Harry Styles announces the release date of his first solo single

You could say this weekend has been a very busy one indeed for two One Direction band members.

On Saturday former X Factor judge Cheryl, and her One Direction beau Liam Payne, shared a picture of their beautiful baby son on Instagram, after a hotly-anticipated and much speculated pregnancy. 

New mum Cheryl captioned the post: "On Wednesday 22nd March Liam and I became parents to an incredibly beautiful, healthy baby boy, weighing 7lb 9 and looking like a dream. Although he still doesn't have a name he is already stealing hearts. We are all madly in love and overwhelmingly happy with our little arrival. Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers around the world. A day that now has a different meaning to me forever ��"

Then on Sunday  - which marked two years to the day since Zayn Malik brought tears to the eyes of his loyal followers, when he announced he was quitting the band - Harry Styles revealed the date of when his solo material will drop. 

The much-awaited news came when a teaser trailer aired during the semi-final of The Voice

The mysterious promo video shows a rather wet-looking Harry in a dark and smoky room, walking towards a light shining through the door. Once he opens the door, he looks up and then the date of April 7th flashes up. Roll on April 7th!

The One Direction star is following in the footsteps of his former bandmates Zayn, Louis and Niall who all embarked on their solo careers in 2016 releasing singles like Pillow Talk, Just Hold On and This Town. These singles came after the group said in March 2016 they would be going on a hiatus. 

Since then, Harry signed his own record deal in June 2016 and has also been kept busy by completing his big-screen debut in Christopher Nolan's war thriller, Dunkirk, which is set to hit the cinemas this July.
