Group were handed the Favourite UK Band of the Decade gong by the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles…
McFly are to be the first-ever group to receive an honorary accolade at the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards for Favourite UK Band of the Decade.
In a surprise visit during rehearsals for the McBusted tour, Tom Fletcher, Dougie Poynter and Harry Judd were awarded the iconic orange blimp by their childhood heroes, Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Busted’s Matt Willis and James Bourne.
The inaugural award was created especially for the band, who was the UK host of the award show in 1997. It recognises the band’s outstanding ten years in the music industry entertaining a generation of kids.
“Back in 2007 we were the UK hosts of Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards handing out the blimps rather than receiving them,” said McFly’s Tom.
“McFly’s ten years have been insanely awesome and having the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles award us Favourite Band of the Decade has to be one of the highlights. Cowabunga dudes!”
