POP sensation Harry Styles has placed Northwich on the celebrity map after treating American girlfriend, Taylor Swift, to an afternoon in a Great Budworth pub where he previously wined and dined former flame Caroline Flack.

The 18-year-old One Direction star may originate from Holmes Chapel but he was keen to show his latest squeeze neighbouring Northwich last week, treating her to a trip to Tesco and the George & Dragon pub.

The A-list couple, who had been touring the north west, was reported to have been seen in the Manchester Road supermarket last Tuesday evening, sparking a Twitter meltdown over whether the rumours were true.

Although some Twitter users were sceptical about “Haylor’s” appearance in the town, Tesco confirmed that the singers had in fact visited the store on Tuesday, with one employee saying “I guess Harry has to do his shopping like everybody else”.

On Thursday, the couple were spotted at the George & Dragon pub in Great Budworth, where they enjoyed a quiet drink.

Tia Nightingale, who was working in the pub at the time, said: “Harry has been in a few times and I have served him before. The last time he came in he was with Caroline Flack.

“He was really nice and really polite and spoke to me, but Taylor was very quiet.

“They came in and asked if we were serving food but Harry did most of the talking.

“They only stayed for one drink – they weren’t in for very long.”

The couple was also spotted in Warrington last Thursday, where Harry treated Taylor to cupcakes for her 23rd birthday.
