Harry Judd, Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones and Dougie Poynter talk weddings, Valentine’s Day and bust-ups in the band…

When new! arrives at Universal Records for our chat with McFly, we are warned that Tom Fletcher, Dougie Poynter and Harry Judd are in a “boisterous” mood.

And sure enough, when we enter the lads’ dressing room, they’ve disappeared, forcing their PR to round them up in the canteen.
Singer and guitarist Tom, 27, is first to return, shortly followed by bassist Dougie, 25.
Harry, 27, joins us a little later, apologising profusely, “I just got told during lunch that our break isn’t actually until later. I’m so sorry!”
Unfortunately, fourth band member Danny Jones, 26, isn’t able to join us, but the other three boys make up for his absence with plenty of jokes and banter.
And with the most romantic day of the year just around the corner, we have a lot of ground to cover.
Tom and Harry recently married their long-term sweethearts, 28-year-old Giovanna Falcone (sister of TOWIE star Mario) and former Escala violinist Izzy Johnston, also 28.
Tom caused an internet sensation when he posted a video clip of his wedding speech song on YouTube – just a day before Harry’s wedding pictures were published.
Talk about stealing his mate’s thunder!
Meanwhile, Danny is dating former Miss England Georgia Horsley and Dougie is happily loved-up with girlfriend Lara Carew-Jones, who he met through bandmate Harry.
The former I’m A Celebrity winner has been open about his struggle to get over his 2010 split from The Saturdays’ Frankie Sandford, 24, admitting in McFly’s book Unsaid Things… Our Story that he attempted to end his life before being treated for depression at The Priory.
It’s great to see Dougie back on track and his bandmates reckon he could even be the next to walk down the aisle.
Here, the boys tell us about their wonderful weddings, Valentine’s Day mishaps and touring with wives and girlfriends in tow…
Tom, it’s your first Valentine’s Day as a married man. What are your plans?
It is! I think Gi has arranged a lunch with her friends and I haven’t been invited to that one [laughs].
I haven’t got any plans yet, but I might make a nice dinner.
Harry, you also got hitched recently. What about you?
[Laughs] No, we’ve sealed the deal now. The contract’s been signed; romance is dead.
Do you flash the cash on Valentine’s Day?
Harry: No, it’s all about the thought. I still remember my first Valentine’s Day with Izzy – she cooked me a meal and laid out a heart on the table. I wet-shaved for the occasion, but then I broke out in loads of little spots.
I was trying to be a traditional gentleman, but it backfired. It was the last wet shave ever.
Dougie: They were heart-shaped spots though!

  1. McFly guitarist Dougie Poynter opens up about his ‘darker days’ to Mark Wright on I’m A Celebrity

    Dougie Poynter has vowed never to touch alcohol again after successfully completing a stint in rehab earlier this year.

    The I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! contestant told TOWIE’s Mark Wright that he loved drinking ‘just a bit too much’ and felt like an ’empty shell’ before he was admitted for treatment.

    ‘I was just constantly bummed out,’ Dougie, 24, admitted on last night’s show.

    ‘For like years of my life, if I really think about it.

    I loved isolating – just being by myself and getting battered.’

    And Dougie admits that his problems got worse when he split with Saturdays singer Frankie Sandford, 22, after dating on and off for 2 years.

    ‘That’s when it escalated even more,’ he tells Mark, 24.

    ‘I wasn’t really comfortable in my own skin any more.

    ‘So I went and saw this bloke and he sent me to rehab.

    ‘It was hard…it was really hard…but it was one of the best things I ever did.’
