Dougie Poynter of McFly checked in with his Twitter followers (@dougiemcfly) moments ago, confirming news that he and Frankie Sandford of The Saturdays have split up, and throwing cold water on reports that she ditched him for another man. Dougie writes:
I just wanted you all to hear it from me, me and Francesca have broken up. It is way to soon for either of us to be seeing other people, so please don’t believe any of the rumors. It was on good terms and she is still one of my best friends x
Frankie Sandford of The Saturdays is out with a slideshow from her recent trip to Disneyland with boyfriend Dougie Poynter of McFly. The couple enjoyed a “Minnie” adventure, “goofing” around and taking in all the sights.

McFly star Danny Jones is opening up about his relationships with Olivia Shaw, Miss England 2008 Laura Coleman, and his current girlfriend Georgia Horsley (Miss England 2007) in an interview with News of the World. The 23-year-old said he’s not a cheater, and as settled down with 22-year-old Georgia.
Still, Laura doesn’t see it that way according to pals. “I know that’s what she’s been getting people to say, but that’s not the type of thing I do,” Danny insisted. “I’m not a cheat. I wouldn’t have the guts to do that. I was obviously a single lad at the time and having fun. I saw a girl and I fancied her. I just like good-looking girls, to be honest!”

McFly’s Danny Jones is appearing on ‘Pop Star to Opera Star’, but is unsure whether it will change his on stage performance. “I think it might lengthen the life of your vocal chords, because the techniques you’re picking up,” Jones told ITN. Watch the clip below.

Sorry not blogged, a lots been going on. Went to Spain for some gigs, was awesome. Dougie turned 22 in Madrid and we spent the day travelling. We then spent a couple of weeks in Atlanta working with Dallas Austin and his awesome friends. We came up with some absolute tunes!!!!! The next album is gonna blow you away. Can’t believe how awesome the songs are already! Had a crazy time with Dallas, ended up being invited for dinner by Elton Johnat his home which was lovely. Were up to see the sun rise most days, was a very inspirational trip. Anyway, since then we’ve been home, getting in the mood for Christmas and catching up with friends. Apart from the odd car crash, it has been an amazing month. Ready for Santa now. Ho ho ho T X
Tom Fletcher of McFly checked in with fans on their blog at MySpace (@mcfly) on Thursday (November 5), offering an update on the pop rock band’s upcoming album. Fletcher writes:
Hope you’re all well. Sorry Not blogged much. To update you on what we’re doing, we are spending the rest of the year writing and making demos for our next album. We have written a lot of songs since ‘Radio:ACTIVE’ and started recording some of them earlier in the year in Sydney. There were a couple of songs that really stood out above the rest and in the recording sessions we realized that we’d found a new direction that we thought could be really interesting and different.

Me and Danny are back in the studio today with Mr Jason Perry to start recording our vocals on all the songs we put down in Australia. Can’t wait for you all to hear them. Think four of them are the best songs we’ve ever written! Well, we like them at least so we think you will too.
