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.”

“That’s a longer journey​ than the stag​e version…”​

McFly’s Tom Fletcher must be the busiest man in pop, as he’s just disclosed that his children’s novel The Christmasaurus is being adapted into an animated movie.

Fresh off his revelation that the book will also be adapted for the stage next year, the singer told Digital Spy: “There’s an animated feature film of The Christmasaurus in the works – that’s a longer journey, as animation takes a while.

“So it’s all happening. I’m not sure if I’ll do the singing or the voices for the film yet… It depends, I’m sure there would be better people than me. I’m going to be on the stage with it next year though.”

Tom will be performing songs from the book at the 2016 Royal Variety Performance tonight (set to be aired on ITV next week), and explained how the whole process came about.

“I’d been writing children’s picture books with my bandmate Dougie [Poynter] for five years so it was a natural progression from that to writing a novel,” he continued. “I wrote a song called ‘Christmasaurus’, and that was the catalyst for the whole book.

“Everyone reacted to it really well and that got me excited and before I knew it, I’d written the novel. I had the story and a bunch of songs and I felt that I had essentially a musical. And tonight the performance [for the Royal Variety] is a snippet of The Christmasaurus Live, which is a show we’re putting on live next year in 2017.

“So I’m singing the songs tonight for the first time.”

He also added that he’ll be back in the studio writing music with McFly for their sixth studio album this year, saying that it’s been a “long time coming”.

The 2016 Royal Variety Performance is hosted by David Walliams and features performances from Tom, Lady Gaga and BGT winner Richard Jones.

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.

The Guardian published a review of the best books for kids this christmas and Tom’s The Christmasaurus is one of them! read below what they have to say about the book.

Most kids want at least one unattainable thing for Christmas – a pony, a spaceship, a real live dinosaur. That’s the simple but effective premise of The Christmasaurus (Penguin hardback £12.99), the latest book from erstwhile McFly singer Tom Fletcher, whose dino-themed picture-book output (with bandmate Dougie Poynter) probably helped earn his icelolly.com celebrity dad of the year 2016 accolade.

For a man more used to the three-minute medium, Fletcher’s not bad. The story of Jurassic-fixated William Trundle (wheelchair-using, mumless) and a dinosaur raised at the north pole (who secretly wants to be a reindeer), Fletcher’s first solo venture for older children is full of redemption, magic and gleeful silliness, especially on the mechanics of Christmas.

Elves called Snozzletrump and the like speak in rhyme. Santa plays vinyl records on his in-sleigh gramophone; that’s the boost that sends it airborne. The tale draws to a climax on Trundle’s snowy rooftop, where a big game hunter tries to bag a flying reindeer as his latest rare trophy – or, perhaps, even a dinosaur?

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.
