Harry Styles - Harry Styles' mum uses son's name to sell car

Harry Styles' mum used her son's name to get £6,000 for her Mini Cooper.

Anne Cox advertised the car, which the One Direction singer bought her as a Mother's Day present last year, on online auction website eBay as ''owned by Harry Styles' mum'' in an attempt to gain larger bids for the vehicle, and she even promised to meet successful the buyer as an extra incentive for people to bid.

The vehicle's description on eBay read: ''Harry Styles of One Direction bought this stunning car for his mum Anne as a Mother's Day present in 2011.

''The lucky winner can have the car handed over by Anne who will be delighted to meet the new owner.

''The car is located at my garage and not at Anne's house, so please do not come here expecting to see Anne.

''That privilege will be reserved for the lucky winning bidder. Don't miss out on this unique car and photo opportunity.''

The motor was snapped up last Thursday (15.11.12) by a woman from Newcastle upon Tyne, North East England, but Anne ensured she wasn't inundated by messages from fans of her 18-year-old son by passing the control of the sale over to her car dealer friend Dave, who sold Harry a Range Rover earlier this year.

Dave, who has known Harry since he was a youngster, told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''It was a woman from Newcastle who bought it. I think Harry's name caught her eye.

''Anne will be meeting her when she comes down to pick it up.''

While Dave insisted he wouldn't deal with ''time wasters'', Harry's sister Gemma revealed there were a few ''worrying'' bids from confused fans.

She wrote on twitter: ''Several worrying responses. You do know it's illegal to sell people?''
