Harry Styles is becoming a man

Harry Styles is quickly turning from boy to man.

The One Direction heartthrob, who split with 32-year-old Xtra Factor host Caroline Flack last week, turned 18 yesterday.

‘I feel like I’ve woken up with suddenly more facial hair and a deeper voice.. Thank you for all your lovely Birthday messages 😀 .xx,’ Harry told his Twitter followers.

Harry‘s currently in America with his band filming a cameo for hit Nickelodeon show iCarly.

But the lads are thought to be heading back to the UK – where Harry can enjoy his first legal alcoholic drink – before they return to the US to support Big Time Rush on tour later this month.

‘Just woke up thanks to a lovely crow outside. Sunny day! Missing everyone back in the UK… 🙂 .x,’ Harry Tweeted after the lads’ arrival across the pond.
