Harry Styles reveals his childhood idol: 'He's a national treasure'
One Direction superstar Harry Styles has revealed that David Beckham was a huge influence on him growing up and he was lucky enough to meet the sportsman recently.
Speaking to Britain's OK! magazine, the heartthrob explained that the footballer was a huge inspiration to him as a youngster: "I think he was everybody's idol when I was growing up."
Styles went on to add that Beckham should really be knighted at some point in his career for everything he has achieved and given back: "I think he really deserves it... It makes sense because he's such a national treasure. To be honest, I already thought he was Sir David Beckham anyway!"
