IT’S a day pop fans never thought they would see.
Love them or loathe them, the unveiling of supergroup McBusted has taken the music world by storm.
Since first announcing their joint tour last year, the two Busted and four McFly boys have been forced to extend their run to a 35-date arena tour – including headlining the British Summer Time Festival at Hyde Park on July 6.
In January the boys added another huge show to the tour at Ipswich Chantry Park on Sunday June 29.
In an exclusive interview with Mercury reporter Laura Burnip, they said they could not believe the frenzy which has met McBusted.
TWO businessmen are teaming up and asking people to donate football shirts to give to some of Brazil’s poorest youngsters.
Alan Jones — father of McFly singer Danny Jones — is running the scheme at his pub, The Jolly Crofters in Horwich.
He has joined forces with Dean Cocozza, who runs a barber shop in Bolton town centre, and so far the two have amassed more than 140 shirts.
The collection will end on April 15, when the tops will be sent to young people living in poverty in Brazilian slums, known locally as favelas.

McBusted joined forces with Sport Relief for a challenge which involved racing vintage bicycles.
The supergroup – consisting of McFly and Busted – donned various period costumes for the task, which each member selecting a different bike, ranging from the 1800s to the 1990s.
They then competed in a race in a bid to encourage people to sign up for this year’s Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Cycle.
MCBUSTED, the pop-rock supergroup made up of McFly and members of Busted, last week announced a huge outdoor summer live show for Weston Beach.
It’s been a whirlwind start to the year for the über-band, of McFly’s Tom Fletcher, Harry Judd, Danny Jones and Dougie Poynter, plus Busted two-thirds James Bourne and Matt Willis.
When James and Matt joined the boys on stage for their 10th anniversary Royal Albert Hall shows as ‘McBusted’ in 2013, it “just felt right”.
With 15 million combined record sales, 14 number 1s, and three Brit Awards, the six have a 35-date arena tour in store, including O2 sell-outs and a Hyde Park date – and more expected.
Really can’t decide who we fancy more out of these two
As if McFly didn’t already make you swoon your socks off every time they step out of the house, Danny Jones and lovely fiancée Georgia Horsley have gone and taken the biscuit this week with the world’s cutest photoshoot to celebrate their engagement.
JUST LOOK AT THEM.
Taking to the cover of Hello! Mag to celebrate their upcoming nuptials, Danny and Georgia headed off into the country to have a pose and a bit of a chat about their plans for married life. If all the perfect smiles and fancy mansion houses are what they’re having to celebrate the engagement, we can’t begin imagine what the weding pics are gonna be like, but either way it’s all very lovely.
That said, clearly the sheer awesomeness of bandmates Tom Fletcher’s speech and Harry Judd’s fancy dance routine at their respective weddings have got Danny dithering about over his.
DJ Fresh has revealed he has been working with McFly’s Danny Jones on his solo music venture.
The producer revealed his commercial success had led to him meeting a lot of boy bands at music events, and he has befriended Danny, who also works as a DJ.
DJ Fresh told Metro: “I get on with Danny from McFly. He’s making some house music at the moment and is really talented. I’ve been in the studio with him. But I generally keep myself to myself.”
But he admitted he found it “exciting and suprising” to perform alongside pop acts since becoming more mainstream.
He revealed: “I’ve found myself playing at massive events with boy bands such as JLS and One Direction. It’s funny to be put in that world – it says a lot about the role dance music is playing in British music.”
Vicky Jones has revealed that she’s already landed herself a rather high profile gig, whether or not she makes it past The Voice battle rounds this year.
The singer was featured on the BBC show last weekend and won herself a place on Team Tom Jones after her blind audition for the coaches.
Both Kylie Minogue and Tom were fighting over the sister of McFly singer Danny Jones and in an interview with new! magazine she revealed that her brother gave some good advice before her tryout.
McFly star Danny Jones and his fiancée Georgia Horsley have spoken exclusively to HELLO! about their engagement and wedding plans.
Danny’s McFly bandmates Tom Fletcher, Harry Judd and Dougie Poynter will be among his six best men on his wedding day.
“We’re like brothers,” he said of his bandmates. “Our backgrounds are so different but we all get on amazingly well. We have a connection on another level to everything else.”
The couple got engaged on holiday in Cyprus last July, and denied rumours that Danny had popped the question previously. “This is definitely the one and only proposal,” said Danny.

iewers of The Voice were treated to incredible performances by Adele’s distant cousin Georgia Harrup and McFly star Danny Jones’ sister Vicky Jones, in Saturday night’s episode.
Both singing hopefuls impressed the panel of four coaches – Sir Tom Jones, Kylie Minogue, Ricky Wilson and will.i.am – but it was Team Tom that they opted to go for. [...]
Danny’s sister Vicky, meanwhile, also made a point of proving how much she deserved a spot in the competition. The red-haired singer spoke about her McFly star brother just before delivering a powerful take on Bon Jovi’s Bed of Rose.
