The boys answer your questions!
3 days! @takingoverlucy
what was the first album or song you ever bought?
ADAM – My first album was something very cheesy and I'll never tell. The last album I got was Justin Timberlake's new one. Check it out, very nice for a romantic night in.
What’s your favourite moment about touring?
ADAM – Just playing the shows. Seeing the reaction to the music in a live environment – there's nothing better!

Who's the most famous person in your phone book/contacts?
ANDY – We've actually not got that mad a collection of celeb mates. We don't go out enough! And when we do it's normally just us 4 and our pals from home. Mark from Westlife was helpful to us in the early days and he's in there, as is Gary Barlow who I've written with a couple of times now.
Who are your best friends in the music business?
RYAN – As corny as it sounds, each other. We literally are best mates. Which is handy considering we spend so much time together.
What has been the highlight of your career so far?
JOEL – There's so many. The album going to number 4 in the charts was a big one as is seeing the reaction internationally to Standing In The Dark. It's been a hit in a lot of countries and it always blows out mind to hear it being sung back at us by the audience when we play a show.
ORI DM ME PLEASE @lydiawaddleton_
if you could only listen to one song for the rest of your life what would it be?
ANDY – I think Hey Jude by The Beatles would be up there. I'm obviously a massive fan being from Liverpool and it's such an iconic song.
What inspired you to be in a band?
JOEL – John Mayer. Such an awesome guitarist, songwriter, performer – everything. His Room For Squares album made me want to make sure music was my career.
If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life what would it be?
ADAM – The other lads always make fun of me for my eating habits. I'm very fussy. Pizza, burgers and chips all the way. And Spaghetti Bolognese if I'm feeling crazy.
How much are you looking forward to North East Live?
RYAN – We can't wait. North East fans are some of our favourites and always very up for a good time. There's also some other great acts on the bill so it should be a great day in all.
Will you wear a SAFC shirt when you perform at the Stadium of Light?
ANDY – Being a Liverpool supporter I'd say the answer is a definite no. Ryan might though. He's always game.
