Harry Styles' love life in full – from Taylor Swift to Olivia Wilde

Harry Styles has dated a string of well-known names since he catapulted to fame on The X Factor in 2010.

Watermelon Sugar hitmaker Harry, 26, has never been afraid to share his penchant for dating older women and he previously shared that he’d date someone as old as his mum – but that was the furthest he’d push an age gap.

As lothario Harry appears to embark on his new romance with House name Olivia, here is a look the boyband sensation’s list of former flings including the late Caroline Flack, songstress Taylor Swift and a string of Victoria’s Secret models.
