: ‘Louis’.

This is hardly the first instance of gay-banter between the two boy bands.

In April of this year, The Wanted’s Tom Parker engaged in a Twitter feud with Tomlinson saying: ‘I’ll enjoy the press even more when you come clean#narnia #itgetsbetter.’

Tomlinson called Parker ‘the biggest twat on Twitter.’

Tomlinson, who is reportedly dating model and student Eleanor Calder, has previously said the ‘upsetting’ gay rumors are affecting the band’s dynamic.

He previously posted on Twitter: ‘Still months on reading ridiculous conspiracy theories. It’s upsetting that I have to read them daily. Thank god for the lovely people on here.’

He then added: ‘I love all our true fans so fucking much! That’s a promise! I assure you all I’m always true to myself! #embarrassing tweet

Gay rumors have circulated around One Direction for months, from Harry Styles and Niall Horan allegedly kissing mouth-to-mouth, to openly gay and former N’SYNC member Lance Bass saying ‘statistically speaking’ one of the One Direction boys must be gay.
