‘Top Of The Pops’ caught up with McFly for a Q&A and asked when was the last time someone gave the band a stern talking to.
“No one tells us what to do,” Tom Fletcher responded. “I hate it when people are rude. I’m really bad if someone annoys me, like in supermarkets or something. Some guy was rude to us yesterday, but he walked off before I got angry.”
Asked for more details about the incident, Fletcher said, “We were there with Son of Dork and he gave me this thing and said, ‘Can you sign it?’ He worked at this TV show. So I signed it, handed it to Dougie and he signed it, and he handed it to Steve from Son of Dork and he said, ‘I’m in a different band.’ And the guy said: ‘Same thing, isn’t it?’ And we were like, ‘What? We’re here on your TV show and you’re being rude to us!’ He walked away before I registered what he said, and then I was like, ‘What did you say?’ But he’d gone…” The show? ‘cd:uk’.
