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.
We didn't want to do one of those tacky books
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.”
Candid, fun and surprising
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.
