IT is not every day that a global superstar arrives on your doorstep to film a new blockbuster movie.

But Harry Styles was spotted filming in various locations around Worthing yesterday, including Worthing Leisure Centre and The Vine pub.

The 27-year-old is thought to be shooting his latest movie, My Policeman, in which he plays the lead role.

Photographs shared on Twitter show the former One Direction star filming alongside his co-star, Emma Corrin from The Crown.

Film trailers, several classic cars and large camera crews have been pictured in the carpark of Worthing Leisure Centre.

Fans of the Grammy-award winning singer waited for hours in the wind and rain in the hope of catching a glimpse of their idol.


Teresa Dennis, from Worthing, said there was a “good atmosphere” among the crowds that had gathered at the set.

She praised the production for doing an “amazing” job of making the set look authentic to the 1950s – the period in which the film is set.

One fan on Twitter said she waited for “six hours” to see Harry Styles, while another kind-hearted follower of the star brought hot chocolate for everyone waiting in the cold.

Some fans claim to have spotted Harry in Steyne Gardens and outside of the custody block in Durrington.

Work on the film is set to continue for the next few weeks with various locations across Sussex set to be used as filming locations.

The Argus previously reported that from midnight on Friday, May 7, a parking suspension will be in place on Adelaide Crescent to Holland Road, Hove, to allow filming to take place.

It has also been announced that on Thursday, May 13, parking will also be suspended in the shared bay opposite Blenheim Court and Spa Court, Hove and in all bays on Medina Terrace.

My Policeman is based on Brighton author Bethan Roberts’s 2012 novel of the same name.

Harry plays Tom, the police officer of the title and Emma will play Marion, his on-screen wife.
