Everywhere Harry Styles goes, hundreds of screaming girls chase after him in a starstruck frenzy.
So it was understandable that there was only One Direction this 20-year-old lad wanted to go: through a secret exit to avoid yet another fan stampede. After partying into the early hours of Thursday morning with his friends, Harry nipped out the back of London’s prestigious nightclub The Box in Soho.
He looked fresh-faced and not too fatigued as he made a dash for it in his indie attire. Harry wore a white and peach striped blouse with embroidery, unbuttoned to reveal his cross necklace, over black jeans. He added a black fedora hat and beige sued boots to polish off his look.
Perhaps he thought that by making a sneaky exit he could avoid another unfortunate situation like the one that took place earlier that week.
On Monday, a teenager ran after Harry in a bid to get a selfie with her idol outside the London Coliseum, where he presented a British Fashion Award to Emma Watson.
Clad in high-heels, the poor girl took a tumble and landed headfirst in a pile of manure which had been deposited outside the exclusive theatre by a passing police horse.

Too high: Her shoes were hardly suitable for running after her idol…
Her devotion was sadly not rewarded by the Steal My Girl hit-maker, who quickly jumped into an awaiting car.
Meanwhile, on Tuesday, Harry was reportedly spotted with his ex Taylor Swift after the exclusive Victoria’s Secret show.
According to the Mirror, a source said: ‘All eyes were on Harry and Taylor when they turned up. People were desperate to see how they reacted to one another.

‘It was especially awkward as only a few hours earlier, Taylor had been performing a track that is so blatantly about him.
‘But they were actually fine. It seemed like they’d buried the hatchet. The drinks were flowing until 3am, when they snuck out of a rear exit five minutes apart to avoid being pictured together.’
The couple dated at the tail end of 2012, but broke up following a row during a break on Necker Island in January 2013.
