It’s hard to imagine a world without One Direction, however the boys originally auditioned for X Factor 2010 separately and didn’t even win the competition! Now, with 61 album and single no.1’s worldwide and as the first British band since The Beatles to have 2 number 1 albums in the same year in the U.S, it’s safe to say the cheeky chaps are taking over the world.
They haven’t just hit the headlines with their music – their personal lives are constantly in the limelight. Household name, Harry Edward Styles, caused controversy by dating TV presenter Caroline Flack – 15 years his senior. The 19-year-old has also been linked to model Cara Delevingne, Made In Chelsea’s Caggie Dunlop and of course, Taylor Swift.
So you may think you already know everything there is to know about loveable heartthrob Harry Styles but think again! Here are eight little known facts about the One Direction hottie.
#1 – Harry Wanted To Be A Physiotherapist
Before auditioning for X Factor, Harry planned to study Law, Sociology and Business A-levels and had dreams of eventually becoming a physiotherapist!
When asked what he’d be doing now if he wasn’t in One Direction, Harry said: ‘I’d be studying I guess, I always wanted to be a physiotherapist and before I was in the band, I was studying, so I’d probably be working hard and studying for that.’
Well we’re all glad he made the X Factor audition and is now one fifth of the country’s favourite boy band – although I wouldn’t complain if he was massaging out the knots in my back either…
