More recently the group have been spending some time apart to pursue other projects, which for Tom and Harry involves focusing on fatherhood. Harry and his wife Izzy welcomed their daughter Lola Rose Emma Judd in January, while Tom and his wife Giovanna's son Buddy Bob Fletcher was born just a few weeks later.

Dougie Poynter has spent a lot of time in Los Angeles as he pursues acting projects, while Danny Jones told HELLO! that he too is considering starting a family with his wife Georgia.

Danny hinted that a McFly comeback was on the cards in January, telling HELLO!: "It's really nice to have a bit of breathing space after 12½ years with McFly. We've never really had this time off, so we'll give it a few months and see how we feel.

"When we're all refreshed, we'll go and smash an album."

Tickets to McFly's Anthology tour go on sale on Friday 29 April.
