It’s hard to believe McFly have already released two greatest hits compilations.

They may be whippersnappers compared to the oldies we usually associate with best-of collections, but McFly don’t lack the content.

They have had seven UK No.1 singles and five Top 10 albums among their sales of more than 10 million.

The four-piece shot back into the limelight in 2011 when members Dougie and Harry won I’m A Celebrity… and Strictly Come Dancing, respectively.

Then co-frontman Tom Fletcher became a YouTube sensation earlier this year with his wedding speech. They are massive on social media with three million Twitter followers.

The band are currently playing live in front of dedicated fans who got in early buying tickets for their Memory Lane: The Best Of Tour.

They play a sold-out show at Portsmouth Guildhall tonight, before heading to the Brighton Centre on Thursday ahead of a tour finale at Wembley Arena next Saturday.

The tour is in support of their latest release Memory Lane, a collection of hits, from their early smashes Five Colours In Her Hair, Obviously and Chris Moyles’s favourite Star Girl, to chart hits such as All About You, One For The Radio and Party Girl, alongside the band’s recent and biggest-selling single Shine A Light featuring Taio Cruz.

The album also features two previously unreleased demo versions of That Girl and Obviously.

With it being their 10th anniversary year, we can expect to hear more from McFly before 2013 is out.

British pop stars McFly have celebrated their success Stateside by tattooing the acronym Ymca on their feet – one letter for each bandmember.

The Shine A Light On Her hitmakers are in a bid to break America and the reaction has been positive so far, with tickets to their gigs at The Roxy in Los Angeles and the Gramercy Theatre in New York selling out in less than a minute.

To mark the event, the foursome re-visited a tattoo parlour, where they were inked with similarly quirky designs five years ago (07), for some more bizarre body art.

Drummer Harry Judd tells British newspaper The Sun, “We got some stupid tattoos. When we came to L.A. together five years ago we all had tattoos on our feet. They said bare foot, good f-foot, athlete’s foot and big foot.

“So when we came back this time we thought it would be a good idea to get Ymca tattooed on our feet – a letter each. We walked in to the same tattoo shop just up the street and said, ‘Hi mate, can we get Ymca tattooed on our feet?’ It was the same reaction as before, ‘Are you sure?'”

Tom Fletcher’s might be going to the chapel but he’ll probably be covered in dairy products and tied to a lamp-post first

Not content with sending Tom Fletcher off to his new life as a married man with any old stag do, the McFly lads have got something a bit more creative planned for his last night as a single man.

In an interview with The Mirror Danny, Harry and Dougie let slip a few details about what they’ve got up their sleeves, saying: “It might involve midgets and lamp-posts.”

“But we can confirm there will be a bathtub, a bowling ball and eight gallons of sour cream. We just want to have a good time.”

A bowling ball? Do we even want to know what that’s all about?

Tom proposed to girlfriend Giovanna Falcone last year and with the big day set for May, he’s already starting to feel a bit jittery about the impending nuptials.

“The planning is going well but I have to write my speech on tour and I’m really nervous about it.

“I quite like that I’m the first of us to get married as the last one is going to get the worst stag do,” he said.

Even though Tom is soon to be off the market for good, it sounds like the other lads aren’t planning on taking the plunge just yet.

“Tom’s like a guinea pig – we’ll see how he gets on before we decide anything,” Danny added.

Charming.

What else do you think those pesky McFly lads have got up their sleeves for Tom?

Want to know every single little thing there is to know about McFly? Well, you’re in luck, as the boys are planning to release a tell-all biography about their journey to fame, fortune and Reality TV victory.

Dougie Poynter, Danny Jones, Tom Fletcher and Harry Judd have signed a deal with Transworld publishers to release a tome this autumn, and the book promises to give the boys’ fans a warts and all account of the band’s time in the spotlight. “[It] will include surprising tales of growing up in the limelight and the euphoric highs and desperate lows along the way,” say the publishers.

So why the delay in releasing their memoirs? One Direction are on their second book already. Singer Tom Fletcher tweeted to tell fans that the boys wanted to wait until they actually had a long enough career to have something interesting to write about,

“Massive news, after almost 9 years we are writing our first Mcfly book. Our autobiography is coming later this year…we have Lots to tell,” he said on the social networking site.

“We’ve started talking through our lives and experiences of the past 10 years. We’ve seen and done some pretty crazy stuff. For those asking why there hasn’t been a book sooner, we didn’t want to do one of those tacky books only a couple of years into our career. We wanted to wait until we really had something to say, and we are now at that stage in our career where we can tell the Real stories.”

Publishers Transworld seem equally excited about the book’s release.

“I am absolutely thrilled that Dougie, Harry, Danny and Tom have chosen to publish their book with Transworld this autumn,” says Michelle Signore, Editorial Director of Transworld. “After nearly a decade together, the time feels right for McFly to tell their story and it promises to be candid, fun – and surprising!”

As long as the book contains plenty of pictures of Harry Judd with this shirt off we’ll be happy.

Don’t know how reliable this can be, as they say they have a show tonight at wembley when they don’t..

McFly have claimed that they took their success for granted before releasing their last album.

The group’s drummer Harry Judd, who won last year’s Strictly Come Dancing, told Digital Spy that the band spent too long out of the public eye before releasing 2010’s Above The Noise, which peaked at number 20 on the album charts.

Speaking ahead of band’s live show at Wembley Stadium tonight, Judd said: “We did an album in 2010, but we had a long gap between album four and five. We’d been going for six or seven years; it took a year and a half to make it, and we didn’t do any publicity during that time.

“I think we realised how hard it was to get people interested again. I think we’d taken our success for granted. Thankfully the album went well and we had a big hit with ‘Shine A Light’, which meant we could go on tour again.”

He added: “At the same time though, other bands were coming through and it’s hard to stay relevant.”

Asked if the group, who have been together for nine years, have considered splitting up, he insisted: “No definitely not, unless there’s something they’re not telling me! I think we have something unique in the four of us.

“We’re still going strong and we’re still great mates. We hope we can still have success that allows us to release music and tour.”

Judd recently admitted that it felt “strange” leaving Strictly Come Dancing.

McFly will be performing at the Aviva Premiership Rugby clash between Saracens and Harlequins at Wembley on Saturday, March 31. Tickets are available at www.saracensatwembley.com
