Hopefully we’ll hear some new McFly music soon!

McFly’s bassist Dougie Poynter says the group have done a lot of “hard” work on the sixth album, but won’t be rush releasing it

McFly have finished a “good chunk” of their new album.

The ‘All About You’ group – which also features Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones and Dougie Poynter – haven’t released a new record since ‘Above the Noise’ in 2010, and the hunky bass player says they are well on the way to completing their sixth studio effort, but he says they won’t be rushing to release it.

He told The Sun newspaper: Writing is fun but it’s hard.

“It takes a lot of time but we were away for a while.

“It won’t be out until it’s ready but we got a good chunk done.”

Meanwhile, the 29-year-old rocker is set to star in upcoming British film ‘The Academy’ after he landed the part after taking acting lessons and successfully auditioning to play superhero Hale, who is “captured in a big plot twist”, and has teased that he has more movie work in the pipeline.

He added: “I’ve started shooting the film.

“That’s here in the UK. There are other things too, but I can’t say. I’m very excited.”

A previous update on their eagerly-anticipated record came from drummer Harry, 31, in December, who said their break made them a better band.

At the time, he said: “We definitely want to keep progressing and growing as a band. Danny has been working a lot in the studio this year in production, Tom is a brilliant writer and Dougie has been out acting and doing other things so he’ll be bringing in some new influences and stuff.

“There are already a couple of songs that I think we’ve got that we all love, and hopefully we’ll all be going in the same direction.”

Tom’s videos never disappoint:)

McFly’s Tom Fletcher has created a video to celebrate his wife Giovanna’s birthday, and it’ll melt even the coldest of hearts.

After delivering a musical wedding speech for the ages and a Mother’s Day video to make everyone rethink their Michael Buble purchases, the 31-year-old has whipped up another reel to raise expectations of men everywhere.

This time, Tom has decided to celebrate his wife Giovanna’s 32nd birthday in a video titled ‘All About Gi’ – which brings together all the highlights of her career and personal life into one adorable package.

Starting from when they met at school aged 13, the video journeys through old photographs as they traverse their relationship – marking major milestones such as moving in together, getting married and having kids.

Speaking about their first meeting, Tom said: ‘We first met at school. We were both 13 and just by chance our surnames began with the same letter, me Fletcher, she Falcone, which meant fate brought us together in assembly on her first day at school.

‘And it was on that exact same spot that I proposed and we got engaged. That spot held a lot of significance and relevance that we didn’t know at the time.’

After the video cycles through footage of the pair growing up together, Tom lays the final emotional smackdown to ensure husband envy worldwide.

‘I’m not really one to celebrate my own birthday, but I think as we get older, and as I see you getting older, I really start to see the importance of celebrating it.

‘A whole year has gone by in your life and if you look back at what you’ve achieved in just this year, since your last birthday, I mean it’s pretty amazing.

‘And if that’s not something to celebrate, then, what is?’

2-4-1 Pizza Express isn’t going to cut it this year, is it? Heaven’s sake, Tom.

Harry is giving the new Busted album a 9/10 apparently. Which song do you think he doesn’t like?

Harry Judd has admitted he’s not a fan of one of Busted’s songs on their new album ‘Night Driver’

Harry Judd told Busted’s Matt Willis there is only one song on their new album ‘Night Driver’ which he skipped.

The McFly drummer was all “fired up” after hearing their comeback LP – their first in three years since 2003’s ‘A Present for Everyone’ – and is thrilled the trio are back with together as a three with Charlie Simpson, who quit the rock/pop group in 2005 and previously vowed never to return.

And, although he hasn’t named the track, he admits he feels “rude” for pointing it out.

Asked if he’s heard the new record, he exclusively told BANG Showbiz: “I have checked it out actually I was on What’s App with Matt [Willis] and James [Bourne] just the other day just to take a moment to congratulate them and tell them I was loving the album.

“It’s really cool I was saying to Matt there was only one song that I skip which is pretty good going.

“He was like, ‘Which song?’ And then I was like, ‘I can’t say, I already regret saying it because it’s quite rude!’

“I’m genuinely loving it and it’s good to have them back as a three. The Busted album has got me fired up.”

Meanwhile, the 30-year-old sticksman recently revealed ‘Getting It Out’, from Busted/McFly supergroup McBusted’s 2014 self-titled LP, will be on McFly’s new album.

He previously said: “One of the songs from album six ended up on the McBusted album, which was ‘Getting It Out’. We recorded it in Texas but then recorded it for the McBusted album.”

And Harry recently admitted that McFly fans “hated” McBusted – which was also comprised of Busted’s Matt and James and himself, Tom, Dougie Poynter and Danny Jones.

The hunky rocker says they are keen to get new music out because their fans were “frustrated” with the ‘Air Guitar’ band.

He said: “It’s been a while since we have just been McFly and a lot of our fans are frustrated.

“Although McBusted has been a success, a lot of McFly fans were like, ‘I hate McBusted!'”

First of all, Merry Xmas everyone!!!
And as a gift for you all this xmas, here’s a new interview and photoshoot of Dougie with 1883 Magazine, he talks McFly, tour, LA, acting… you can see by yourself reading it below. I also added all the pics from the photoshoot to the gallery so you can enjoy the view too:P

All the credit for the pics goes to Asia Werbel.

[x19]PHOTOSHOOTS > 2016 > 1883 MAGAZINE PHOTOSHOOT

Dougie Poynter first burst onto the scene back in 2004 as one quarter of beloved pop band McFly when he was just a young teen. In their career, spanning over fourteen years, the band has amassed 19 top 10 singles, 5 albums and have just completed their 14th tour in September, after postponing it due to Harry Judd slipping a disc.

1883 caught up with McFly’s charming bass guitarist, after making him swing from a few metal poles, to talk the recent tour, being a musical influence, warming up in LA and what the actual hell is a Mary Berry!

Hey, thanks for swinging around on those metal poles for us.

[Laughs] No problem!

At least you don’t have to go to the gym today. That’s arm day done!

Working out I usually suck at it but that was the one thing I’m actually good at.

So, today’s shoot was fine for you then!

Yeah, if it was anything to do with legs, I would’ve sucked.

Leg day is awful though.

Leg is horrible! But I’m constantly doing leg day though, because these things just will not get any bigger.

Oh, really?

I’m an ectomorph.

What’s that?

It one of the figures, there’s like ectomorph and endomorph. I’m definitely ectomorph, I just burn it all off.

That’s convenient at Christmas time, you can just pig out and its fine.

Yeah but not for a dude though, but I guess so [laughs].

So, you’ve finished touring…

Yeah finished touring about three months ago, is it three? I think it’s three months ago now.

And you’ve just released your live album called anthology off the back of that, so how was touring as just McFly instead of as a super group?

Touring was cool, it was really cool. It’s always good fun to hang with the guys it was going form a really big production that was McBusted which was like every single song had some kind of big production element to it. To go back to literally like zero production. In fact, I think we didn’t even have a truck on this tour we just had like a trailer with just amplifiers in it. We didn’t take our own PA we just used the house PA.

Did it feel weird to return to four after 18 months as being a pretty big group?

No actually because McBusted was 18 months McFly has been 13, 14 years. So, it didn’t really feel weird at all.

How did it feel revisiting some of your older songs, some of which you have never played live before?

The most stressful thing was playing 66 songs in total over three nights, I mean that’s a lot to remember.

Were there any songs where you forgot the chords and the lyrics?

Oh, yeah there was some songs I hadn’t played since I was 16. The only thing that was going through my head the entire time was don’t fuck up! Don’t fuck up! Don’t fuck up!

I mean that’s a pretty solid motto! How did you think your music has evolved and changed with you?

Sorry, my hands smell odd, probably swinging from the poles. But yeah everything seems to be a reaction to the previous. In every single way from the way we play it to the types of songs that they are. Everything is a reaction to the last one right up until our last album that we released six years ago.

Do you think they represent the stages of your life you were at when you made them or not?

I think you can definitely tell like what was going through our heads. I mean they’re all about girls [laughs].

Since this tour was about looking back over what you’ve done, what would you say to your younger self?

Mmhhh. I don’t know there’s a lot but is it really a good idea to go back in time and change things? I don’t know.

Umm, whatever it is don’t do it. If you think it’s a bad idea it probably is.
…keep reading.

We trust you Harry..:P

McFly want to progress and grow, and drummer Harry Judd thinks the different endeavours they have pursued while on a break will help them make a better album
Harry Judd thinks McFly’s break will make them a better band.

The ‘All About You’ group – which also features Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones and Dougie Poynter – haven’t released a new album since ‘Above the Noise’ in 2010 and the drummer thinks their years of experience means they’re in a great place when it comes to putting a new record together.

He said: “We definitely want to keep progressing and growing as a band. Danny has been working a lot in the studio this year in production, Tom is a brilliant writer and Dougie has been out acting and doing other things so he’ll be bringing in some new influences and stuff.

“There are already a couple of songs that I think we’ve got that we all love, and hopefully we’ll all be going in the same direction.

“We have so much stuff that’s unreleased, and we have the power of hindsight now and we can say, ‘No that’s wrong, that’s wrong, that’s right.’ And we can take elements of what has worked and put it all together.”

The band last went into the studio with James Bourne and Matt Willis as their supergroup McBusted to record their 2014 self-titled album, and Harry admits their fans are more than ready to hear some new McFly music.

He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: “We’re writing in January and I’m very excited, I think the fans have waited a long time for new McFly music. Even though we said we were writing in January the fans keep on tweeting me and to say, ‘Really? Is this really happening?’ It is definitely happening.”

GIOVANNA and Tom fletcher are currently gearing up for a magical Christmas with their two sons, Buddy and Buzz.

But now the McFly singer has revealed he could have missed out on the festivities – after he was nearly killed when a tractor lost one of its wheels.

In a scene likened to that of horror movie Final Destination, the 31 year old was out for a run when the gigantic tyre fell away from the vehicle.

And with headphones making him unaware of his surroundings, the singer was just inches away from death.
“The tyre was as tall as me, it came off a moving tractor and crashed about half a foot in front of me,” the father of two told the Metro.

“It was like a scene from final destination!

“I had headphones in so I didn’t hear anything.

“The tyre took out a fence panel next to me, the tractor skidded on to the path right where I was, and then the other wheel nearly hit an oncoming bus.

“It was so scary.”

The musician then went on to joke that it was actually his poor fitness that potentially saved his life.

“If I was in better shape and running a bit faster, I probably would have been hit,” the popstar said.

Tom and Giovanna recently delighted their fans by announcing some huge news just in time for Christmas.

Having already revealed that his new book, The Christmasaurus, was becoming a live show, the Love Is Easy singer then declared that his wife would be taking on a starring role.

Taking to Instagram, the performer told his 1.4 million followers: “That’s right…@mrsgifletcher is going to be starring in The Christmasaurus LIVE!!!!”

The show is due to take place at the Eventim Apollo London next December and will feature “music, magic, [Tom] and some very special guests”.

And it will certainly be a busy year for the popstar, after he also confirmed that McFly will begin writing their next album in January.

“We’ve got a place that’s completely isolated and we’re going to write some songs,” he told the Metro.

Meanwhile Giovanna has been having a difficult time on social media, after online trolls accused her of not wanting her own children.

The 31 year old hit back at critics in a long message where she told her fans she believed “in the good of people”.

That’s music to our ears.

It’s been a long six-year wait for McFly fans who are eager for some brand new music from the band, but we have some fantastic news for you: they’re refreshed and ready to get back in the studio.

Band member Tom Fletcher – who recently released his first children’s novel The Christmasaurus – has revealed that they are in a great place and excited about creating something truly special together in the new year.

“There’s been such a big gap between McFly’s albums, that now we’re at the stage where we’re not tied down to a particular sound,” Tom told Digital Spy.

“There’s enough of a line drawn that we could come back with whatever sound we want. For the first time, there’s no pressure or musical expectations on us that could limit us or dictate where we need to go.

“I hate the idea of having to conform with what’s current and what sounds good on radio at the moment. When we go into the studio, I want it to be with a completely fresh, open mind.

“I genuinely feel that, because there’s been such a gap and because of McBusted, this is the first time that I feel completely refreshed with McFly.

“There’s something really exciting about that and if we can get our heads in the right place and pull together, it’s totally possible for us to make the best album of our career.”

That sounds just fine with us.

But first, tickets for Tom’s new play The Christmasaurus go on sale at 9am tomorrow (December 9).

It’s based on his hugely popular children’s book of the same name and will take place at London’s Eventim Apollo on December 22, 2017.

“The book was a natural place for it to start, but I always hoped it could be a live show or a film,” Tom told us.

That movie is on the way too, but could be a few years off yet. It will be an animation directed by Michael Gracey, but Tom isn’t sure if he’ll be voicing one of the characters himself.

“Part of me is really excited about seeing who could do it,” he said. “The dad in the book is basically me, but you need to be a very talented actor to do voices for films.

“If there is a part for me, I wouldn’t say no. But I’m looking forward to seeing who can voice the different characters.”

Tom as always being the nicest person in the world.:)

A brave little boy who suffers from one of the world’s rarest genetic conditions took to the stage in a star-studded performance expected to be watched by more than 150 million people worldwide.

Dyfan Wynne, 12, who attends St Christopher’s School in Wrexham, took on a starring role in the Royal Variety Performance at London’s Hammersmith Apollo, appearing alongside McFly star Tom Fletcher, who was reading from his new children’s book The Christmasaurus.

The Christmasauras is a story about a boy called William Trundell and a dinosaur, the Christmasauras, and how they meet one Christmas Eve and have a magical adventure.

Dyfan attends a drama group outside school and put together a video for a casting agent from London.

And out of a shortlist of four, Dyfan was chosen to star as William Trundell in the star-studded show, which will also feature performances from the legendary Barry Gibb and Sting, superstars Gary Barlow and Robbie Williams, the award-winning Sheridan Smith and Emeli Sandé, plus this years Britain’s Got Talent winner Lance Corporal Richard Jones.

Dyfan’s proud grandad, Mike Griffiths, of Llay, said it was the opportunity of a lifetime for the youngster.

The courageous youngster suffers from a genetic disorder called chromosome 8 deletion. Out of the full range of chromosomes 1-48, Dyfan is missing 11-22.

Dyfan is the only UK case and there are only four others worldwide.

Mr Griffiths said: “Dyfan was over the moon when he was asked to do it, he loves that sort of thing.

“When he was born they didn’t know whether he would walk or talk and he had two holes in his heart as well.

“You can’t keep him down – he was up and walking by the time he was 18 months old but he does need a wheelchair because he gets tired easily.

“You can’t stop him talking either. His parents have been through a lot with him but he is a little soldier and everyone who meets him absolutely loves him – he’s a character.”

Dyfan travelled down to London with his parents Dean and Helen on Saturday and has been hard at work in rehearsals ahead of the performance last night.

Helen said: “He is very excited but he’s not nervous at all. Rehearsals have gone really well and it’s a lovely performance.

“Tom Fletcher has been wonderful. He came to the hotel to rehearse to make things easier for Dyfan and he drew him a picture of the Christmasauras and signed it, along with a copy of the book.

“I will be behind the scenes watching – Dyfan has been amazing and he has done us all proud.”

The Royal Variety Performance is due to air on ITV later this month.

It has been staged since 1912 and is now watched by over 152 million TV viewers worldwide, making it the most successful and longest running entertainment show in the world.

Comedian, actor and children’s author David Walliams hosted the event in the presence of Their Royal Highnesses The Prince Of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall.

There will be blood snow.

Tom Fletcher – aka leader of all things cutesy and quaint – is doing another cute, quaint thing with his children’s book-turned-film The Christmasaurus.

The Christmasaurus is now being adapted for the stage in 2017, with Tom announcing the news on Instagram this morning (December 6).

“The Christmasaurus LIVE! Is coming to the Eventim Apollo London on Friday December 22nd 2017, featuring music, magic, me and some very special guests (to be announced),” Tom wrote. “Tickets on sale this Friday 9am!!!!!!”

Promising snow, magic, Christmas lights, a very Christmassy dinosaur, music, singing elves and “the big man himself”, Tom can be seen being adorable in his Instagram video.

Holding his ‘script’, he makes his way through festive rooms backstage before ending up on stage to find nobody in the audience because the show is actually next year.

Earlier this year, it was revealed that Tom is working on brand new music for the film adaptation of his children’s book.

It follows the festive tale of a boy named William Trundle who meets a dinosaur called The Christmasaurus on Christmas Eve and together they embark on a magical adventure.

The animated film adaptation will be helmed by Hollywood director Michael Gracey, who is currently working with the likes of Hugh Jackman and Zac Efron on The Greatest Showman On Earth.

Tom has written a number of new songs to be included in the film, which he will also perform at this year’s Royal Variety Performance.
