Harry Styles has got the X Factor in Holmes Chapel


BBC North West Tonight reporter Kate Simms travelled in search of Harry Styles supporters

Harry's direction

One of the stars of the ITV talent show X Factor, Harry Styles , from the band One Direction, is getting plenty of local support from his home village of Holmes Chapel in south Cheshire.

Staff at the W Mandeville Bakery, where sixteen year old Harry had a part-time job until recently, have decorated the company's windows with messages of support. They are urging all the villagers to vote for One Direction.

X Factor judge Simon Cowell described the five-piece as one of the most exciting young bands in the pop world.

Pupils at Harry's old school, Holmes Chapel Comprehensive, voted his then band, White Eskimo, as their favourite in a battle of the bands contest there.
