The photo in question was a mirror selfie seemingly taken in a gym. Styles covers his face with his phone as he snaps the picture. The singer’s outfit pairs dark blue shorts with a T-shirt promoting One Direction’s Up All Night Tour in 2012.
Styles ended up deleting the photo from his stories, but not before fans saved it and spread it around Twitter. According to Billboard, the phrase “HE DELETED IT” was the top trend on Twitter Sunday night. Some fans thought Styles might have intended to only share the photo with his close friends list.
One fan also pointed out that in an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Styles admitted that his guilty pleasure is “working out to One Direction.” Apparently those workouts also feature the group’s merch.

Styles Is on Board for a Group Reunion
Ever since One Direction went on an indefinite hiatus in 2016, fans have wondered if the group has plans for a reunion. The group members have commented on the possibility at various times, and it sounds like Styles is on board.
“I think the thought of it [a reunion] is a really nice one,” he said in an interview last year. “I’d love for there to be a time where it felt like something we all wanted to do.”
Styles has found plenty of success as a solo artist in recent years. Just last month, the singer took home the Grammy for Album of the Year for his 2022 release Harry’s House. His former bandmates Liam Payne and Niall Horan both congratulated him on social media.
