The 'Gotta Be You' singer's followers are divided in opinion over the credibility of the picture.

One Direction singer Harry Styles is today (10th January) at the centre of a huge Twitter debate amongst fans after a supposed naked photo of the star emerged online.

The picture was first published in Heat magazine and shows the torso of a nude male with the flash of the camera obscuring their face.

The unidentifiable male has the same trademark hairstyle as Harry and it has caused quite a stir on the social networking site with many unconvinced it is real.

Twitter user jjjulianilsson tweeted: " Harry_styles there's a rumour about you, that you have published a naked photo on yoursef on internet. I hope and think that its not true.."

Another follower called @_Ms19426 wrote: "One Direction's day job when they split Zayn-DJ Malik Niall-Chef in Nandos Harry-Naked Model Louis-Carrot Stall Liam-Will go2 grammar school."

"Oh lord...and it spreads. His poor Mother...," tweeted @GemmeDiaper.

Meanwhile, One Direction are set to play the HMV Hammersmith Apollo this evening and received some good luck messages from JLS ahead of the gig.

The band were also recently involved in a car accident after their vehicle was hit on the way home from a gig in Birmingham.
