1D star Harry cares for his ex-girlfriend

Harry Styles is still feeling protective of Caroline Flack.

The One Direction singer, who announced he split with Caroline in January, thinks she’s getting a bit of a hard time from the public – and he doesn’t like it.

‘She is a lovely girl,’ says Harry, 18, reports Metro.

Caroline, 32, was heavily criticised throughout her 3-month relationship with Harry, who was 17 at the time.

But the Xtra Factor host – who even received death threats from 1D fans on Twitter – saw no problem with the age gap romance.

‘If two people like each other and get on, why does anyone else find a negative in it?’ Caroline told Now’s Dan Wootton last year.

‘I know it’s human nature for everyone to gossip.

‘But why say it’s bad?

‘No one’s being hurt at all in any way.’
