The 'Little Things' singer has been causing a stir in the Big Apple with fans waiting outside his hotel.

One Direction star Harry Styles had a lucky escape in New York City yesterday (1st July) after a crowd of girls swarmed him outside his hotel.

The 'Live While We're Young' singer had to be helped by a burly bodyguard after a large group of screaming fans spotted him trying to sneak into the back entrance of his Big Apple hotel on Monday.

While the fans desperately tried to take pictures and talk to the boy band star, Harry had to be lifted to safety up a steel railing staircase by his bodyguard to avoid being crushed by the over-enthusiastic crowd.

The incident is the second in two days involving Harry having a sticky incident with fans, after reports he was forced to crawl to a waiting car outside his hotel on Sunday (30th June) due to his security staff losing control of a large crowd.
