Harry Styles refuses to take up ballet.

The 19-year-old One Direction star was ordered to learn the popular dance form by his osteopath in a bid to combat his back injury but he opted for yoga instead.

Talking on chat show 'The Jonathan Ross Show', he said: ''I have a bad back and I went to see and an osteopath. He told me to do ballet. But I didn't. I'm doing yoga instead.''

The hunk's legs are different lengths with one measuring half-an-inch more than the other and this has caused him back pain.

His bandmates Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik teased him about the injury which Harry believed was caused by a heavy paper round he did when he was younger.

It was previously believed that Harry had taken up ballet to get the moves like The Rolling Stones frontman Sir Mick Jagger and he decided to copy part of his fitness regime following a chat with the music legend's long-standing trainer and physio Torje Eike.
