If you've been following our totally over-excited tweets this weekend, you'll know we've spent the last couple of days ankle-deep in mud and wood chip, listening to some rocky sorts (ahem Bruce Springsteen, we mean you) at London's Hard Rock Calling festival.
They weren't our usual pop-thing, we know. But we also did some celeb-spotting from the backstage VIP Hard Rock Cafe - and although Prince Harry didn't show up and leave us open-mouthed at his ability to down several tequila shots in a small space of time, we did spot a lot of hot boys yesterday... from two gorgeous bands - Lawson and McFly (result!).
First up - Lawson. Well, their VIP experience was short and sweet because they were off to see Adam Lambert and Queen perform at Hammersmith Apollo after - but they did pop into the super suave Hard Rock VIP area to get some food (there were burgers, chicken wings, pulled pork and BBQ ribs on offer) and drinks (beer and cocktails) before playing their set.
The boys did let slip they had a whole load more food and booze in their dressing rooms but they were more excited about playing at the festival to drink it (yet). We're sure they enjoyed that fridge-load later!
We also noticed quite a few girls eyeing them up while they were sat about chatting (yes, us included). In fact, a few of the beady-eyed ladies were a little bit older than them (yes, us included). Could the boys be mastering the Harry Styles effect? We reckon so.
Lawson also played a blinding set on the Pepsi Max Stage – they packed out the tent and had some rock fans cheering them on too. Nice work fellas!
Then, just when Lawson disappeared and we thought we’d lost our boy- fix for the day, we bumped into Dougie Poynter and Danny Jones from McFly - who were having a rare festival day out with their gorgeous girlfriends Lara Carew-Jones and Georgia Horsley.
And guess what? Dougie, Danny, Lara and Georgia invited us to get our dance on to headliner Bruce Springsteen with them! We didn’t say no…
In between dancing like loons to ‘The Boss’, we nabbed Dougie for a quick chat - and he told us just how excited the boys were for the year ahead.
"We've been working on our autobiography," he explained. "There's so much to do but it will be ready in the next few months.
"And Tom and I have written a book for kids as well, which is out later this year. There's so much happening.
"The end of this year will be busy for McFly, it's going to be really great! We have a US tour to prepare for too."
Busy boys, they will be. And they’ve got bandmate Harry Judd’s wedding to plan too…
Danny told us that while he and Dougie were dad-rocking to Bruce, the other half of McFly were off doing grown-up things. Tom Fletcher was at a pal's wedding with new wife Giovanna and Harry was off planning his own wedding to Izzy Johnston.
So it won't be long before the plans are set and we can grill the boys about their stag do plans for McFly Marriage Number Two. We'll start making a list of questions now...
