Harry Styles loves "very British things like scones" too much to ever move to America.

The One Direction star sparked speculation he was considering relocating to the US when it was claimed he was house hunting with his father in Malibu. It was also suggested that he was considering leaving the group to focus on his solo career.

The 19-year-old hunk is dismayed to hear of the reports and insists they couldn't be further from the truth.

"I'm not leaving One Direction. It's a shame because rumors like that upset our fans. I enjoy being in the band more than ever," he told Heat magazine. "The tour is going great - it's like having four brothers. We spend all of our time together, but we do our own things once in a while. I like America, but I also like very British things like scones."

Harry and his bandmates Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik and Liam Payne found fame after appearing on a UK TV show. They have soared to success around the world and enjoy touring because it means they can meet fans from different countries.

Although they are just at the beginning of their career, the band have thought about what they want from the future. They hope to emulate the success of another famous UK offering - Take That.

"We want to be like Take That or Gary Barlow - take ten years out and then come back," Niall previously explained.
