In other related news, Harry Styles has told Capital FM that he expects to be beaten by Mumford & Sons in the British Group category at The Brits tonight.
When asked if he thinks they can win the gong, the curly-haired hunk stated: "Not really! I think for us we just feel honoured to be among who's in there, to be honest.
"We think Mumford [& Sons] are going to win it and I think deservedly so. They cleaned up at the Grammys so we think they deserve it, and we're big fans of them as well so it would be great."
