IT’S not every day that one of the most popular boy bands in the world appear in a small village in Bedfordshire.
The chances of Harry Styles posing for a selfie in a field in Cardington are even more remote.
But that is exactly what happened to Liam Sale, a painting and decorating student at Bedford College today (Wednesday, April 2).
“I couldn’t believe it, Harry was so nice.
“None of the other One Direction boys stopped when they saw us, but Harry got out of his black Porsche and came over to us to have a chat.
“I asked if I could have a selfie with him and he did it straight away. I thought he might say hi or wave to us, but I never thought I would get a selfie.
“Everyone was shouting ‘I love you!’”
Liam and a group of around ten One Direction fans were gathered outside Bedfordshire landmark the Cardington Sheds, where the band is shooting a new music video, when Liam, Zayn, Niall, Harry and Louis arrived in convoy.
The 17-year-old student from Great Denham added: “We heard One Direction were at the Sheds and we went down there to see if we could get an autograph or see them.
“We got there at about 12:30pm and at around 1:30pm the boys arrived in their cars.”
The cheeky pop star went over and started talking to fans, posing for a selfie with Liam and his friend Elisha Thompson, 17.
Liam added: “I thought it was so nice of him, none of the others stopped.
“A security guard came over afterwards and told us that Harry had got in trouble because he shouldn’t get out of the car without a bodyguard!”
Rumours about the band being in Bedfordshire have been circulating since early this week, when trucks containing sound and lighting equipment started arriving at the Cardington Sheds.
A local man also posted a video of late night activity at the Sheds, with flashing lights and fireworks heard by residents of nearby New Cardington.
