[x1]PHOTOSHOOTS > 2016 > THE VOICE KIDS UK

The Voice Kids has put the finishing touches on will.i.am’s star-studded coaching panel.

With blind auditions beginning next month, the Black Eyed Peas star will be joined in the spinning chairs by McFly’s Danny Jones and pop sensation Pixie Lott.

Together, the trio will be on the lookout for talented kids between the ages of 7 and 14 to win a “life-changing grand prize”, which will be announced in the months ahead.

Pixie has three UK number-one singles to her credit, and also recently delighted West End audiences as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany.

“I can’t wait to join The Voice Kids and help discover the next big star,” Pixie said in a statement. “I have such a passion for talented young people and I know the UK will have lots – I can’t wait to hear them!

“I’m looking forward to getting started and working alongside my fellow coaches will.i.am and Danny Jones.”

Danny is fresh off his own successful McFly reunion tour, where the boys played each of their hit albums in sequence for fans across the UK.

“I’m pumped about joining The Voice Kids team,” Danny said of his new gig. “There are so many talented kids out there, they just need to be heard and this is a great platform for them.

“I’m looking forward to finding some fresh talent and coaching them. You never know, there might be a mini McFly out there!”

At the centre of this new coaching panel is will.i.am, who is making the move to ITV with The Voice following several successful series over on BBC One.

“Doing The Voice Kids with Pixie and Danny is going to be dope and I’m really excited to discover just how talented British kids can be,” the Black Eyed Peas frontman commented.

Ahead of the spinoff show, will.i.am is reuniting with Sir Tom Jones to join newcomers Jennifer Hudson and Gavin Rossdale as coaches on The Voice UK.

Emma Willis makes the jump from the BBC too when The Voice UK premieres on ITV next January.

That is actually a really good article that shares the opinion of some McFly fans, and not because I’m a huge mcfly fan too but I actually agree 100% with what they say. What do you think? Why we love McFly that much? tweet me your reasons at @poyntersource :)

McFly are an English boyband formed in 2003. It’s members include Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones, Dougie Poynter and Harry Judd. With 5 albums under their belt, countless sold out tours and a plethora of fans and followers; its clear to see that McFly are still a class act. We spoke to some of their fans asking why they loved them so much and here’s what they said:

@ifyouseebeth // Twitter: I love McFly because they genuinely care about their fans, every time I’ve met them they’ve been so lovely and tried to get round everyone. They make music because they love it and not just because its a career choice and they need the money, that’s what makes them so down to earth and likeable. Their music also has meaningful lyrics and I love just sitting and listening to the lyrics of their songs. They honestly mean everything to me!”

@LaurenAmeliia // Twitter: McFly are the most down to earth band I know, they care so much about their fans and go out to see as many people waiting to meet them as possible, as long as it’s safe. The Anthology Tour was such an amazing way to come back after McBusted. To perform all of your albums live over the space of a few nights, for thousands of fans, in intimate venues is so special and an amazing way to say thank you for all the support. Even though I couldn’t go myself, the reviews I got from fans were so positive saying that they were probably of the best set of shows they’d been to. 

 

@chxrliebaker // Twitter: “I love McFly because you can see how much they love and respect each other, especially onstage where their gigs have the best atmosphere and are filled with energy.”

@GlitzBunni // Twitter: “I grew up with them, like “just my luck” and “Dougie missing his mum.” Those memories stay with you, the smallest things bring back memories.”

@GlitterRitterMJ // Twitter: “They’re not just a band, they’re best friends and you can really see that when they perform live.”

lauuwmcfly // Tumblr: “They are amazing musicians but they are also the most genuine people ever, their bond is their strength, that’s what makes them so unique. I’ve now spent 10 years supporting them and I don’t regret it one second, some moments were great, some were hard, some were sad but at the end McFly’s here forever :’)”

themboysmcfly // Tumblr: “I love McFly because even when I’m sad or grumpy, if someone plays a McFly song I have to sing along. They always bring me up from low points in my life. I think their personalities are great too, they have such an intimacy with fans with their constant posting on social media and through videos of them being goofballs on YouTube. They’re amazing. :)”

obv10usly // Tumblr: “I love how they are genuinely great friends. They have been through so much together for all of the 13 years of being a band and they never fail to show their support to each other in whatever they choose to do in their individual life. Music wise (and in everything else actually), McFly is, has always been, and I’m sure will always be real, honest and bold. They create their own music and really have so much fun playing live. They are willing to make musical and business decisions that might seem radical at times. That takes great courage in my opinion. I could honestly talk about them all day.”

Chloe Green // Facebook: “Wow, where to start with why I love McFly. McFly are absolutely everything to me even though I may not talk about them all of the time anymore, I actually owe them everything. Listening to them and seeing them live is actually my happy place and I have nothing but good memories with them. I can’t thank them enough. McFly are just one of the bands that always put a smile on my face and I love them so much. I can’t even explain how happy it makes me knowing that theyre back and McFly again. I’m so proud to say I’ve been here since the start – since I was five years old and I have never looked back since. They are such a good laugh and just such an amazing band. I love McFly, it’s as simple as that.”

McFly are so loved and appreciated by so many people, especially all of us here at CelebMix, but do you love them? Let us know if you do and why by tweeting us @CelebMix.

[x5]PHOTOSHOOTS > 2016 > SELFISH MOTHER PHOTOSHOOT

MCFLY guitarist Tom Fletcher and his wife Giovanna welcomed their second child in February this year.

So the family of four are planning to have a “really selfish” Christmas at home this year with two-year-old toddler Buzz and his eight-month-old baby brother.

It might seem early to be thinking about Christmas arrangements, but the festive spirit is in full flow for the Fletcher family.

“We have this rule that after bonfire night, you’re allowed to listen to Christmas music,” Giovanna exclusively told OK! magazine.

She and husband Tom – who recently celebrated 13 years together – tied the knot back in 2012 in a stunning ceremony covered exclusively by OK!

And Tom is just as excited about Christmas as his wife.

“We’re really selfish and make our families come to us,” he said.

“But I don’t think the decorating work at the house will be finished by Christmas this year.”

Giovanna added: “It’s usually me who cooks but Tom has taken over in the last few years because I’ve been pregnant. I just sat there eating chocolate!”

But it’s not just family that will be invited round for Christmas, Tom’s band mates always get an invite too.

“With the kids there as well,” Tom said.

“We’ll need so many high chairs now,” he added, thinking of Harry Judd’s daughter Lola who was born earlier this year.

The couple used to live next door to Danny Jones — and one year they spent Christmas at his.

“We had this really big drunken night and the police ended up being called!” Giovanna said.

“We weren’t being that loud!”

But this year, the parents revealed their oldest son Buzz is more excited than ever for Christmas.

“Last year he wasn’t old enough to have conversations about Santa but this year he can really get into it because we’ve been talking about it loads,” Tom said.

Giovanna added: “It’s going to be so magical! We need to start thinking about the traditions we’re going to do for Buzz and Buddy.

Selfish Mother’s Molly Gunn and Tom and Giovanna Fletcher have partnered up for Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day to create a pair of festive sweaters featuring the slogans ‘Father Christmas’ and ‘Mother Christmas’ (right). The two designs are available to purchase exclusively at Selfish Mother’s online store. Priced at £45 each, 50 per cent of the proceeds (£22.50 per adult jumper) will be donated to Save the Children.

What would you guys think of Danny joining the panel of The Voice?

Looking for the next Star Girl (or Boy).​

With The Voice UK’s coaching panel now settled, all eyes are on ITV’s upcoming youth-centric spinoff.

The Voice Kids has already lined up will.i.am from the main show, and now The Mirror reports that McFly’s Danny Jones is in advanced talks for a coaching job as well.

Producers apparently see Jones as a “perfect fit” for The Voice Kids because “young contestants will really relate” to the boyband sensation, according to an insider.

A spokesperson for ITV told Digital Spy: “The panel for The Voice Kids will be confirmed in due course.”

Danny already has family history with The Voice, as his sister Vicky made it through to the Battle Rounds two years ago.

McFly are riding high right now off the success of their first reunion tour since super-group McBusted split, and are still hard at work on their follow-up to 2010’s Above the Noise.

With The Voice moving from the BBC to ITV in 2017, producers took a huge step in bringing over will.i.am from its main coaching panel to the Kids spinoff.

Before we get the companion show, will.i.am is reuniting with his old friend Sir Tom Jones to join Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson and alternative rock god Gavin Rossdale on The Voice UK.

Emma Willis is also making the jump over from the BBC when The Voice UK premieres on ITV next January.

What would you think of Dougie being the new James Bond? 😏

 
 
Posted by Sandra on October 4 2016

Not only is McFly’s Tom Fletcher ace at being a chart-topping singer-songwriter, a YouTube famous wedding speech extraordinaire and a best-selling children’s author, he’s now adding movie-maker to his many talents.

The British star is working on brand new music for the film adaptation of his own children’s book The Christmasaurus.

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.

Think of it as The Snowman meets Jurassic Park, but without the traumatic melting and nasty velociraptors.

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.

The Christmasaurus will be released as a hardback book this Thursday (October 6), ahead of the new film and music.

It follows his and bandmate Dougie Poynter’s hugely successful The Dinosaur That Pooped series, which has released over the past few years.

It also comes after McFly’s recent run of ground-breaking shows across the UK, where they played all five of their studio albums in full over three consecutive nights in each tour location.

McFly are currently working on new music for their sixth studio album, but have yet to confirm when we’ll get to hear it. Not too long please, guys!

WE went behind the scenes to meet Dougie on the set of his latest exciting project- and he looks VERY different.

He’s already mega-successful as a pop star and as one fourth of boyband McFly, but earlier this year it was rumoured Dougie was planning to carve out a Hollywood film career for himself.

The McFly bass player- who is single since splitting with girlfriend Ellie Goulding earlier this year- had reportedly been meeting with agents and producers while out in LA.

Now, we can confirm Dougie has been taking acting classes and has actually just finished filming one of his first roles- a cameo in a Brit comedy horror film called Double Date, due to be released next year.

Meeting him on the film set- a derelict mansion just outside London- Dougie looks a lot different to his usual self, with his hair slicked back and make-up applied to make him look older.

The star’s enthusiasm for his new role in the film- which also features cameo appearances from Cressida Bonas and Tom Sturridge, and stars Michael Socha (This is England, Being Human) and Georgia Groome (Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging)- is obvious.

He says: “It’s an awesome role- I’m very excited to shoot. I play a guy called Stephen, and I pick up two girls from a bar, and I think I’ve hit the jackpot- but I was wrong, so wrong!

“I get to get killed by two hot chicks! I love that. I’ve always wanted to be killed. The script was awesome, and hilarious.”

It’s not the first time he’s appeared in a film. In 2006 he starred along with the rest of McFly in Just My Luck, starring Chris Pine and Lindsay Lohan- playing himself.

He says: “I was a kid. We were playing ourselves so we were just messing around. It was just good fun. Now it’s very different. You look at everything completely differently when you’re older.

“I’ve been studying mainly at Alder (Stella Adler Studio of Acting), both here and the States. I’m curious about everything- this is a challenge and makes me research things I wouldn’t usually know about.”

While Dougie’s keen to pursue acting, he’d never rule out appearing on reality TV again, having won I’m a Celeb in 2011.

He says: “I’d never say never, but I’ve done it now. I couldn’t do Strictly- I can barely stand up and talk at the same time!”

The 28 year old was signed by Kate Moss’ modelling agency Storm back in 2014 and was also recently spotted on the runway for Joshua Kane.

This morning we were invited to the launch of Tom Fletcher’s newest book, and first novel, ‘The Christmasaurus’, and we have to admit that we weren’t quite prepared for what followed – which genuinely included cameo appearances from Hollywood actors Hugh Jackman and Zac Efron.
After talking us through the synopsis of his heartfelt book, which is released on Thursday, the McFly frontman dropped a rather huge clanger by announcing that it was already being turned into an animated, musical film with bigshot director, Michael Gracey, and they even had the concept art to show us and a couple of songs to perform.

Ahh.
Unfortunately, Michael Gracey was busy in New York filming his latest movie, but he did send a video message about his involvement with the film, which was promptly interrupted by actors Hugh and Zac, who gatecrashed the video to reinforce just how bloomin’ good ‘The Christmasaurus’ is.
Confirming that he had heard a couple of the songs already, X-Men star, Hugh Jackman, said to the camera: “The songs are great, I’ve heard them.

“They’re very catchy.”
Speaking exclusively to Tom after the launch, we asked how it felt to have such a huge Hollywood seal of approval, and the star told us: “I couldn’t believe that, it’s so cool.
“Michael was meant to be here today but everything has gone rapidly for him so he couldn’t be, but it’s okay… If you have to be somewhere else than filming with Hugh Jackman and Zac Efron is a good excuse.

“He’s an incredible director, so we are really lucky to have him on board.”
Tom went on to add that he always thought that ‘The Christmasaurus’ would make a great film but he hoped to maintain some creative control by writing the book first.
He explained: “I love writing, so my natural place to go is to a book because I am in charge of it. Making a film requires many more people on board, so when I have ideas for stories – even though I can see them as a film – I tend to write them as a book first because you get your vision into it.
“If you have a real passion for it you feel like it’s your baby, it’s really difficult letting it go.”

And Tom was also keen to reassure his fans that dipping his feet into the movie industry didn’t mean that it was the end of McFly, in fact, they’re going to be around for a long ol’ time yet.
After joking that his bandmates were going to play elves in the film, Tom shared: “For us, it feels like McFly is forever. It is the constant.
“We have all of these other projects but McFly is the one thing that we will never go away – in a good way! It’s always there for us and it’s always where our hearts lay.
“It’s nice now there’s no pressure for us to write an album every year; we can do it when it feels right for us. Because of McBusted it had been a long time since we did anything just the four of us and I think that people kind of get it now that we’ll always be around.

“On tour we had people coming who had been there from day one and kind of grown up with us, and they’re bringing their kids along… And then there are 13 year olds screaming and crying like it used to be, and it’s so weird because when did they discover McFly?
“They were born in the year when ‘5 Colours In Her Hair’ came out, that’s so weird – how did they discover us? It’s exciting for us as a band.”
And we have to admit that we are excited to see what Tom, and the rest of McFly, do next – because judging by ‘The Christmasaurus’ it’s going to be amazing.

‘The Christmasaurus’ is available to buy from Thursday 6th October!

As we sat on the stationary train outside Smethwick, I tried to calm my 16-year-old daughter down, reassuring her that Mcfly would surely wait to start the gig at O2 Academy until we arrived – as if!

Eventually in Brum, after dashing through the city streets, we were more than relieved to join the thousands queuing outside the venue. I’d not seen anything like it in ages. The reformed boy/man band had proven to be something of a bigger draw than perhaps even they had anticipated. Eventually we were in.

I was pleased – actually relieved – to see that the capacity audience wasn’t going to be purely screaming girls and one disheveled dad. Far from it. Many balding chaperones had been dragged along.

But hey, who am I kidding. I genuinely enjoyed myself. The cheeky Mcfly boys are actually pretty good musicians, as highlighted from the off with a crowd-pleasing rendition of their first big hit, Five Colours in Her Hair. Rachel, my daughter, was ecstatic – screaming like a crazed Beatles fan from back in the day.

Night one of the boys’ three-night residency showcased there early material, with subsequent evenings featuring different setlists. Many of the hyped up audience will doubtlessly be at all three shows.

The evening was lapped up enthusiastically by an adoring crowd, singing the lyrics of hits Obviously, Room on the Third Floor and assorted album tracks at the top of its collective voice.

For an encoure, the lads returned to the stage with more recent material, including Love is on the Radio and Love is Easy.

Unlike the last time we saw Dougie, Harry, Tom and Danny – then as super-group McBusted – this was a stripped-down show. Simple backdrop, no frills. The music and banter stealing the night.

Great job guys. Rachel was impressed, as was her rather cynical father. And if you can win me over, you’ll be around for a long time to come.
