Harry restyled: Former One Direction star, 29, has been using a pseudonym to check into


Harry restyled: Former One Direction star, 29, has been using a pseudonym to check into hotels – and it’s left check-in staff in stitches

Beyoncé has used Ingrid Jackson, for Brad Pitt it’s Bryce Pilaf, and Jennifer Aniston arrives as just plain old Mrs Smith.

Hotels are accustomed to celebrities using pseudonyms when booking a room to prevent paparazzi and fans camping outside. 

But Harry Styles‘s choice for his stay at Edinburgh’s five-star Caledonian this weekend had staff in fits of laughter.

The former One Direction star booked in under the name Oliver Sudden, which is believed to be a twist on the expression ‘all of a sudden’. 

This could refer to how Styles’ life changed overnight when he took part in the now defunct ITV reality show The X Factor. 

Or he could have been using a red herring to confuse fans as Oliver Sudden is also the name of a South London-based rapper.

A source at the hotel said: ‘We all had a right giggle when we saw the name – it took a while to work out what it meant. 

‘Harry is so famous though that he has to use a different name when checking in or it would be carnage for him with his fans who follow him wherever they know he is.’

The As It Was singer is said to be using a secret back entrance to go in and out of the building, and he is being driven around the city in an S-Class Mercedes.

Famously, One Direction were unable to leave their hotels through the main doors because thousands of their fans would wait outside.

Styles, 29, was understood to have been staying in a £3,000-a night suite at the Caledonian for his two sell-out concerts at Murrayfield stadium as part of his Love On Tour.

And on Thursday he was seen enjoying a round of golf with his manager at the iconic St Andrews course in photographs shared on their Instagram account.

Styles, who split with American actress Olivia Wilde earlier this year, has been on the road since September 2021 when his tour kicked off in Las Vegas.

It will end in the Italian city Reggio Emilia in July.

The singer has had a long list of flings, including with the likes of fellow singer Taylor Swift

The singer, who has had a long list of flings with the likes of fellow singer Taylor Swift, model Kendall Jenner, French-American actress Camille Rowe and the late TV presenter Caroline Flack, was recently reported to be now dating model Emily Ratajkowski.

The pair were photographed in a clinch in Tokyo in March during an earlier leg of Styles’s tour.
