BRIT award winning pop band McFly have been enjoying a stay on Anglesey where they have come to write and record new material.

Three members of the chart-topping band are believed to be staying in Rhoscolyn seem impressed with their new surroundings.

Singer Tom Fletcher has been using Twitter to document their stay and enthuse about the band’s Anglesey writing retreat.

Tom posted a picture of an ANglesey beach and twitted: “Possibly just witnessed the best sunset of my life.”

The band seem equally impressed with the progress of their song-writing, which is going ahead in the absence of drummer Harry Judd who is fulfilling other Strictly Come Dancing commitments

Tom said: “Just going to bed after writing an absolute smash of a song. Sounds so awesome!”

The band have reportedly been spotted by fans in Tesco Holyhead over the week.

Sam Jones, of Bangor, said: “A bunch of people I know have just seen McFly in Holyhead Tesco.” said Bangor man Sam Jones.

McFly have enjoyed a boost in publicity and interest recently as bassist Dougie Poynter was crowned King of the Jungle in the latest series of ITV’s I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here and bandmate Harry Judd was crowned winner of last year’s ‘Strictly Come Dancing’.

McFly are not the only chart-toppers to visit the island recently as X Factor group One Direction were reported to be in the area last year, shooting footage for a video in Trearddur Bay and Rhosneigr.

This doesn’t mean that you now go and stalk them. It’s sad that the media post they location I have to say it,but as it’s everywhere I’ll post the article on the site.

MEMBERS of one of the UK’s most popular bands used Anglesey’s coastline as inspiration for their new material.

Three of pop-rock band McFly reportedly stayed in Rhoscolyn over the weekend to begin writing new songs for their next album. They have enjoyed chart hits with songs such as It’s All About You and Obviously.

Dougie Poynter, Tom Fletcher and Danny Jones were spotted in Tesco Holyhead by several lucky shoppers on Friday afternoon.

The group kept fans up to date by posting photos and comments on Twitter throughout their trip.

This is not the first time a successful UK band has taken advantage of the island’s shoreline recently: in November, boyband One Direction visited Trearddur Bay, Rhosneigr and Aberffraw to film footage which would be used during their concerts.

Over the weekend, lead singer Tom posted that the writing process was “going well”, stating: “Up til 4am working on songs. Late nights, late starts. We’re on the creative time zone.

“I love my job. It’s 1am, we’re making awesome music whilst eating double stuffed Oreos dunked in Galaxy milkshake.”

However, drummer Harry Judd was unable to join his bandmates as he had other commitments.

Harry, who was recently crowned Strictly Come Dancing Champion 2011, spoke of his bandmates’ Anglesey trip during a television appearance over the weekend.

Appearing on BBC magazine show, Something for the Weekend on Sunday, he said: “The other three are away at the moment in Wales doing a little writing trip, but because I’ve got Strictly tour rehearsals tomorrow, I couldn’t join them.”

He said the other three were “writing some new stuff” and agreed the band was stronger than ever following a break, which saw himself and his fellow bandmate winning two popular reality TV shows: Dougie was named King of the Jungle in ITV1’s I’m a Celebrity.
