Harry Styles fans banned from buying kiwis from nearby supermarket

Harry Styles is currently in the middle of the UK leg of his first ever solo tour, with the One Direction star having a near miss during Monday night’s [30 October] Hammersmith show when he slipped on a kiwi mid-set.

‘Kiwi’ is a fan-favourite track from Harry’s debut solo album, and the 23-year-old was left concerned when he realised that his dedicated followers had started to bring the fruit to his show as a tribute to the song.

Now a branch of supermarket chain Asda in Hulme, Manchester, has revealed that they decided to take action when Harry headed to the city for his tour earlier this week; checking the ID of anybody buying the fruit in case they had the wrong intentions.

The branch checked the ID of kiwi-buyers who looked under the age of 25, with a spokesperson for the branch explaining: “We know our customers love Harry Styles and we feel it’s our duty to protect a fellow Mancunian from any ‘bad kiwis’ amongst us.

“We’d hate to see a repeat of the mishap this evening, so to avoid any slippery situations, we feel this is a necessary measure.”

Harry slipped on the kiwi pulp whilst dancing on stage at the Eventim Apollo, recounting the mishap to the 5000-strong crowd.

He said: “You may have seen me fall earlier during this song. It appeared to be on a kiwi.

“That was the culprit, some green seedy mush. Look there’s another – this could end up being a problem.”

The star struggled to wipe up all of the juice before continuing with the show, where he actually ended up performing ‘Kiwi’ twice due to popular demand.
