Caroline Flack Talks About 'Adorable' Harry Styles

Caroline Flack is risking the wrath of those pesky One Direction fans once again by opening up about her time with the "adorable" Harry Styles.

The Xtra Factor presenter came under fire when her romance with the teen heartthrob hit the headlines last year.

They split in January after Caroline was bombarded with nasty tweets and even death threats from Harry's crazed devotees.

She kept mostly schtum about their fling, but now she's gushed about her time with the floppy-haired hunk - and is still shocked by the interest surrounding their relationship.

She tells You magazine: "We remain very fond of each other because first and foremost we are friends. We got very close for a time but that's between me and Harry; what happened is between me and him, and then, you know, we decided it was best to be just friends.

"Harry is adorable, he is a nice person. He was nice to me; we were nice to each other. We are still friends, he's brilliant, he is so much fun.

"When you go to a public event you know there are going to be photographers there, it's their job. But it's weird when they are outside your house and when they turn up at your mum's house, and when you are driving down your street and you have to swerve because there are three cars behind you and three motorbikes following you wherever you go. But I put myself in the public eye - I have my dream job, so I can't complain. If it got too much I would give it up, so obviously it hasn't got too much."

And she finally opens up about the other Harry in her life - and denies she ever dated the red-haired prince.

She adds: "Prince Harry is a friend of mine but there was never anything romantic between us. His life is so much under the spotlight that I don't want to put any more pressure on him by talking about him other than to say he is a great guy."
