Chart toppers McFly were given a day to remember at Old Albanians this week when the band members tackled Saracens in a singing, eating and rugby contest.

King of the Jungle Dougie Poynter and Strictly Come Dancing winner Harry Judd, along with fellow band members Tom Fletcher and Danny Jones, were given a special welcome as they performed their hit song It’s All About You with the squad and took part in training…but the highlight of the day was definitely the eating challenge between Dougie and Schalk Brits.

Having been used to eating a variety of different disgusting dishes in I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here, Dougie tackled the challenge head on, but hooker Brits was a little more hesitant when the dishes of pigs ears, pig snout and sheep penis were served.

“I have literally just found a hair stuck in the back of my teeth and that was un-expected,” said Dougie minutes after the challenge. “Some of the food was very, very, similar to the jungle and it bought back some horrible memories, but at least I didn’t have to eat anything that was alive… that’s bad!”

Look out for the eating challenge in full on Sarries TV in the coming days.

The band will perform at Wembley Stadium on Saturday 31st March as part of the entertainment for the Saracens v Harlequins Aviva Premiership match at the stadium.

“We are really looking forward to playing at Wembley and we will be supporting Saracens,” said Danny. “We had an awesome day. The Sarries boys were a really good bunch of lads and are quite scary when running at you at about 30 mph. I think if we had tried to tackle one of them we could have really hurt ourselves.”
