Harry Styles on stage at Wembley Stadium (Photo: Twitter)
Harry Styles had a heartfelt encounter with one of his fans during a show at Wembley Stadium at the weekend, who he helped come out.
The chart-topping star performed his first ever solo shows at the iconic venue on Saturday and Sunday nights, taking a break from singing when a sign with the message “From Ono To Wembley: Help Me Come Out” caught his attention.
“So you’d like the people of Wembley to bring you out?” he asked the fan in question, to rapturous applause from the packed-out crowd.
Urging the audience to “make some noise”, Harry took a Pride flag from the front of the stage and said: “When this flag goes above my head, you are officially out.”
“I think that’s how it works,” he joked. “When this flag goes over the head, you’re officially gay, my boy.”

Accompanied by a drum roll, the As It Was singer teased the raising of the flag for a few seconds (“nope, still straight,” he was also heard joking), before triumphantly raising it aloft.
“Congratulations, you are a free man,” he told the fan, blowing him some kisses to mark the occasion.
“Holy moly, the adrenaline!” Harry added.
But he wasn’t the only fan who had a surprise at Harry’s Wembley show.
One attendee was excited to spot an old pal of the singer’s in the crowd in the form of his former One Direction bandmate Niall Horan:

Harry’s Love On Tour jaunt sees him performing his hits, alongside tracks from his latest album Harry’s House.
The release was trailed by lead single As It Was, which spent 10 weeks at number one in the UK earlier this year, before being toppled by Kate Bush’s 1985 classic Running Up That Hill.
