One Direction's Harry Styles protests his innocence over 'Pussy-gate'!

One Direction

One Direction's Harry Styles has claimed he was just making an innocent comment to X Factor winner Matt Cardle on last year’s final, when the camera caught him whispering about "how much pussy" the 28-year-old would get after winning the reality series.

Harry told Alan Carr on last night's Chatty Man: "I was completely innocent!"

He poorly explained: "Me and Matt had been discussing Christmas presents for our parents and Matt had previously said he wanted to get as many cats as he could for his mum.

"So when I won I told him to think about how many cats he could get now."

We totally buy it, Harry...
