Dedicated fans of boy band McFly camped outside the Corn Exchange for two days waiting for the objects of their desire.

Helene Clement, 26, and Julie Soyer, 21, travelled all the way from London to pitch their tents outside the venue in Cambridge on Sunday – but they weren’t the first to arrive.

A tent filled with Spanish women had beaten them to it and were already in prime position on the steps of the concert hall to make sure they would be at the front of the stage when the pop group, named after the character Marty McFly from the 1985 movie Back to the Future, perform tonight (april 10).

But the group, who braved chilly temperatures, were soon joined by around ten eager girls – ready to scream, shout and dance the night away to the sounds of Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones, Dougie Poynter and Harry Judd.

Sisters Jade, 18, and Bryony Clark, 16, from Fulbourn, were so keen to see their favourite group they arrived at 9am today with a duvet and food supplies delivered to them by their mum throughout the day.

Julie Soyer, a language assistant from France currently working at a school in Hampshire, told the News: “I have seen them about 25 times.

“We made sure were early because at bigger venues you usually get about 50 people camped before you- but here we were one of the first.

“The staff at the venue have been really friendly and let us camp here – I think they understand our dedication.”

Cambridge News has posted a little article about our beloved guys

One won I’m A Celebrity. . .Get Me Out Of Here, one won Strictly Come Dancing, and another had a crack at Popstar to Operastar; but now the four boys are back together in their original form as they tour the country with their Above the Noise show.
Above the Noise is McFly’s fifth studio album and spawned their biggest hit to date, Shine A Light, which has sold over 300,000 copies in the UK.
Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones, Dougie Poynter and Harry Judd released their first single in 2004, the jaunty 5 Colours In Her Hair, which launched the band as the poppy-surfy alternative to Busted’s skater-pop-rock.
(Tom had actually auditioned for a place in Busted, losing out to Charlie Simpson, but continued to write for them until being offered a place in a new band, which became McFly.)
McFly toured with Busted before their split, going on to reel off a number of similarly catchy hits from their first album, Room on the 3rd Floor, including Obviously and That Girl, as well as four more successful albums.
Still only in their 20s, McFly became the youngest band to get to number 1 with their debut album – a title formerly held by The Beatles.
McFly, Cambridge Corn Exchange, April 10 at 7.30pm. Sold out.
