STAFF have said pop heart-throb Harry Styles was lovely after he was spotted buying cupcakes in Chapelford for his celebrity girlfriend today, Thursday.
The One Direction singer went to the Custom Cupcake Company to buy 23 cupcakes to mark his girlfriend Taylor Swift’s 23rd birthday.
Owner Matt Blakey said they received a call the day before asking for 23 cakes urgently.
He added: “The woman said it was for Harry Styles but I didn’t know who that was at first.
“We had got a lot of orders before Christmas but she said he desperately needed them so we said ok.
“It was only afterwards we looked on the internet and saw it was his girlfriend’s birthday today and she was 23.”
Matt and wife Kelly, who run the company together from their Montgomery Close home, said the cakes were a selection of 12 flavours including ones filled with candy floss and a mint liqueur centre.
Kelly added: “I was a real professional until I closed the door and then I went a bit giddy.
“Matt hadn’t told me the cakes were for Harry Styles so I was really surprised when I opened the front door to him.
“He was a lovely, down to earth guy.”
