Bad Boys!


They may be your fave pop boys with the power to rock you, but just how mischievious are Five?

Abs
What's the naughtiest thing you've ever done at school?

I was actually really good at school. I think the worst thing I did was throw chalk at the back of our Geography teacher's head.
...in the band?
Not much! J and Sean are the naughty ones.
...to one of the band?
The baddest thing that I've ever done is phone J up at 6am pretending to be a heavy breather!
When was the last time you started a row?
We do have rows in the band, but I don't start them. I'll listen to what someone has to say and then I'll have MY say.
Have you ever lied about your age?
Yes I have, but only to get into a pub when I was 16. I was out with my cousins and I told the man on the door that I was 23. He asked me for my date of birth and I just got stuck and gave the wrong year and made myself 20 years old. Whoops!
When was the last time you got into trouble?
When we were co-presenting The Big Breakfast I didn't turn up one of the mornings. I'd been staying at one of my cousin's houses and hadn't gone to bed until really late. I just didn't wake up!
What's the biggest fib you've ever told?
I tell white lies just to keep people happy. But the biggest fib I've ever told was to my teachers at school when the band was just starting out. I said one of my friends was really ill in hospital - somehow they found out that I'd been lying, phoned my mum and she phoned my manager!
What's the worst punishment that your mum and dad have given you?
They've never punished me because I've never done anything that bad - I'm the perfect son!

Rich
What's the naughtiest thing you've ever done at school?

I was generally a bit of a lad at school and got up to all sorts. The teachers knew I was a nightmare. I used to smoke in the cupboards and when I was in the sixth form I walked out of school and went down the pub! I did loads of really bad things but never got caught - so I won't admit to them now!
...in the band?
We're all quite naughty in interviews with the foreign press. We swap our names and pretend to be each other.
...to one of the band?
The best bit of trouble I've caused lately was when me, J and Scott played the mask gag on Sean. J had this nasty gas mask and he put it on at 3am in the morning, and me and Scott hoisted him onto the porch which was below Sean's window. J put his hand through the window and onto Sean's head. He screamed out loud and J was just killing himself laughing!
When was the last time you started a row?
Me and J had a huge row when we were on the Mizz roadshow in Sheffield. It was the first night and we were talking through the stage routine and we just kicked off from there. It was the most not-needed row that I've ever had with him, I think.
When was the last time you got into trouble?
I don't get into trouble anymore, but I used to when I was younger and I was in my lad phase!
What's the worst punishment that your mum and dad have ever given you?
Well, they have tried to ground me - but it didn't work. And they have given me big chats about what I've done wrong, but my mum is not a pushover - I don't get away with everything.
Have you ever lied about your age?
Yeah, of course I have - everyone has haven't they? I really spun a yarn to this girl at my mum's pub and told her that I was 24 - and she believed me! But when we all went to America a couple of months ago someone said they thought I was 27 and I found it quite depressing to hear that - although I suppose I've always looked quite a bit older than I really am.
Have you ever broken the law?
Yes, but I'm not telling you how because I never got caught and I don't intend to land myself in it now! It wasn't anything really bad, but it was definitely against the law.
What's the biggest fib you've ever told?
I really don't like lying.I do tell the odd little white lie to help me along, but I haven't told any whoppers for ages.

J
What's the naughtiest thing you've ever done at school?

The bell had gone and everyone was made to line up near the door before they'd let us go. I jumped on my mate and we went straight into this line of kids, who all fell over - it was like watching dominos falling. The teacher was at the end of the line, so he got pushed into the filing cabinet behind him!
...in the band?
We do get up to all sorts,especially in hotels,but I haven't done anything naughty for ages. Sorry!
...to one of the band?
I locked Rich in a toilet and sprayed him with fart spray and wouldn't let him out for hours. He was nearly crying when I did eventually let him out, and I managed to ruin £800-worth of clothes because he couldn't get the smell of fart spray out of them! He went mad.
What's the biggest fib you've ever told?
I once told this girl that I had a really nice car, to try and impress her,but then she asked me to pick her up in it - so I had to think very quickly and say I'd sold it!
When was the last time you got into trouble?
Since I've been in the band I have really calmed down, but I was in trouble all the time at school - so that was probably the last time.
Have you ever lied about your age?
Only to get into clubs when I was younger - everybody thinks that I'm lying about my age now.Loads of fans think that I'm 26 or 27, but I'm not even 22 until this month.
When was the last time you started a row?
It was probably with our managers about working too much and not having any time off.
Have you ever broken the law?
Yes, but I've never been caught. It wasn't anything major, though - just a few murders. Only joking!
What's the worst punishment that your mum and dad have ever given you?
They stopped me going out, but I probably deserved it 'cos I was a little git when I was younger.

Scott
What's the naughtiest thing you've ever done at school?

I used to go to acting school and I did some naughty things there. I changed the soap for paint in the toilets - quite a few people were walking about with paint on their hands!
...in the band?
We've often run around naked through hotel corridors. Me and Abs normally share a room when we're staying in a hotel and we've done lots of naughty things too, but I can't tell you what.
...to one of the band?
Apart from the mask episode with Sean, we haven't done anything to each other lately. We're all too tired most of the time, but we do like to wind each other up!
When was the last time you got into trouble?
I do something wrong every day and someone is always having a go about something, so yesterday was probably the last time.
What's the worst punishment that your mum and dad have ever given you?
They have grounded me before, but I always do my little cheeky grin and use big puppy eyes and eventually they let me off being grounded!
When was the last time you started a row?
A couple of days ago we were all at another shoot and we were supposed to stay there 'til 6 o'clock, but we were all feeling totally knackered. Basically,we all got into a strop and said that we wanted to go home.We ended up having a row with the photo people there. So rather than posing for the pictures, we just left!
Have you ever lied about your age?
Yes, very recently at the Mizz roadshow in Dundee. Me and Tony from the group Mytown told this girl some complete porkypie about how old we were - and she believed every word, poor thing!
Have you ever broken the law?
Yeah I have. I did get caught and I do regret it, but I was young back then, and I've learnt from my mistakes.
What's the biggest fib you've ever told?
I don't see the point in lying because at the end of the day you're going to get found out.

Sean
What's the naughtiest thing you've ever done at school?

I had a fight with a teacher once. She kept picking on me and one day in the playground she grabbed hold of my bag as I was running past and she ripped it. I went mad and I was right up to her face shouting at her. I knocked her hand and her coffee cup smashed into pieces on the floor. I got into trouble for that one.
...in the band?
We all love to gang up on our road manager Rob every now and then, but apart from that we don't really get up to that much mischief - honest!
...to one of the band?
The only naughty thing I've done is messed up Scott's hair. It's so perfect that it just drives me mad, so I went to fluff it all up and Scott bit me. He wasn't happy!
When was the last time you got into trouble?>
I got in trouble with the record company because I didn't want to do something at a photo shoot a couple of months ago.
When was the last time you started a row?
I'm not really one for causing arguments, to be honest. I'll say something if it's got to be said, but I don't start rows as a rule.
What's the worst punishment your mum and dad have ever given you?
I was sent to my room once and I remember being gutted 'cos Brookside was on and I wanted to watch it, so I rushed down the stairs only to meet my dad at the bottom. I ran so fast back up those stairs, believe me!
Have you ever lied about your age?
Only in certain bars and things, but not really. It can make things a bit difficult, of couse, because I'm only 16 - that's why I'm always trying to make sure that my age doesn't appear in too many magazines, otherwise my secret would be well and truly out!
Have you ever broken the law?
At some point in my life I probably have done.
What's the biggest fib you've ever told?
I only tell teeny-weeny ones, but I'm so honest that I end up telling the truth in the end anyway!
