CROTCH GRABBING FOR A GOOD CAUSE

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has now taken over One Direction and cats doing funny stuff as leader of the entire internet, thanks to 6.7 bajillion celebs getting onboard to chuck a bucket of freezing water over themselves for a brill cause. Good eggs.

But just when you thought it couldn’t be topped, a brand new viral campaign has hit the online world which basically involves grabbing your bits and pieces and having a good old grope. Who knew charity work could be so awesome?

Check One Two have launched the #FeelingNuts campaign, which is set to see anyone with a peen having a fondle of their bits and pieces to help highlight the ways that lads can check themselves for testicular cancer.

It’s obviously a great cause and a bit of fun, plus it does mean that loads of hot young thangs like Josh, Jaymi, JJ and George are technically giving us permission to have a perve at their crotch region. GOOD-O.

A bit like the ice bucket challenge, there’s also nominations involved, and the Union J boys have put Jason Deruuuulooooo, Louis Walsh (*shudder*), Mark Wright and ACTUAL NIALL HORAN up to have a feel.

Come on Nialler, we’ll literally never be sad again.

McFly’s Dougie Poynter also had a bit of a squeeze of his manparts for the cause, along with errr.. girlfriend Elie Goulding. Either she’s just showing a bit of solidarity, or she’s hiding something that we didn’t really ever want to know about.

AWOO, nice one Ellie Gee for showing that girls can get involved too. By just pretending, NOT by grabbing hold of the nearest willy. That could get a bit awkward.

What do you reckon to the Feeling Nuts campaign? Gonna get involved? Excited for Nialler to hopefully have a go? Let’s talk crotch grabbing below.

MORE PROOF THEY ARE KINGS OF THE WORLD

While many popstar types might have a personal manicurist for their nails and a stylist to make their hair glossier than a prize winning pony’s, McBusted have a slightly different approach when it comes to getting ready to attend serious band meetings.

Yep, this lot turn up dressed as a bunch of magical, mythical and fantastical characters. Apart from Harry of course, who’s just wearing his usual clothes.

WE JOKE.

Still, just when you thought you couldn’t love this lot more than you already do, they go and decide to call a meeting to decide on important tour and potential album business, but enforce a strict dresscode that involves false beards and robes.

Here’s Dougie having an extremely imporant convo with the band’s manager, Fletch…

Oh, and apparently James took thing the most seriously and came as The Invisible Man, just in case you were wondering where he’s hiding.

If you were wondering what exciting things the boys were working on this week, we’re guessing it might have a little to do with their music as Dougie revealed this week that they’ve been writing some ‘cool songs’ with both Alex from All Time Low and Mark Hoppus from Blink-182.

*Squeee*

On a scale of one to UTTERLY EXCELLENT, how much has this put a smile on your face?

Last sunday Dougie went to the Reading Festival with Alex from All Time Low to see Blink 182 and You Me At Six perform and some lucky fans meet him there and obviously immortalized the moment with pics.

Dougie Poynter reveals pop supergroup are also collaborating with All Time Low

McBusted, the pop supergroup featuring members of McFly and Busted, are working with Mark Hoppus of Blink-182 on their new album.

The group are penning original material together after first forming for an arena tour earlier this year, in which songs from both bands’ back catalogues were performed.

The news was revealed by Dougie Poynter, originally of McFly, during a Twitter conversation with a fan earlier today (August 26). Asked how excited he was about making an album with McBusted, he responded affirmatively and confirmed that writing sessions with both Hoppus and Alex Gaskarth of US pop-punks All Time Low had taken place.

McBusted previously suggested they would not record together with Tom Fletcher of McFly saying, “For now it’s just the tour, but if we come up with something and write some songs that we think are incredible, then we’ll release it,” at a London press conference in 2013.

Meanwhile, Blink-182 headlined Reading And Leeds Festivals 2014 this weekend, bringing toilet jokes, flames and hits to both sites on Sunday and Friday night respectively.

James Bourne might be pretty adament he wants to nab the song they wrote with Niall Horan for One Direction for himself, but even if that whole plan falls through it sounds like McBusted’s first album together’s gonna be a ruddy corker anyways. And how do we know this, exactly? ‘Cause the lads have only been working with American pop punksters All Time Low on new music, haven’t they? GAH.

Yuhuh – now the tour’s over the McBusted boys have been hitting the studio to get the supergroup some songs to their name, and it sounds like it’s all going swimmingly tbqh.

Taking to Twitter, ATL frontman fella Alex Gaskarth teased: “Had a blast working with the @mcbusted dudes today! Good vibes all around’, adding “Really enjoying getting to write for some other bands / artists. Takes you out of your comfort zone, keeps things fresh! I feel ALIVE(erect)” [sic]. Okay, less of the erection business please Alex. There’s only so much we can deal with at this time on a Thursay without that image being thrown in the works.

In further, slightly-related news to bulk this story up a bit, Tom Fletcher recently told Digital Spy the band won’t be chasing any trends with their new material. He said: “We’re very proud of the fact that the songs we play now still feel as fresh as they did ten years ago when they were released.” So there you go.

What d’ya reckon, then? Dying to hear McBusted’s new stuff? Give us a comment or something. GO ON.

FOLLOWING the success of their first two children’s books, Tom and Dougie are back with a third tale about young Danny and his pooping pet dinosaur.

Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter are like two naughty school boys.

They’re fascinated with dinosaurs, make fart noises and laugh at each other’s poo jokes.

But these childish traits have come in handy – they’ve used their toilet humour to pen a hilarious set of children’s books.

Their first offering, The Dinosaur That Pooped Christmas, launched in 2012 to critical acclaim.

It won the Best eBook at the Digital World Conference and was called a “masterminded work of genius” by mischievous parents.

“It literally started off as a joke about four years ago,” said Dougie.

“We were on the tour bus and we were supposed to be writing songs but we kept coming up with funny book titles instead. Then the joke became a reality.”

The boys – both members of McFly and supergroup McBusted – approach writing the adventures of Danny and his pet dinosaur in the same way they write their popular chart hits.

Tom told us: “It’s a very similar process. We spend the day talking about fun stuff like dinosaurs, space and time travel. Then we just geek out for a while.

“We fill up on caffeine, go to the field in the back of my house, sit under a fallen tree and write a book.”

Dougie admits it makes quite a romantic picture until a “swarm of bees come along and ruin it”.

The dinosaur’s explosive eruptions have seen him poo Christmas and a planet so far, but his latest feat really puts his bowels to the test.

Dino must poo his way home from the past. Cue hilarity and (we’re guessing) tons of Andrex.

“We wanted to write a book that we would have read as kids, and would love to read to our children,” says Tom, whose wife Giovanna recently gave birth to the couple’s first child, Buzz.

However Tom, 29, admits that his five-month-old son isn’t quite old enough to appreciate the stories just yet.

“He’s too young to understand the words at the moment. I don’t want him to grow up knowing that this is how the book goes.

“I want him to understand it and find the bit where the dinosaur poo hilarious.”

Dougie adds: “You don’t want him to be the first boy that doesn’t find poo funny.”

Why do kids find poo so funny?

“It’s a natural instinct they’re born with,” jokes Tom. “The only fear they’re born with is the fear of falling. The only thing we instantly laugh at is poo.

“We still laugh at poo jokes.”

Really?

“Yep, every day,” says Dougie. “And farts. We’re the gassiest band in the world. We constantly fart.”

Tom add that he’s “not that flatulent” but “Harry and Danny deal the offensive ones”.

Both Tom and Dougie insist that the book’s main character wasn’t named after bandmate Danny Jones, although he did seem to provide some inspiration.

“Danny’s confused,” laughs Tom. “He tells everyone [adopts a northern accent] ‘They named the dinosaur after me’. The boy is called Danny, not the dinosaur.”

Dougie adds: “We don’t know any other guys’ names. When Danny was a kid I bet he was really mischievous and we wanted our kid to be like that. But still innocent.”

Aside from writing about poo, it’s rumoured that McBusted are in the process of writing songs for a new album and plan to release a single.

For now, though, they’re enjoying a bit of a summer break, with Dougie having just returned from Hong Kong with his singer girlfriend Ellie Goulding.

What do they enjoy reading during their time off?

Tom’s making his way through Inferno by Dan Brown and Dougie is “learning quite a lot” from Explore The Deadly World: Bugs, Snakes, Spiders and Crocodiles.

And have they thought about what the dinosaur will dump next?

“We’ve got lots of poo planned,” says Tom.

But Dougie warns: “He’s got problems – maybe he should see a doctor.”

The promo for Dougie and Tom’s new dino poop book has started and you can read below an interesting interview, among other things you’ll find out that Aaron Paul is a big fan of Tom and that Dougie rapped to get Buzz to sleep once.

[x5]EVENTS AND APPEARANCES > 2014 > THE DINOSAUR THAT POOPED THE PAST PROMO, LONDON – AUGUST 18

The hunting habits of the T-Rex. A slightly unorthodox baby-sleep trick. How to enlist a massive US actor as a super fan. Yep, M&Blearnt a lot during a 15-minute interview with Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter

As well as being in a band and – in Tom’s case – enjoying new dad life with five-month-old son Buzz, the McFly-turned-McBusted pair are behind a series of kids’ books, the third of which has just been released.

The Dinosaur That Pooped The Past sticks with the key themes of the first two stories – dinosaurs and poo – but adds in a bit of time travel that toddlers will love.

M&B caught up with Tom and Dougie to find out why dinosaurs make them tick and how Buzz is getting on.

Q: So, what’s your writing process?

Tom: There are fields at the back of my house and one of them has a fallen tree. If it’s sunny, we just go and sit there to write. It’s like we’re pretending to be in Winnie The Pooh – all that’s missing is a picnic basket. Although last time we were there, a massive swarm of bees flew really closely past us. I was like “Dougie, don’t move”. It was one of the weirdest moments of my life.

Q: What is it about dinosaurs that make them good for children’s books?

Dougie: Dinosaurs are rad. Although apparently the T-Rex wasn’t actually a hunter – he was a giant scavenger that probably had feathers. If you think about it, all the hunters we have these days are pretty epic, fast and agile, but the T-Rex was huge with tiny puny hands and bad vision.

Tom: We both grew up loving dinosaurs, like Dougie used to breed reptiles…

Dougie: Which aren’t dinosaurs.

Tom: No, but they’re in the same vein.

Dougie: I loved Denver, the Last Dinosaur growing up. My mum took me to the Natural History Museum for the first time when I was three because she was trying to explain to me what Denver and dinosaurs were. I was blown away.

Q: Tom, what’s it like being able to read the books to Buzz?

Tom: Really, really cool. He can’t completely understand what the stories are about – he just likes the pictures and the fact that I read them stupidly. But I actually want to stop reading them to him, so that when he’s old enough to understand, he won’t know what’s coming and will laugh. It’s like if I tell him every day that Darth Vadar is Luke’s dad, he won’t have the shock moment when he sees The Empire Strikes Back.

Q: How’s he getting on?

Tom: He can sit up on his own now and grab things. We’ll start him on solids soon, too – I sit with my cereal bowl on his highchair and he watches my mouth as I eat and practices chewing… like he’s working it out.

He can’t crawl yet, but if you put him on the floor on his front, he’ll suddenly end up here [gestures along the floor] and facing the other way. I don’t know how. It’s like when you watch a snail: it doesn’t move, but as soon as you turn your back… 

Q: Dougie, are you the best with Buzz out of the boys in the band?

Dougie: Because there’s nobody else here I’m going to go with ‘Yes’. Actually, I’m better than Tom with him. 

Tom: Dougie rapped Buzz to sleep once. I think it was an N.W.A one. Completely inappropriate… but it worked.

Q: Tom, the YouTube wedding and pregnancy videos you made with your wife Giovanna were massive hits. Have you got plans for any more?

Tom: Not at the moment. We want to do more but since having Buzz, and of course everything with the band, I just haven’t had time. We couldn’t believe how popular they were, though.

Dougie: Aaron Paul from Breaking Bad was a fan. A few months ago, I was hanging out with him and he asked what I did. I explained I was in a band and must’ve said something that made him realise it was with Tom. He knew the video and was totally stoked, a massive fan of Tom [laughs]. I was like “I know that guy. He’s not as cool as you think… I wrote it all for him”.

Q: Tom, do you have a parenting tip for new dads?

Tom: The first month is hard as it’s so brand new. But the mum carries the baby, gives birth, and generally has that instant bond.

And dads don’t start really getting that until about a month in – when your baby recognises you coming into a room, gives you smiles and you’re the one making them laugh.

So, I’d say it’s about patience and, for those first few weeks, looking after mum and making sure she can care for your baby the best she can.

Q: Finally, do you both have a favourite moment in the new book?

Both: The poo bit.

Tom: Actually, my favourite part is when they loop-the-loop on the swing to go back in time.

Dougie: It’s never been proven that once you do that you won’t time travel. So who knows?

Tom: And if anyone has done it, they probably haven’t come back.
