Harry Styles: 'Giving A Speech At My Mum's Wedding Was The Most Nerve-Wracking Thing I've Ever Done'

Harry Styles might perform in front of thousands of screaming One Direction fans every night when the lads are on tour but he reckons that's nothing compared to giving a speech at his mum's wedding.

Harry,19, was best man at his mum, Anne Cox's nuptials in June this year and has revealed that standing up in front of 100 family and friends turned him into a nervous wreck.

He told The Sun: “I did give a speech and I can honestly say it was the most nerve-wracking thing I’ve ever done.”

But despite his nerves, Harry says his speech couldn't have gone better.

“I practised on my own for days beforehand, on the sofa reciting it to myself. I tried to make it have a bit of everything," he said.

“When everyone thought it was going to be really emotional, I pulled the rug from under everyone’s feet and injected a bit of humour. It seemed to go well.”
