Two Harry Styles super fans have claimed to have been behind the rainbow of colour that filled the O2 during Harry Styles London date.

As he played Sweet Creature, the auditorium lit up with the lights of camera phones, only instead of white light they beamed out a giant rainbow from each section of the O2.

Now two fans, Ksenia, 17, and Luna, 20, have come forward to claim responsibility for the spectacle, claiming to have put together 14,000 pieces of paper containing instructions and coloured paper to distribute to their fellow concert goers.

They say it took a month to plan as part of the Rainbow H Project, and three months to put into action, calling on other fans to help distribute the 14,000 pieces of paper, creating a team of 20.

Speaking to Metro.co.uk, they explained: In October 2017 we suggested we do a project for Harry during the London shows and we came up with an idea of creating a massive pride flag.

We counted how many seats there are in each row in each block so everyone would get a colour. I have personally done 14000 of those small instructions with colours.

The whole preparation took us three months. Last night our small project team walked around the arena and gave the colours to the audience.

They claim security were not happy with the plan, who allegedly confiscated 5,000 bits of paper from two of the girls handing them out.

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO MADE YESTERDAY HAPPEN?❤
We did had some issues as some of you noticed as some security wasn't too fond of bringing the papers in BUT we still made it and are gonna figure it out for today to make it happen again BIGGER AND BETTER

Love,

They added that Harry had no idea it was coming and was taken as by surprise as the rest of us.

Ksenia told us: I am proud of myself and our big fandom. I was standing right in the front row last night and people shouted to me “you did it”. I was happy that we could do something for Harry and create a beautiful safe space for everyone.

The Rainbow H Project are planning to do the same again at tonights gig, saying it will be bigger and better.

One concert goer, who thought Harry was behind the turn of events, told Metro.co.uk: It was stunning to look at! He was waving the LGBT flag throughout the gig too. He loves showing his support for the community.

During the rest of the night Harry cracked out all the fan favourites for the gig. One Directions What Makes You Beautiful made the crowd go wild as did Sign Of The Times and his encore of Kiwi.

At one point during the evening he even had the whole of the O2 singing Happy Birthday to one concert goer who turned 18.

Can I just take a second to tell you that every single one of you in this building looks absolutely fabulous! he told the crowd on opening the show.

Ive lived in London for about seven years now and I very much feel like Im coming home now, thank you for being so welcoming to us. And I think its going to be quite fun.
