One Direction singer Harry Styles has admitted despite being in one of the biggest bands in the world, he still gets starstruck when he meets his fellow celebrities.

The One Direction singer is in one of the biggest bands in the world, but he still has to "take a step back" whenever he comes face to face with his heroes.

Speaking at an event for cancer-care charity Trekstock, he said: "There are always times when you meet someone or talk to someone and you take a step back and think, 'This is the weirdest thing that's ever happened to me.' "

Despite the group's global fame - which has been compared to the fanatical following of The Beatles in their heyday - the 'Story of My Life' hitmaker has previously admitted they aren't on the same level "in terms of music".

He insisted: "We all sat and watched the film of [The Beatles] arriving in America. And, to be honest, that really was like us.

"Stepping off the plane, the girls, the madness. It was exactly the same as when we got there - just 50 years earlier.

"But none of us think we're in the same league as them music-wise. We'd be total fools if we did. Fame-wise, it's probably even bigger, but we don't stand anywhere near them in terms of music."
