A dramatic tale of girls, coats and betrayal...
We had a chat with Will Sweeny, Harry’s best mate from school, who told us about what Hazza has to go through just when he wants to leave his house...
"Right, we wanted to leave the house. I was dropping him off to get his car because he can’t park his car in his own drive – if he does then people know he’s there and mob the house, so he had to park it somewhere else, so I was dropping him off to get it. I had a Classic Mini at the time, so it’s really hard to hide because it’s really loud and full of spotlights and stuff.
“I parked it round the back of his house, and some of these girls were there. There were about 20 – 30 out the front, and five or six loitering around the back entrance. His step-dad Robin said that he was more than happy for them to stand about out the front but not really the back, so they went off. So when they walked off I said 'Harry, dive in the footwell!' so he did. I covered him with three coats – I don’t know why I had three coats in my car but I did – so he just looked like a pile of coats.
“I pulled out and drove towards this T junction about 50 metres past his house. All the girls looked and saw the car, and they instantly were suspicious. It was funny, I’m nobody and they’d never seen the car before.
“Harry said to me to let him know when they were gone, so I pretended to drive off but drove really slowly… drove past them and slowed down, I said ‘Oh Harry they’ve all gone’ and we were literally right next to them. So Harry pulled the coats off him and sat up and they all just started grabbing at the car! It was funny. They were all running down the street after us."
Were they like zombies?
"Yeah it was funny. It was a good job because there were traffic lights by his house, and I thought if they go red we’re stuffed, so I had to go through on kind of just-before-red-amber. But otherwise we would have been mobbed, it was weird seeing these girls running up the road… but I thought it was absolutely hilarious to see his face when he came out of the coats and saw all the girls clambering at his windows."
Did Hazza get annoyed?
"No he thought it was funny, it was all just a joke."
If you reckon Will sounds like buff tings and you also like looking at things to do with One Direction, then you'll just love this the All For One DVD that's out now.
