The Wanted are planning to release a clothing line.

The British boy band - which comprises Siva Kaneswaran, Nathan Sykes, Tom Parker, Max George and Jay McGuiness - feel inspired by the successes other male stars have had with their forays into fashion.

A source told The Sun newspaper: ''They are also inspired by the massive success of Jay-Z and P Diddy's clothing ranges. It could be a great money-spinner.''

The quintet are said to have got the idea after meeting with designer Tommy Hillfiger at the Billboard Music Awards last weekend.

Perhaps one of the reasons why the group want to launch a clothing line is the fun they have choosing the models for their own videos.

Tom joked recently: ''Terrible. Worst day of my life.''

Nathan said: ''It was like a catalogue, we got to flick through and pick them.''

Max added: ''There were five picked to be like, the five. Then we were like, 'We're not overly keen on a couple of them,' and one of them who thought she was gonna be the star of it just ended up being an added extra.''
