Taylor Swift has to wait for 1D boyf Harry Styles

Harry Styles missed his flight back to the US on Friday because he left his passport at home.

The One Direction star was due to catch the 11.15am British Airways flight from Heathrow to Boston to meet girlfriend Taylor Swift, 23, but couldn’t board the plane.

Harry, 18, who’d been dropped off by mum Anne Cox after spending Christmas with his family in Cheshire, caught the 7.30pm flight instead.

‘He wanted to fly out that day so rather than Anne drive the journey back up north, he decided to get a courier bike to pick it up,’ a source tells the Sunday People.

‘He managed to get on the evening flight but it still meant that he had to wait another eight hours for his post-Christmas reunion with Taylor.

‘Despite this, he took the whole event in good humour and ridiculed himself for it.’

Harry filled the time between flights having lunch and doing a bit of shopping.
