One Direction star Harry Styles joked that he would be stepping out with 'Loose Women' star and recent Celebrity Big Brother winner Denise Welch at the Brit Awards on Tuesday evening (21 February, 2012).
Host James Corden had joined the One Direction boys on their table following their Best British Single win, and joked that they should only be drinking squash (the table was awash with bottles of wine, champagne and beers). When the boy-band attempted to hide the alcohol, Cordon asked frontman Harry, "Can you confirm or deny the rumours that you'll be stepping out with Denise Welsh?". After a long pause, Harry joked, "It's True", with Corden yelling, "It's true - he loves a Loose Woman". The One Direction singer subsequently slapped himself in the face, and began banging his head on the table. Styles recently hit the headlines after starting up a relationship with X Factor presenter Caroline Flack, who is 15 years his senior. After being snapped leaving Flack's London house numerous times, he reportedly ended the relationship though took to Twitter to tell fans it had been a mutual decision.
It was a huge night at the Brit Awards for Simon Cowell's boy-band, who scooped the Best British Single award despite Adele being the overwhelming favourite for the statuette.
