Speaking on the breakfast show, Skelton, who lives in Milton Keynes, Bucks, explained: "People always ask for pictures with me on the street and on Twitter - I've got a lot marriage proposals."

On how it all started, he added: "I went to knock for my friend before school and One Direction were on TV and my friend's mum looked at One Direction and then she looked at me and said I looked like him.

"I don't think I looked that much like him but she said I did and from there people have just said I do."

The Sun is claiming that One Direction's Styles has told friends: "That's absolutely hilarious. Superb.

"Good on Jake. I hope he's having a good laugh."

Meanwhile, Skelton added to the tabloid: "It's gone crazy - I've had loads of messages and people wanting me to talk on TV.

"I can't believe I'm on the front page of The Sun. Everyone was calling me Harry at school today."
