Harry Styles was robbed at knifepoint on Valentine’s Day in Hampstead.

The former One Direction singer, 26, handed over cash after he was confronted by a mugger in Spaniard's Road during a night out, according to the Mirror Online.

Scotland Yard confirmed the force is investigating a knifepoint robbery in the area.
