The most unlikely celeb friendships from Lady Gaga and June Brown to Adele and Sid Owen

WHEN it comes to celebrity collaborations, it’s fair to say it’s one of the more unusual ones.

Harry Styles has joined forces with Phoebe Waller-Bridge for the former One Direction star’s latest new music video – and it’s sent fans into meltdown.


Harry, 26, and Fleabag creator Phoebe, 35, can be seen dancing together for an epic routine while wearing matching glitzy outfits on the video for the single, Treat People With Kindness.

While it’s not clear how the collaboration came about or how long they have been pals – fans were delighted with the appearance of Harry’s co-star, with the video quickly going viral.

Well, they do say opposites attract in romantic relationships – so why not in friendships, too? And clearly it must be true because Harry and Phoebe are not the only unlikely showbiz pals.
