WE can always rely on The Wanted to get us excited on a gloomy afternoon.
And after their rap extravaganza earlier this week, we bet you guys thought their visit to MarkMeets HQ couldn’t get any better.
Well actually it did.
Check out the best bits from our chat below where while Siva was chatting video games with our colleagues and Tom was mostly on the phone to his girlfriend (aw!), Nathan, Max and Jay talk everything from One Direction to getting lucky in a tent.
ON THE COMPETITION
How do you feel about One Direction? Are they the new JLS in terms of being your competitors?
Max: They are the cute, better looking, cleaner version of us. With definite age on their side. They’re going to be around for a very long time. I would love to take them out and get them all absolutely smashed one night.
Harry isn’t old enough to drink.
Max: Is he not? Even better. I want to get them all absolutely leathered.
Do you have a girlfriend yet?
Are you lying?
Jay: No, but when I get one I am going to lie.
For how long? You can’t keep it a secret forever.
Jay: Um, until about engagement stage. The stress that Max and ‘Chelle have to go through is just ridiculous. The stuff that she has to read sometimes and hearing him have to explain to her all the time is just…
I don’t understand how he doesn’t have a nervous breakdown. The stuff that he has to deal with - and the other boys who have girlfriends - plus all of that on top. If he didn’t have a shaved head he’d have alopecia through stress.
I’m so proud of you staying so calm all the time Max!
ON X FACTOR
You know what the X Factor golden rules are (Max’s old band, Avenue, were axed in series 3 for misleading the judges over an existing record contract). Why did Frankie get the boot?
Max: I never lied they never asked! (OK.co.uk may or may not have called him a liar at the time).
Nathan: It’s like Max now, no one’s asked him if he’s a girl so he’s allowed to be in our boyband.
The Wanted: [LAUGHS]
Max: Having sex with one of the contestants without their consent?
Tom: Well that’ll be against the rules, surely?!
Referring to their OK! column picture.
Jay: WTF, Jedward look like models here.
Max: We've met them loads of times. They are absolutely off their head.
[In high pitched Irish accents]
Jay: Edward, I need to do a poo, would you do it for me?
Max: John, my bum’s itching…itch your bum.
What all this about you getting it on with a girl in a pink tent?
Nathan: There’s a rumour going around that on the Lightning video set, I got lucky in a tent. So these girls bought me a baby-sized pink tent to christen and I said funnily enough I did it three weeks ago!
So is the rumour true?
Nathan: Yes…it was acting though. It was filmed... not for my own personal use though!
What about when the camera was off?
Nathan: Well we had to practice…
