Harry Styles revealed in Dare To Dream he finds being naked ‘very liberating:’ ‘I have great memories of being in the [X Factor] house, especially all of the times I went naked. Stripping off is very liberating, I feel so free. It’s always a spur-..
..of-the-moment thing, but no-one seemed to mind. I think Mary [Byrne] secretly liked it. I would become a lot more confident during my time in the show through being in front of so many people, and my confidence came out in my..

My friend Nick bought me a gold snake-print thong for my birthday and I took it into the house with me because I thought it’d be funny.
Then I started wearing it. One time I had to do a naked video clip for ITV2 where I was standing there with no clothes on and the boys had to pass various objects across me, keeping certain parts covered.
And that was the plan, but at one point Zayn [Malik] didn’t move the book he was holding quickly enough and the cameraman got a bit of an eyeful. I think you could safely say I’m not shy.’
