Dougie said: ‘McFly will at least start writing by the summer and I can’t wait.

“I love that band and I love the guys. It’s awesome.”

Speaking to Sun Online earlier this month, Dougie refused to rule out an impending McFly comeback, teasing: “I can neither confirm or deny… Which means anything you want.”

He added: “McFly is my identity, I have been Dougie from McFly longer than I haven’t, I love that and it never gets boring. It’s good to know that people still care – I like that.”
