Harry Styles recently bought a luxury home in north London

After splashing out on a £3 million north London bachelor pad, Harry Styles will be intrigued to hear that his new house has a paranormal guest.

The four-bedroom home is reportedly 'well known to locals as being haunted' by highwayman Dick Turpin who frequented a nearby pub in the 1700s. 

'Locals say he used to hide in the courtyard next to the pub waiting for his victims to come down the road before robbing them,' says a source. 

The 18-year-old One Direction singer, who moved to Primrose Hill to be closer to his celeb pals, could well be woken by the noise of the spook and his steed. 

'The ghost of Turpin has been spotted in the window,' the source tells The Sun.

'According to legend you can hear the sounds of his horse Bess's hooves.'
