Lanarkshire schoolgirl Anna Carty contacted DJ Katy J at Capital FM explaining she needed a bit of help finding a partner for the do this week.
And when she played a message seemingly from the 28-year-old superstar accepting her invitation to attend the dance, the teenager appeared to be thrilled, the Sunday Mail reports.

On air Katy J told the schoolgirl: “We tried our best to work some magic behind the scene and we do have a message from Harry Styles for you if you’d like to hear it?”
She then played a voice that sounded like Harry’s saying he’d love to be there while he’s in town for his sell-out Glasgow show.
It said: “Anna, how’s it going? It’s Harry Styles here – hello. Look, Katy J passed on your invite to the prom and I’m sure it’ll be a good Scottish party.
“I’d love to be there, so just send me the details and I’ll see what I can do. See you soon.”
However, it later emerged the voice belonged to Capital London DJ and TV host Roman Kemp.

Anna from Wishaw explained: “It wasn’t real. I enjoyed being on the radio and it was a good laugh.
“It was just a bit of fun and I’m looking forward to my prom. I knew when I heard the voice on the phone that it wasn’t Harry Styles.”
But a radio insider said: “Many of us were astonished when we found out this was a hoax and Capital in Scotland thought it was fine to broadcast.
“Thousands of listeners heard that what they thought was Harry Styles saying he hoped he’d be able to make it to Anna’s prom as he’d be in Scotland for his concerts.”
