The One Direction singer is said to be on the top of producers’ wishlists to make a cameo appearance in the forthcoming film adaptation of ‘Absolutely Fabulous’, which begins filming next month.

An insider tells The Sun: “Jennifer [Saunders] has told friends she wants Harry to be part of the movie. She’s got some great cameos in the bag already, but wants to give the film a young, hipster edge.”

It’s even been said he could play himself, as a potential love interest for Joanna Lumley’s notorious ‘Ab Fab’ character, Patsy Stone.

The source adds: “If she can find a way to work him into the script, then Patsy could have a new bit of totty to chase.”

The addition of Harry to the star-studded cast follows Jennifer Saunders’ confirmation that Kate Moss would also be appearing.

Jennifer told The Mirror last month: “I can confirm that Kate does have a part in the forthcoming movie.

“It’s not yet decided whether she’ll have a speaking part or not, but she’ll definitely be in it.

“She’s a big fan of the show and we’re pals, so - aside from the fact she’s the definitive model - it was a no-brainer.”

It has been previously said that Harry hopes to turn his attention to acting in the future, particularly given that 1D are about to take a year-long break.

Cara Delevingne has also been tipped to be putting in an appearance, alongside Lulu and Emma Bunton.
