They were once two separate groups but last year they pleased fans all over the world by uniting.
After a sell out tour that ended in the region last year, supergroup McBusted will soon be back at the Leeds and Sheffield Arenas this coming March and it's all eighties inspired... or so we thought.
Daniel Harris reports:

Seven superstores and six Homeplus outlets are among the unprofitable shops identified for closure by new chief executive Dave Lewis.
Mr Lewis said: "The decision to close the stores has been exceptionally difficult to take. I recognise it will affect many hard-working colleagues, our customers and local communities.
"Our priority is to explain what this announcement means for our colleagues and, wherever possible, offer them alternative roles with Tesco."
