Harry Styles is favoured by bookies Ladbrokes to embark on a solo project away from One Direction this year.
As one fifth of global super-group One Direction, and arguably the most popular, rumours are circulating that Harry’s set to fly solo away from the band and the bookies make it just 4/1 he appears in a television advert by himself before the year is over.
There’s also a 10/1 chance he stars in a movie this year or releases a solo single, and should Harry get too big for his boots it’s 12/1 he breaks millions of girls’ hearts by leaving One Direction before the end of 2012.
After fellow popstar and namesake Harry Judd won last year’s Strictly Come Dancing it’s 20/1 the One Directioner joins this year’s cast and completes a Harry double on the show.
Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “Harry’s quickly becoming a star in his own right and we anticipate it won’t be long before he breaks away from the others.”
Speaking to the Daily Star yesterday, a supposed source close to Harry revealed: “He’s been offered a big solo project, so he flew out to Los Angeles without the rest of the boy band.
“He’s been in America filming something. It may have been an advert or a film – I can’t say exactly what – but it’s worth a lot of money.”
