X Fac­tor star meets look-alike Suzanne has the X Fac­tor too BUY ONE CURRY & GET ONE

Evening Express (Extra Edition) - - FRONT PAGE - By Is­abel Hunter

MOPS of curly hair, cheeky smiles and twinkly eyes – this is the adorable mo­ment when Harry met Harry.

Lit­tle Harry Moir, 6, from In­verurie, has at­tracted a lot of at­ten­tion from the girls at his school be­cause he is the spit­ting im­age of Harry Styles, from top X Fac­tor band One Direc­tion.

And as school­girls went wild out­side the group’s Aberdeen ho­tel, the sixyear-old was able to com­pare notes with the pop star about deal­ing with fans.

One Direc­tion’s Harry took a break from a vo­cal session with band­mates Liam Payne, Louis Tom­lin­son, Niall Ho­ran and Zayn Ma­lik to hang out with the Strath­burn Pri­mary School pupil.

He said: “I didn’t think he would look any­thing like me, but he looks like a lit­tle ver­sion of me. Its re­ally strange, to be hon­est.”

And Harry Styles, 17, got a snap on his mo­bile phone with his dou­ble – be­cause his mum asked him to.

He said: “I didn’t look any­thing like Harry when I was younger, my hair was blonde and straight. My mum wants a pic­ture.”

And just as the P2 pupil re­cov­ered from meet­ing Harry, the rest of One Direc­tion ap­peared.

The young­ster man­aged to find a ta­ble of snacks in the ho­tel suite and quickly showed the teenage boys where they could get their hands on the bis­cuits.

Within min­utes, lit­tle Harry looked very at home as part of the band.

And the singer said: “You could take my place tonight if you wanted to.”

The band was in town for the Aberdeen leg of the X Fac­tor’s 51-date tour.

And the group has played to sell-out crowds at the Aberdeen Ex­hi­bi­tion and HARRY wasn’t the only North-east kid to get up close and per­sonal with some X Fac­tor stars. Suzanne Reid, 8, showed no signs of be­ing star stuck when the show’s win­ner Matt Car­dle walked into the restau­rant where she was din­ing. The Kinel­lar Pri­mary School pupil ap­proached her heroes Matt and Ai­den Grimshaw as they ar­rived for lunch at Pizza Ex­press on Aberdeen’s Bel­mont Street ear­lier this week. Con­fer­ence Cen­tres Press and Jour­nal arena along­side win­ner Matt Car­dle and run­ners-up Re­becca Fer­gu­son and Cher Lloyd.

Harry thanked the Aberdeen fans for their sup­port and said: “The shows have been bril­liant with re­ally great au­di­ences, who are al­ways loud. This is the sec­ond time Sur­prised mum Sheila, 46, of Black­burn looked on as her young daugh­ter chat­ted to the stars and asked for an au­to­graph. Sheila, a nurse, said: “You could see ev­ery body else look­ing, but they were too po­lite to go over. But she just chat­ted away. “Matt called her ‘sweet­heart’ and she told them she was go­ing to see the show. “She’s nor­mally a shy girl so I was amazed at her con­fi­dence. “She would watch the show ev­ery week, and would vote for Cher Lloyd.” we’ve been to Scot­land and the au­di­ences have al­ways been bril­liant up here.

“Its def­i­nitely one of our favourite places to per­form.”

Lit­tle Harry’s mum, Jill Moir, 38, a deputy head teacher at Gor­don Schools in Huntly, took her son to the show with his sis­ter Han­nah, 9. She said: “He got recog­nised twice at the show – be­cause he looks so much­liketheother Harry.”
