Christmas Day is a particularly special time for Tom Fletcher and Matt Willis. The McBusted musicians have opened up about being dads to young children in a pre-recorded video for HELLO! Online's advent calendar. Tom, who shares sons Buzz and Buddy with wife Giovanna Fletcher, revealed that he will be the one who is first to wake up on the day. "Christmas Day, it's got to be dark, everybody else has still got to be asleep I like being the first one up on Christmas Day," he confessed.
However, Matt - who is dad to Isabelle, Ace and Trixie - admitted that it will be his kids who wake him up. "I'm not the first one up," he explained. "Christmas Day starts when my kids run into me and jump on my bed. They'll be jumping on me probably at about 5am I'd say." The pair are due to co-star in the Christmasaurus, the musical adaptation of Tom's bestselling novel of the same name. Matt, 34, recently told HELLO! Online how his kids were excited to see him in the show, saying: "My kids love this book, that's why I said yes straight away because we read it to them before Christmas, we read a chapter a night leading up to Christmas and it was a really special moment, we all loved it and we had a really good time."
He added: "I did the voices of all the characters and really went to town! So I got the text and was like, 'Yes!' My kids are going to lose their minds when they find out I'm playing the hunter so they're very excited." The pop stars went on to reveal that their children get along well together, and that Tom's son Buzz, three, played around Matt's house a few days earlier. Tom said: "[Buzz] told me all about it, he was really very excited." Matt added: "Our kids go to the same school, so we see each other on drop off all the time."
