Gemma Styles was born to parents Des Styles and Anne Twist in Worcestershire in 1990. Her younger brother Harry arrived in 1994.

The family moved to Holmes Chapel, Cheshire when Gemma and Harry were young. Anne and Des split a few years later.

Gemma attended Holmes Chapel Comprehensive School – where Harry also studied – before enrolling in Sheffield Hallam University.

While Gemma was at university, Harry auditioned for The X Factor and rose to fame in boy band One Direction.

After coming third in the competition, the group became hugely successful.

Brainy Gemma graduated with first-class honours in 2013 and Harry celebrated his sister’s achievement at her ceremony in Sheffield City Hall.

Gemma is very close to her famous sibling. She’s jetted off around the world to join him on tour quite a few times.

Some of the places she’s visited with him include the USA, Australia and Japan.

She’s also supported Harry at events including the BRIT Awards and the London premiere of 1D’s 3D documentary film This Is Us.

Harry thinks so highly of his sister that he has an iced gem tattooed on the inside of his left arm, which refers to one of her nicknames from childhood.

Further up his arm, he has Gemma’s name etched in Hebrew. A small letter G inked on his right shoulder is also believed to be a tribute to her.

Gemma Styles has become good friends with a number of people in One Direction’s circle.

She’s been snapped spending time with 1D girlfriends Eleanor Calder and Sophia Smith, as well as Louis Tomlinson’s younger sister Lottie.

The graduate is also pals with the group’s hairdresser Lou Teasdale, who’s styled her locks numerous times.

Gemma – who’s naturally brunette – has dyed her hair various funky colours, including lilac, pink, platinum blonde, silver and blue.

In 2014, Gemma Styles was rumoured to be dating 5 Seconds Of Summer’s Ashton Irwin.

She was said to have fallen for hunky Ashton when his band was supporting One Direction on their Take Me Home tour in 2013.

But Ashton later revealed that he and Gemma were ‘just mates’, although he did say that she was ‘cool to hang around with’.
