Nothing like a bit of playful banter!
One Direction fans are usually the ones accused of sending harsh messages across social networking sites but supergroup McBusted have admitted that they’re the ones who have actually been “sending abuse” to poor Niall Horan.
The pop supergroup will be joining One Direction at the Paris show on their upcoming ‘Where We Are’ tour which kicks off on Friday and it seems the lad banter has already begun with the boys taunting each other ahead of the concert.
Harry Judd told The Mirror: “We’ve been Snapchatting Niall. We send abuse and he sends it back.” We’d love to see those messages!
On a slightly more serious note, Busted star James Bourne went on to reveal that he’s hoping the 1D boys can give McBusted some tips on how to take the world by storm even though the young boy band are still in awe at working with their idol bands, who joined to form one huge group last year.
We caught up with them the day after the tour kicked off in Glasgow – and it was all a far cry from the hedonism that put Matt Willis into rehab.
The six-piece – Busted’s Charlie Simpson is not taking part amid reports he received a six-figure payout for rights to the band’s name – will play 34 dates nationwide, including headlining Hyde Park in July.

The McFly and Busted boys pleased an extremely excited crowd at Glasgow’s SSE Arena – it’s clear to see how they sold out all their gigs so easily
McFly’s obsession with Back to The Future is obvious by their name, but rest assured – their new bandmates Busted share the same fetish for the ’80s cult film too.

“It’s here!!” Tweeted McBusted. “First day of the tour kicks off in Glasgow tonight…totally psyched, looking forward to seeing you all.”
Tom Fletcher also posted his excitement about the forthcoming gig, writing “Tonight is gonna be mega. If ever there’s a time to use the word “mega” it is definitely when describing the events about to unfold tonight.”
While the boys announced that they will be making an album together much of the music their will perform will be from the bands’ separate careers.

Writing on her Hello! blog, the new mum said: “We were out for dinner with all the McBusted family (celebrating Danny’s birthday) when my waters broke – so I’m pretty certain Buzz just wanted to be part of the fun”.
“I can’t tell you how giddy we all were when we left our friends in the restaurant knowing that the next time we’d see them we’d have a child”, she wrote.
Despite the chaotic way she went into labour, Gi explained that her ‘wonderful husband’ was the best birthing partner she could’ve asked for.
McFly and Busted stars had no idea how big their supergroup would become
When Busted and McFly decided to play some dates together, they had no idea how popular their supergroup would be.
McBusted, as they jokingly called themselves, were created for a brief reunion at the Royal Albert Hall on McFly’s tenth anniversary concert.
It was so popular they decided to recreate it and go out on the road as a six-piece. Much to their surprise, they sold out every ticket on the tour. They added more. They sold out. They added more. The same thing happened again.
It was Back to the Future for McBusted as they filmed a new promotional video in tribute to the film.
The supergroup, formed when McFly and Busted joined forces earlier this year, may have been inspired by their namesake, the film’s hero Marty McFly.
The band – Tom Fletcher, Dougie Poynter, Danny Jones from McFly, and James Bourne and Matt Willis from Busted – were seen shooting the video in London with a DeLorean similar to the automobile time-machine in the 1980s film.

“We were thinking of going in the studio and properly laying something down before the tour started,” Judd told Capital FM at Attitude’s 20th birthday.
“We’ve had no time because of Tom having his baby, the tour rehearsals and Matt’s filming bits on ‘Eastenders’. Everyone has been so busy.
