The Wanted: "We have quite a big male following"

The Wanted have opened up about their male following, saying that it is "quite big".

The band are perhaps best known for sending girls into wild delirium, but it seems like the quintet have a bit of an effect on the male population too.

Speaking to Digital Spy, Jay McGuiness said that they cultivated a big gay following in their early days by playing gay clubs.

However, he did say that being a boyband, there are "so many advantages" to having a loyal female fanbase. He said:

"Yeah, we have quite a big male following, whether it's gay or otherwise. When we first started we did a lot of gay clubs, which is traditional for boybands. We had a great time. When we came to America, we did a lot of them again. As much as we're a boyband, there are so many advantages to having a real loyal female fanbase, but I'm happy with how much we've branched out into the male side of things."
