The name 'Ariel' was a top trend on Twitter after images of the 'Golden' singer emerged, of him posing in a red wig and green tail, as the titular character from The Little Mermaid.

Harry's fans were quick to share photos of him all over Twitter, with some of the most iconic captions...

Speaking to Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp, Harry explained why he didn't take on the role of Eric in Disney's upcoming live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid, saying "I had a meeting with Rob Marshall, the director, who is the most wonderful man.

"He's great, and it was just honestly a few things and it just wasn't... It's going to be an amazing film."

Awkwafina, who is set to star as the seagull Scuttle in the film, also spoke to Capital about Harry dropping out.

"I think I came on a little bit later [than when Harry Styles was said to be cast as Prince Eric]," said the Raya and the Last Dragon actress.

"I am a big fan of Harry Styles," she said, before praising Jonah Hauer-King, who was finally cast in the role, saying "[Jonah] is really great, too."
