McFly band member Tom Fletcher launched his children’s fiction book The Christmasaurus at the Natural History Museum on 5 October.

The venue’s Earth Hall was transformed for the occasion into a Christmas wonderland, with season lighting, canapés and a giant ‘Christmasaurus’ made from 2,500 Warburton’s crumpets.

The Christmas scene was constructed by Bespoke Events, who matched the lighting to the book’s jacket using blues, whites and purples as well as snowflake projections.

Food by Dish created a bespoke canapé menu including confit turkey leg ballotine with blackberry, Goat’s cheese and beetroot trifle with gingerbread, Quails eggs Florentine with pink peppercorns and homemade miniature mince pies.

Lauren Hyett,head of PR for Penguin Random House Children’s, commented: “Where better to celebrate the launch of a book about a very special dinosaur than at the Natural History Museum? Tom Fletcher and Penguin Random House wanted to throw the first Christmas party of the season to celebrate The Christmasaurus in festive style.”

Calling all crumpet fans – time to get yourself to Manchester or Bristol where you can marvel over an eight-foot dinosaur made out of Warburton’s giant crumpets.
Yes, you read that correct, and it’s all thanks to McFly’s Tom Fletcher, whose new book The Christmasaurus features mischievous Elves who enjoy nothing more than a toasted crumpet at teatime.

Well, who doesn’t?
‘The Christmasaurus really is such an entertaining read so is a natural fit for our family brand,’ said Sally Stanton, Head of Marketing at Warburtons.

After hearing that Tom Fletcher’s Elves loved crumpets just as much as we do, we figured it was a fantastic opportunity to join forces and create the Christmasaurus out of crumpets.’

The Christmasaurus is Tom’s latest children’s book.
Set on Christmas Eve, the story follows the adventures of a boy named William Trundle and a most unusual dinosaur called, you guessed it, the Christmasaurus. A tale about adventure, family, friendship and discovering that the impossible might just be possible, it follows Tom’s earlier series, The Dinosaur That Pooped.
Tom confirmed on Tuesday that the new novel will be turned into a film, and will be directed by Michael Gracey, who is currently working with Hugh Jackman and Zac Efron on a new film, The Greatest Showman.

‘I’d only finished the first draft of the book when I sent it to the director and he literally came back in the first email with illustrations and I thought it was amazing,’ Tom told Daily Star.
‘He was so inspired and fired up that we had this plan to make the film as I still was shaping the story of the book.I’ve never grown out of Christmas. I am now this weird 31-year-old who still loves Christmas and dinosaurs.’

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!

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!

The McFly frontman is expecting a sibling for son Buzz very soon

The McFly frontman and his author wife Giovanna are set to become parents once again at the end of the month.

Speaking exclusively to OK! Online at Coppafeel’s Celebrity Dodge Ball tournament, he admitted that the baby could arrive at any moment. “We’re prepared, I think,” he said.

He added that two year old son Buzz is also looking forward to becoming a big brother. “He’s kind of aware,” he said.

“I don’t know if he’s aware of quite how much it’s going to change his life though, a new brother of sister. But he does know there’s a baby coming.”

The singer also admitted he hasn’t yet met bandmate Harry Judd’s new baby Lola.

“I haven’t met her yet, I’ve been poorly so I’ve been staying well away,” he said. “They’re getting on very well, I’m very excited to meet her.”

With a wife and a sister both ambassadors (or boob ninjas) for Coppafeel, the 30 year old revealed why he thinks the breast cancer charity is so important.

“It’s an amazing message and one that’s so simple. To pass that message on to people, woman and guys to check themselves and know their own bodies, it’s important.”

He added: “You need to know your own body and know if there is anything different going on. Just familiarising yourself.”
