Lots of hugs
'William kept trying and was devastated, but had to learn to let go, because Harry was just gone.'
Yvette continues, 'Harry broke Will's heart. But I'm gobsmacked at how understanding Will's been. A lot of lads would be bitter but he just says, 'I hope somebody is looking out for Harry.' and I think that's the mark of a true friend. I've helped Will through the whole thing with lots of hugs.'
Yvette reveals that Harry had no time to support his old band, either.
'Will asked Harry to tweet about their band, White Eskimo, but didn't get a response until Will said it publicly, then the same night Harry tweeted and their Twitter fans went from 19,000 to over 90,000. Will asked him to come and see the band, but Harry never has.'
These days Harry has a new bromance, with Radio One's Nick Grimshaw. The pair partied until the early hours after the BRITs, then Harry helped Nick present his radio show at 5am. The pair admit to swapping clothes and even have the same hairstyle. 'Harry's got celebrity friends now,' Yvette has said.
But it seems Harry, notorious as a ladies' man, began perfecting his womanising ways early on!
'We looked after Harry for a couple of weeks while Anne was on holiday and he was very naughty,' Yvette told us. 'The last time I saw him, we went for a Chinese — his mum and her partner, Robin, plus me and my husband, Karl. Harry was sending me disgusting texts from across the table. I can't even repeat the words, they were so rude!'
Although she refuses to reveal what was said, Yvette's seen Harry's style in action. 'He's a Romeo, he's very romantic. When there's a love interest, Harry will go all out to get the girl. He's totally obsessed. I think that's what Simon Cowell saw in him, the cheeky chappie charm.'
But Yvette is appalled by Harry's 30-odd tattoos, saying his mum must be devastated he's had so many inkings in the last year since he turned 18.
'I was horrified,' Yvette said. 'I thought, 'Why have you done that to your body?'
'If he'd been around I would have cuffed him over the ears, like I used to do when he was cheeky. I could smack him so hard. I saw the photos and thought, 'I want to shake you.' I was really upset for days.
'But at least he's got enough money to get rid of them...'
