The Wanted’s Tom Parker has opened up about the band’s split and competition from One Direction.
Recalling the time when bandmate Max George sat down the band and asked if they should split, Tom said: “It was a shock. None of the rest of us had a clue. At the time it was difficult.”
He added: “There can be tension but we’re lads. There’ll be a lot of shouting, then it’s over and done with.”
Tom also opened up on One Direction, saying: “Deep down I think I knew we’d come to our sell-by date. For every manufactured boy band, there’s a shelf life. We were supposed to rival 1D but no one could touch them.”
