You can see the video of the boys training HERE

IT’S ALL FUN AND GAMES UNTIL TOM FLETCHER DISLOCATES HIS SHOULDER

They’ve already conquered the world of music, dabbled in the lycra-clad world of ballroom dancing and been crowned jungle royalty, but that’s all like, so 75 seconds ago. Now McFly have set their sights on the world of sport and kicked things off with a spot of Rugby.

OK, so we might be slightly exaggerating. They’re probably not aiming for the next 6 Nations, but the lads went off on a rugby jolly earlier this week, taking on the mighty Saracens squad.

We may have been somewhat surprised to see the boys on the pitch, but we are never ones to be prejudiced, particularly when it means seeing one of our favourite boybands getting physical in skimpy shorts.

It wasn’t all fun and games though. Engaging in a little ‘light training’ the boys tossed balls with the hefty players and then decided to try out some tackles. Although Harry showed off his agility, nipping out of harms way, Tom wasn’t so lucky.

Colliding with the 16st Jason Wray is what we can only liken to running face first into a brick wall. The 6ft 2 England International sent Tom flying, and he ended up a little bit worse for wear.

Taking to Twitter the next day, Tom said: “One of the rugby guys f£&@*d my shoulder yesterday. Can’t play guitar today! It even hurts when I tweet!”

Ouch.

He may be having difficulty lifting his guitar, but Tom managed to reassure us all that he’s all OK, tweeting: “Physio says: partial disclocation. Got some exercises to do over the next 48hrs although I’d say taking my t-shirt off was enough exercise!”

We’d have to agree, but we’d prefer any t-shirt taking off to happen in our presence please Tom.

If you want to see the boys with their legs out, have a look at the video. (Don’t worry they didn’t film Tom writhing around in pain or anything).

Maybe don’t give up the day job guys, although if you want to wear shorts more often, we’d be very happy with your decision.

What do you think of that? Who’s your favourite member of McFly?

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.”

We spoke to the gorgeous McFly boys about their half time show at Saracens v Harlequins, celebrity crushes and naked bottoms! Oohhh!

They famously sang about a girl with five colours in her hair, but eight years on McFly’s Harry Judd reveals that it is now “diva” bass guitarist Dougie Poynter who makes the most fuss over his barnet.
“Dougie’s got the longest hair, so his takes the longest to put into shape. But often he doesn’t bother and just wears a headband,” Harry revealed.

“I would say Danny or Dougie are the biggest divas!”

Currently in the middle of touring the country, the boys are also rehearsing for a half time performance during the Saracens v Harlequins rugby match in March.

“We’re performing two songs before kick-off and then one at half time, so I’m really looking forward to it.

“I can’t quite claim that we will be putting on a show like Madonna did at the Super Bowl but we’ll be doing our very best.”
2011 was a successful year for the McFly boys, with drummer Harry winning Strictly Come Dancing and bass guitarist Dougie being crowned the King of the Jungle in I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!

But scaling new heights of fame isn’t always an advantage for the boys:

“I read the other day that I threw a strop and demanded that I have a TV in my bedroom so that I could watch David Beckham on Jonathan Ross,” Harry told us.

“The fact is; every hotel room has a TV in it, so why would I have to demand a TV? [laughs]

“I think what happened was, I remember saying after a Strictly show that I was missing Match of the Day and Beckham on Jonathan Ross

as well, and what a shame it was. The next day, people were saying I had thrown a strop and demanded a TV in my room so I could watch Beckham – my man crush – on TV apparently.

“Often you read funny things!”
But when they’re not touring, rehearsing, or winning various reality TV shows, the boys lark about playing pranks on each other… and us:
“I can reveal a secret about one of the band…” Harry laughed.

“…Danny! I haven’t seen him in three weeks and he just walked in the room and pulled his pants down on me! That’s often how he greets me! That’s a sight I get to see quite a lot.”
While speaking to Dougie, the mischievous bass player told us, “On Danny’s personal rider, he has eight gallons of cocoa butter and seven gallons of KY Jelly.”

“… and I’ll be wearing no pants on stage when we perform,” the bassist continued.
Don’t get too excited ladies, though: the King of the Jungle revealed to us he was no longer a tanned God admitting, “After coming out of the jungle I lost all my tan – not that I really had one to begin with!”

Continuing the theme of nakedness (we weren’t complaining), Dougie added, “There was a picture in Heat magazine once, where it sort of went unnoticed that my scrotum was hanging out in the picture.

“They printed it and nobody noticed. I didn’t notice! It was the next week when someone told me…”
“I was dressed like a woman as well,” he added.

“Why was I dressed as a woman? Well, it was a Thursday night, of course.”

Talking about their new found fame, Harry and Dougie agreed that despite both winning huge TV shows last year, their status as popstars has very much remained the same:
“In the band, Danny and Tom have always been the front men but we’re all equal so I don’t really think about celebrity status,” Harry told us.

We broached one final question with the McFly boys; who is their celebrity crush?
“Natalie Portman is my celebrity crush,” Harry said.

“I watched her in Black Swan; I try to watch her in everything. I’m quite a big fan.

“I think I’d try and avoid meeting her actually. I would be star struck. I don’t think I’d be able to cope. I wouldn’t know what to do.”
Dougie agreed, “Yeah, Natalie Portman is my celebrity crush. We like her!

“I think I’d remember if I’d met her… I don’t think I have.”
We can’t wait to see the performance boys! I wonder if Dougie will actually be wearing any underwear…. ?
