Last month, Love on Tour cracked the top ten of the highest-grossing tours in history, surpassing $400 million in sales.

The concerts began in 2021 after a previous delay due to the Covid-19 pandemic. They have spanned Styles' sophomore album, Fine Line, and his most recent release, Harry's House.

The Watermelon Sugar singer has since become known for his eccentric and magnetic stage presence, often going viral for hilarious interactions with fans - and Edinburgh was no exception!

While performing Cinema on Saturday, Styles picked up a fan's teddy bear that just so happened to resemble the singer.

Fans flooded the comments with hilarious responses, with one writing, "He's been doing love on tour for so long that it's just turned into a series of bits and intrusive thoughts."

"We need to check on dad more often guys," another joked.
