One Direction's Harry Styles likes girls who play hard to get

One Direction star Harry Styles has revealed that he likes girls who play hard to get.

The singer has previously dated Xtra Factor host Caroline Flack and Made in Chelsea star Caggie Dunlop.

The 18-year-old admitted that he enjoys it when a woman turns him down.

He told Top of the Pops magazine: "The fun part is the chase, so if you speak to me, play a bit hard to get.

"I think it's attractive when someone turns you down. You don't want someone to say yes straight away, do you?"

He added: "I think you have to be cool to be a good flirt - and I don't think I'm very cool."

Meanwhile, it has been reported that Harry thinks Carol Vorderman is the"ultimate cougar".

A source told the Daily Star: "Harry absolutely fancies the pants off of Carol, and has for years.

"He has always said that he would love to take her on a date but that he wouldn't have the guts to actually ask her out in case she turned him down.

"But Carol is definitely the ultimate cougar for Harry."
