Max George would rather celebrate Christmas than land a number one single.

The 'All Time Low ' hit-maker claims he ''absolutely loves'' the festive season and would choose spending the special day with his loved ones over achieving a hit single with The Wanted.

When asked to pick between Christmas and a number one song, Max told We Love Pop magazine: ''Christmas. Sorry, but it is. I do The Wanted all year and Christmas is the one time I get to see my family and I love seeing them so much. Sorry boys!

The 25-year-old singer - who is joined in The Wanted by Nathan Sykes, Jay McGuiness, Tom Parker and Siva Kaneswaran - claims he dresses up for Christmas dinner, which is normally at his grandmother's house following a boozy pub session with his granddad.

''I like to make an effort as my granddad always looks smart. Grandma always buys me some nice aftershave, so I'll put that on for the pub and when I get back she'll say, 'You smell lovely dear'.''
