ONE DIRECTION NEWS KLAXON! Harry Styles In Recording Solo Material Shocker (But Is He A Robbie Or A Geri?)

Hold THE front page! According to reports Harry Styles is set to go solo. Isn't that just kick-you-in-the-crotch-spit-on-your-neck fantastic? Rumour has it the One Direction heart-throb has been spending time in the studio sans Zayn, Niall, Louis and Liam working on his own material.

"He loves messing around with some of the new songs he's been working on," a pal apparently told The Mirror. "He's bounced some ideas off his friend Ed Sheeran and has ­already laid down some vocals." Hold up! He's bounced some ideas of Ed Sheeran? This is too awkward to be true.

We always knew Harry would be the 1D flaker, but, honestly we didn't expect it so soon *weeps*. Last October Mr Flake 0.1 Robbie Williams said he would be surprised if Harry was not beginning to contemplate a solo career.

"I remember being 21, seeing George Michael, who's 10 years older, and thinking 'there's a vacancy there'. So there must be a Harry Styles looking at me going 'he's over the hill now'," he said.

However, one very important question remains... Is Haz a Geri or a Robbie?

Team Geri
If Harry turns out to be a Geri we can expect a flop of a solo career and an attempt to sex things up and boost record sales with a Flash Dance-style music video involving leotards and loadsa dancing around in the rain.

Team Robbie
Will see Hazza hit the major big time flying solo, but ultimately fail in his attempts to crack the States and go running back (tears in his eyes) to Gary Barlow Liam Tomlinson.

BUT Directioners shouldn't worry too much just yet. "Harry's priority is obviously still with 1D," said the pal. "But when he decides the time to go solo has arrived, he's likely to have a project raring to go."
