The Wanted are a ‘ropier’ version of One Direction


The Wanted
The group admitted they are sick of being compared to their pop rivals but Jay McGuiness can see the funny side of it.

He told the Daily Star newspaper: “It is depressing. But we are hairier and more decrepit. We are the ropier version.”

The Wanted – comprised of Jay, Tom Parker, Max George, Nathan Sykes and Siva Kaneswaren - recently admitted they probably do not have as many supporters as One Direction but think their strength would be more than a match for the other fans if a fight broke out.

Max said: "I wouldn't advise One Direction fans to fight with ours because our fans are really tough.

"Although, the quantity of theirs is probably a little bit larger. So, I think it'd be a good fight."

Both groups cracked the lucrative US market this year but the 'Chasing The Sun' hitmakers don't think America is ready for a reality show featuring their wild antics.

Jay said: "We won't get a TV show because only New York and LA would like us. The rest of America would think we were Satan-worshipping evil b******s."
