One Direction's Harry Styles has reportedly come out as a supporter of the Labour Party.

According to The Mirror, the One Direction singer told an unnamed source at the Sony Music Brit Awards after party that he leans to the political left. “I’m a Labour supporter,” he is supposed to have told the source. “I lean to the left. I’m for the people.”
This will doubtless please Prime Minister David Cameron, who appears in the video for the band's new charity single, 'One Way Or Another (Teenage Kicks)', which is this year's official Comic Relief track.

Cameron will line up alongside Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Liam Payne in the video, which is due to be revealed prior to the annual live telethon on Friday, March 15. Little is known about Cameron's role in the video, though it is thought that the PM's part was filmed outside 10 Downing Street.

One Direction's Comic Relief single will be a mash-up of cover version, with the teen band combining The Undertones' 'Teenage Kicks' with Blondie's 'One Way Or Another' – which they performed at this week's Brit Awards.

The position of Prime Minister has long held close links to Comic Relief with Tony Blair appearing in a Catherine Tate sketch in 2007 and Gordon Brown appearing alongside JLS and James Corden for a similar comedy moment in 2011. David Cameron has previous form, having filmed a spoof Masterchef episode alongside comic actors such as Miranda Hart and Ruby Wax, also in 2011.
