McFLY’s Tom Fletcher has released the stunning music video to accompany the release of The Musical Edition of his hit novel ‘The Christmasaurus’.

The tear-jerking picture released yesterday is based on the true story of teenager Lily Rice, who is the first European female to perform a backflip in a wheelchair.

Lily, who stars in the video alongside pop singer Tom, has a condition called hereditary spastic paraplegia which causes muscle rigidity.

Yet she was able to achieve the feat in Cariff after six hours’ practice.

The video is set to his track Afraid Of Heights, one of 14 new songs culled from his CD The Christmasaurus, the musical edition of his debut novel of the same name.

All written and performed by Tom, they are accompanied by a full orchestra and include surprise solos from Giovanna Fletcher – Tom’s wife – and Carrie Hope-Fletcher, his sister.

The Christmasaurus is also set for a stage show at London’s Eventim Apollo for a limited run from December 21 – 28.

Harry Judd, Matt Willis, Giovanna, and Carriewill are all set to appear alongside Tom on-stage in the festive spectacular.

The Christmasaurus is also being turned into an animated feature film directed by Michael Gracey, who recently directed the film The Greatest Showman On Earth starring Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron and Michelle Williams.

Tom remains a guitarist on McFly.

Are Danny and Georgia expecting a boy???… We’ll see in a few months but looks like he accidentally said they are having a mini Danny at the ITV Gala.

The McFly musician has dropped a major hint at the sex of the couple’s unborn child.
Speaking exclusively to OK! Online at the ITV Gala, Danny Jones appeared to reveal that he is set to become a father to a son, as he referred to the baby as a ‘he’.
When asked if he’s excited about fatherhood, Danny – who walked the red carpet with bandmate Harry Judd – replied: “Yes, I can’t wait. It keeps having hiccups, I love it, I just laugh my head off when he’s got hiccups! I’m like I know how that feels man!”

Meanwhile, Harry appeared to further confirm that Danny could be having a boy, as he said: “We’re all just excited to meet Danny’s kid – Danny Junior.”
Danny and Georgia, who married in 2014, previously shared a video that revealed how they told their friends and family the sweet news.
The first part of the video was Danny discovering he was going to be a dad, with the stunner sitting down with the singer on their bed, before handing him a positive pregnancy test.

He broke down in tears before embracing the former Miss Great Britain.
Another clip saw Danny’s McFly bandmates, Tom Fletcher and Harry Judd, find out another little one was on the way.
As they all pose for a picture, Danny announces they need to make room for one more leading to many shocked faces.

Danny previously sent fans wild after he posted a picture of a pair of his suede Chelsea boots – next to a very tiny pair of similar looking footwear.

However, wife Georgia then tweeted: “Just a pair of unisex grey shoes guys!! We absolutely 100% don’t know what we’re having! #lovesurprises.”

McFly band member turned children’s author Tom Fletcher has claimed a “world first” with a musical edition of his highly successful middle-grade novel The Christmasaurus.

Penguin Random House Children’s has described the concept as the “first time an author has written a soundtrack for their novel” . The book and 14-track CD will be released together next month (16th November) retailing at £14.99, with all the songs written and performed by Fletcher.

Meanwhile Fletcher’s wife, author Giovanna Fletcher, together with his McFly bandmate Harry Judd, Busted bandmate Matt Willis and sister Carrie Hope Fletcher will also appear in the ‘The Chistmasaurus – Live on Stage’. The show will run at the Eventim Apollo London from 21st to 28th December. The book is also being adapted into an animated film, by director Michael Gracey.

A partnership with Warburtons to offer “exciting and exclusive content” with the baking company is also on the cards, with details still to be announced.

Fletcher told The Bookseller how the idea for the accompanying CD began when he was writing The Christmasaurus, his first middle-grade children’s novel, published by Puffin in October 2016 – which has gone on to sell more than 163,281 copies according to Nielsen BookScan.

He said: “The whole idea for the book had stated because of a song I had written, ‘The Christmasaurus’. Because it had been inspired by a song, I carried on writing songs as I wrote the book. It helped me if there was a moment which matched a song, it felt natural to do that. When I finished the first draft, I had around nine or 10 songs and so I sent it to a few people including Michael Gracey. He contacted me a few days, and sent over some conceptual art, saying let’s make this into a film. I don’t think we had even done the deal with PRH yet.”

Fletcher believes the combination of music and books will provide a unique experience for the reader. He said: “It is really special to put the two things, [music and books], together. Books fire up your imagination and music touches your emotion in such a special way.”

The author and musician, who revealed a bookclub with WH Smith in September, described PRH Children’s m.d Francesca Dow as “amazing” because of how the publisher invested in the musical recording.

He said: “Francesca was amazing at being so accommodating about our vision. She came on board and invested in the music. I was so pleased that Francesca had shown such enthusiasm and believe in us.”

Dow told The Bookseller: “We are hugely excited about publishing The Christmasaurus, The Musical Edition – combining music and narrative to make a magical storytelling experience, we are so proud to publish this musical edition – a first for the industry – and another example of Tom’s incredible creativity for children. This is the latest in an exciting line up of Christmasaurus experiences that we know fans of the book and beyond will love.”

Fletcher also said the response from shops had been positive and The Bookseller understands that retailers have already ordered a high volume of copies, months before the announcement. He said: “The reaction from retailers has been overwhelming. I try not to pay too much attention but to have that faith in me is great, and this is before anyone has heart the recordings.

Fletcher described expanding into publishing as “refreshing” following his background in music, having first performed at the London Palladium aged nine. He said: “People can be jaded in music and there have been so many changes which have had a massive impact. We didn’t have the internet when we first started now school children can all download it onto their phones. It felt so fresh to come into the world of publishing. It felt like people really cared about what they do. People seem to care about my books as much as I do and I did not feel that in the music business. It is refreshing and now to have that same enthusiasm from publishing about music is amazing.”

He acknowledged that criticism can be difficult – he provoked the ire of some illustrators over copyright concerns in August and his inclusion in this year’s list of World Book Day titles, along with other celebrity authors, was slammed by some in the industry earlier this month.

Fletcher told The Bookseller: “I try not to think about winning the respect of the publishing industry. You invariably get people who are critical and it is really hard to read that and stay motivated. I try to avoid that as much as I can because no one liked to read negative stuff… But I completely understand that, from coming from a mainstream pop band, that I would need to earn the respect. I still feel I am proving myself but I hope people won’t judge the books before reading them.”

He added: “I had this when I was writing pop music and we had success but we never had the credibility people in rock bands had. We never had the recognition and that was frustrating but knowing kids who are seven or eight and reading it and love it, that is what it is all about.”

Fletcher’s latest book, The Creakers (PRH Children’s) was published on 5th October and has now 20,912 copies. The Dinosaur that Pooped a Planet!, his World Book Day picture book with McFly bandmate Dougie Poynter, is his most successful, with 220,458 copies sold (all figures according to Nielsen BookScan).

So finally Tom revealed who are going to be the special guests on The Christmasaurus Musical!! None others than Matt from Busted, Harry from a group you may know called… McFly? :P and his sister Carrie. Really great additions to the cast!
If you haven’t yet, you can still buy some tickets for The Christmasaurus!!

At a special preview event earlier today, musician, performer and writer Tom Fletcher announced the initial casting for The Christmasasaurus, his new family-friendly musical coming to the Eventim Apollo in December.

Carrie Hope Fletcher, Matt Willis, Harry Judd and Giovanna Fletcher will all star in the piece, directed by Derek Bond and adapted for the stage by Miranda Larson. The show will feature sleigh bells, dancing elves and a special appearance from Saint Nick.

Judd and Tom Fletcher are both members of the band McFly, while Willis performed in Busted. The trio combined to form a supergroup, McBusted, which toured the UK from 2013 to 2015. Willis’ further stage credits include Wicked, Flashdance and Footloose.

Carrie Hope Fletcher’s previous stage credits include Les Miserables and The Addams Family, which is about to conclude a UK tour, while Giovanna Fletcher made her concert debut in a one-off performance of Alan Menken’s A Christmas Carol at the Lyceum Theatre last year, also starring Carrie Hope Fletcher.

The musical is based on the 2016 novel of the same name, written by Tom Fletcher and nominated for the Children’s Book of the Year at the British Book Awards. The show follows the life of young boy William Trundle as he embarks on adventures across the North Pole.

Tom Fletcher says: “The book all began with a song, called “The Christmasaurus”! That song inspired this whole story and as I began writing the book I wrote more songs that helped me tell the story and bring the characters to life. The book was released last year but I wanted to get these songs out there too.”

Fletcher has also announced that The Christmasaurus will be adapted into an animated feature film, directed by Michael Gracey (who makes his directorial debut with The Greatest Showman on Earth which opens this Christmas and stars Hugh Jackman and Zac Efron).

The Christmasaurus runs at the Eventim Apollo from 21 to 28 December.

[x5]PHOTOSHOOTS > 2017 > FABULOUS MAGAZINE

The former Strictly champ opened up to Fabulous about his mental health difficulties, and issues with drugs and alcohol.

Harry Judd arrives at our shoot still revelling in the hour or so’s peace the car journey here has just afforded him. With 20-month-old Lola and six-week-old Kit causing carnage at home, quiet and calm aren’t usually on the agenda these days.

“I love being with them and I’m so lucky, but god, it’s hard work!” he admits. “I don’t know how people have four of them. But it’s a crazy, wonderful thing.”

Despite the lack of sleep, Harry is remarkably bright-eyed and bushy-tailed today. He’s currently in a really good, healthy place. After years of battling debilitating anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorder, the demons are firmly at bay. Harry opens up about those mental health difficulties and issues with drugs and alcohol, plus how he overcame them through exercise in his book Get Fit, Get Happy, which is serialised in The Sun from tomorrow.

Part-memoir, part-fitness guide, it’s an uplifting and accessible read, full of photos of Harry demonstrating how readers can work out on the go – at the bus stop, in the office, in the shower (cue some gratuitous topless shots of a dripping wet Harry). It’s also intensely honest.

“It’s not a plan, it’s more: ‘Here’s my philosophy, here’s my story, here’s how fitness helped me,’ he explains. “My mental health has been up and down since I was 19, and I’m coming up to 32 now. It’s something I’m going to have to keep tabs on for the rest of my life, but exercise is something I can control. It focuses me, it’s productive and it makes me feel good. I’m happier in my job, my relationship, everything.

“I don’t drink alcohol any more, I quit smoking, I certainly don’t do any drugs – it’s been a long time since I touched drugs. Those were the reasons anxiety reared its ugly head.”

Harry has more incentive than ever to manage his mental health after the births of his two children – becoming a dad has played a significant role in helping him stay well. After turning to IVF to conceive Lola following two years of infertility issues, Harry and his violinist wife Izzy, 33, were prepared to undergo the whole gruelling process again for baby number two.

However, life is full of surprises. “We were planning another round of IVF for this summer, but Izzy was like: ‘Oh, let’s just see what happens’. And you know, as a husband after a nine-month pregnancy and a bit of a delay after that, I was like: ‘OK. Yes, let’s see what happens!’

“And then she was pregnant and part of me was like: ‘This is amazing’, but also… yeah.” Harry sighs wearily and then laughs, quick to clarify that he’s in no way moaning about his lot.
…keep reading.
