We've definitely been feeling the loss of Zayn Malik from the One Direction family, but, according to a body language expert analyzing the band's new Zayn-free promo pic, the 1D guys are feeling conflicted too.

Modest Management recently released the new four-piece 1D pic on their website and the guys don't look all that excited. Does it have anything to do with Zayn leaving though?

Psychologist Peter Collett thinks so, telling The Guardian, "If we were to take a pair of scissors and physically remove one of the four from this image, then it would not look like they were engaged. It's what is called 'The Cut Out Principle' - something that was often applied to images of Charles and Diana when they were photographed walking together."

He continued, "In this image of One Direction, they're not interacting, they're not taking their cues from one another. There are other signs of detachment - Harry has his arms crossed, a classic barrier signal, while Louis has his fist in his hand - something we tend to do when we're controlling unconscious feelings of frustration. Liam, meanwhile, has his hands in his pockets - which is either super-casual or a way of concealing your hands, ie not exposing what you're thinking."

No word on what's going on with Niall's weird mannequin hand, though.
