One Direction's Harry Styles admits he "love cougars" and says age is "nothing but a number"

One Direction tour

With Valentine's day just around the corner, One Direction star Harry Styles has been revealing all about his ideal woman, and it's no surprise to hear he prefers them older!

The former X Factor singer insisted that age doesn't matter, as long as they're not older than his 43-year-old mum!

"I love cougars though. Age is nothing but a number," the 18-year-old tells We Love Pop magazine this month.

But the teenager does draw the line at patronising pet names! He said: “If she called me something like ‘snugglebug’ it would make me cringe.”

And a confident Harry said he's not worried about what others may think about any of his relationships, adding: “It wouldn’t affect it too much, because if you like someone you like someone."
