HE was the biggest name in One Direction but as a solo artist Harry Styles appears determined to erase his past.

It can be revealed Styles wants to shake off his boyband days after any mention of One Direction was airbrushed from the pre-publicity for his new BBC documentary.

The upcoming hour-long entertainment show, titled Harry, will be broadcast in November and feature an interview with his pal, Radio 1’s Nick Grimshaw, reports The Sun .

But an official article put up by the BBC about the program described how Styles will, “perform tracks from his self-titled No1 debut album and chat to Nick about his life, being a solo artist and starting his acting career.”

It makes no reference to the world’s biggest boyband, which helped to make Styles a global superstar.

It’s understood the decision to airbrush his history is down to Styles wanting to be taken seriously as a credible musician.

His debut solo single, Sign of the Times, went straight to No1 and his album also topped the charts.

Plus, he wowed audiences and critics with his performance in hit war movie Dunkirk.

A source revealed: “The path Harry has taken with his music is very different to the type of big pop songs he was performing with One Direction.

“As a result Harry is keen to get away from his teeny-bopper days and reinvent himself as a rock star.”

The source added: “Despite that, it’s understood that a One Direction segment has been filmed as part of the documentary.”

The snub will no doubt come as a huge blow to the millions of diehard One Direction fans around the globe who have supported Styles and his former band mates Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan throughout their careers.

Meanwhile former bandmate Zayn Malik hinted at a feud with Harry this week saying he hadn’t expected to stay in touch with him after he unexpectedly quit the band in 2015 as they never really interacted.

He admitted: “I never really spoke to Harry even when I was in the band.

“So I didn’t really expect that much of a relationship with him when I left.”

They’ve certainly got a lot of history — but why Styles wouldn’t want to remember his boyband days is puzzling.
