Harry Styles would rather be gunged than be in a room with all of his ex-girlfriends.

The 23-year-old singer - who has previously dated the likes of Taylor Swift, Kendall Jenner and Caroline Flack - revealed during an extended interview with showbiz pal Nick Grimshaw on BBC Radio 1 that he'd prefer to be covered in green slime than be confronted by his exes.

The confession came after the radio DJ asked: ''Did you think we'd do something weird like bring all your exes in?''

To which Harry replied: ''I think I'd take the gunge.''

Despite his reputation as a ladies' man, the dark-haired hunk revealed he hasn't dated anyone in ''a long time'' because he's been busy filming the war movie 'Dunkirk' and making his first album as a solo artist.

Harry shared: ''I haven't dated in a long time really because I went away to do the movie then did the album so I haven't in a while. I have a couple of candles left still, though.''

Harry also opened up on his best and worst dating habits, admitting he snores during his sleep, while he described his four nipples - two of which are, in fact, just dark marks on his chest - as being his best trait.

Harry, who first rose to fame as a member of One Direction, said: ''I think I snore and also I quite like routine, so I don't know if I'm incredibly spontaneous. Best trait ... I don't know, it's weird to pick your best. Shall we go with the nipples thing.''

The star also suggested dating as a celebrity is barely any different to dating as a regular person, reasoning that the popularity of apps like Tinder has ensured everyone already knows everything about their would-be date.

Asked if it's hard to date as a celebrity, Harry explained: ''I don't know, maybe. I feel like with all of the stuff how people date now with all online stuff I feel like you can do that (Google) with anyone really if you're looking at someone's profile before seeing them it's kinda the same...

''No, I used to (research dates), then I said I'm not going to do that anymore, it's impossible to go in without a perception of someone and you've never met them and I started feeling like that was wrong and weird.''
