Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter draw a big crowd for their book signing at Waterstones

A loud mix of teenage girls and children packed into Waterstones book shop to meet McBusted band members Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter.

The duo were in the Broad Street store to sign copies of their new children’s book The Dinosaur That Pooped The Past.

But fans of the duo from their McFly days, as well as the new hybrid McBusted band, made up a majority of the crowd.

Cheryl Dibden, events co-ordinator at Waterstones Broad Street, said more than 200 people turned up to see the heartthrobs on Thursday.

She said: “There was a queue all the way round the inside of the store and right out to Broad Street.

“The first two girls were there at midday and the boys were held up a bit so we didn’t kick off until about 7pm.

“It was great having the event so close to Christmas, with it being a children’s book and the boys themselves were fun.”

A dinosaur was also on hand to keep the crowds entertained while they were waiting to see Dougie and Tom.

It is the third book in the series written by the duo which features the historical adventures of Danny and his pet Dinosaur.

Ms Dibden said: “There were an awful lot of teenage girls who were all buying this children’s book and some hyperactive staff.

“It was also quite interesting that we had quite a few babies and young children and I think the parents would have been McFly fans.

“We had some really good feedback and the boys were an absolute delight.”

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 Dinosaur That Pooped the Past by Tom Fletcher & Dougie Poynter is out to buy now.
