FANS of boy band star Harry Styles headed in One Direction this weekend as the 17-year-old enjoyed a day out at Southport’s Premier Bowl.

Onlookers told the Visiter that hundreds of teenage girls flocked to the Ocean Plaza site on Saturday as word quickly spread of his arrival via Facebook and friends.
Avid fan Melissa Pye met her heartthrob on the day.

She said: “Harry was great, he was happy to pose for a photo and signed autographs for lots of people there.

“I am so pleased to have met him, it has to be the best day of my life so far.

“I think the reason Harry is so popular with people is that he is a normal guy, someone who you could have gone to school with.”

Sarah Taylor, a manager at Premier Bowl, said: “We were not surprised that Harry turned up to bowl because socially Premier Bowl and Laser is a regular haunt of his.

“Often he plays pool with his friends if bowling lanes or the Laser Quest are unavailable.

“He also pops in with the owner’s daughter Emily when he is back home from touring.”

Harry, who has recently passed his driving test, had been taking his new Range Rover Sport for a spin. He signed autographs for fans and posed for photographs before leaving to prepare for starting the next leg of the One Direction tour.
