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!

Tom talked about the soon to be brother or sister of Buzz during his appearance at the CopaFeel Celebrity Boob Ball.

[x21]EVENTS AND APPEARANCES > 2016 > COPAFEEL CELEBRITY BOOB BALL, LONDON – FEBRUARY 1

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.”
