One Direction 2012: Harry Styles ditched his band mates to fly to UK in Taylor Swift’s private jet! And Union J’s George Shelley insists he’s not copying Harry’s hairdo!

As fans of One Direction will know, the lads Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne, performed at last night’s Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball, which given they were in America just hours before, was quite a feat of logistics!

However, it’s been revealed today that Harry decided not to travel back to the UK with his 1D band mates and instead, he travelled in supersonic luxury in his girlfriend Taylor Swift’s private jet.

And according to The Sun, Harry’s band mates are becoming increasingly naffed off with the amount of time Harry’s spending with Taylor. As we reported yesterday, he also blew off a tattoo date with Louis and Zayn in order to take Taylor out.

A source close to the 1D lads told the paper, “Her presence has stirred tensions in the band as Harry’s now spending most of his time with her, and jetted into the gig on her private jet instead of coming in with the rest of the lads.”

However, while at the Jingle Bell Ball – where JLS, Little Mix, Cheryl Cole and several other top music stars also performed – the 1D boys took time out to discuss the fact that they’re going to record a cover version of Blondie’s hit One Way Or Another for next year’s Comic Relief single.

Harry said, “We can’t wait to perform our version of this iconic pop song and raise as much money as possible.”

And Zayn added, “At school Red Nose Day was a big deal. Me and my friends used to really look forward to it.

“One year we all came in in our pyjamas which was pretty cool.”

However, what Union J singer George Shelley isn’t finding very cool is being compared to Harry, and being accused of having copied his floppy hairstyle…

George told TV Biz, “The look I have now is the look I had three years ago.

“When One Direction came on the scene, people were saying, ‘Harry Styles looks like you,’ and then it started being, ‘You look like Harry Styles.’”

But he added, “One Direction are so massive that it can’t be anything but good to be compared to them.

“To have half of their success would be wicked.”

Indeed it would. Here’s a look at 1D’s performance last night…
