WITH the Olympics being shown live on the big screens at Hyde Park, Team GB must be a tough act to follow for the bands.

Especially when Olympic heroes like Bradley Wiggins are interviewed on stage minutes before your show.

But McFly are old pros and they knew their job was simply to entertain the families in between our next gold medal triumph.

They threw in covers of Queen’s Don’t Stop Me Now and The Beatles’ Twist And Shout for the mums and dads, while their own tunes saw parents flinging their toddlers around to keep the nation’s celebratory mood going nicely.

From the moment they arrived on to Chariots Of Fire with Harry Judd carrying an Olympic torch, the lads knew not to take themselves seriously

The frequent McFlyers reserved their biggest screams for Five Colours In Her Hair and, with album six ready to go, it looks like there’s plenty of life for the gents in between winning reality TV shows.

Like so many of our Olympians, McFly are at their best when they’re written off.

Great stuff, even if it couldn’t match up to our heroics on the track.
