Fans of One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles can save their hero from a deadly cliff plunge in a new mobile phone app.

The Harry Dive game features a lookalike of the pop star – complete with his trademark floppy hairstyle – who plunges from the top of a sheer bluff.

Users have to try to save his life by helping him to dodge falling rocks, trees, and other missiles.

Designer Jari Huomo launched the app earlier this week and is stunned by its success after 15,000 One Direction fans downloaded it to their phone within hours.

He says, “I still don’t know if the popularity is a good thing. If Harry doesn’t like the app then I will pull it out (of) the App Store.”
