“He is like a natural, a handsome guy and is good. And he needs to work on his skills a little. We had a wonderful time making the video. The guys were really great for me.”

Styles is not the only One Direction singer to be linked to a movie role recently. Louis Tomlinson, 24, is believed to be the leading candidate to play soccer star Jamie Vardy in the Hollywood movie documenting the Leicester striker’s incredible rags to riches story.
