Set in Brighton in 1957, Burgess is forced to hide his sexuality as ­homosexuality is still illegal in Britain. He marries school teacher ­Marion, played by The Crown’s Emma Corrin, but soon becomes wrapped up in a love affair with museum curator Patrick Hazelwood.

Styles is also joined by The Last Kingdom and Luther actor David Dawson, who plays Hazelwood in the film, and together the pair are reportedly set to take on some steamy scenes.

An insider told The Sun the two actors will strip off together twice on a closed set to film the sequences, while another scene will see Styles naked by himself.

The insider continued: ‘He always wants to do things that people wouldn’t expect and challenge what people think about him — and this film will really do that.’

Styles himself has never publicly defined his sexuality, though he has been praised by the LGBTQ+ community and its allies for his refusal to follow restrictive gender norms.

Speaking to The Guardian in 2019, the singer said he thought of sexuality simply as ‘something that’s fun’, adding: ‘Honestly? I can’t say I’ve given it any more thought than that.’
