Mcfly - Tom Fletcher Denies Handing Mcfly Cast-offs To One Direction

McFly star Tom Fletcher has blasted reports he handed One Direction "second-rate" tracks when he was asked to write songs for the hit boy band.

British pop-rockers MCFly were hired to compose catchy tunes for the What Makes You Beautiful sensations, but in a new interview singer Danny Jones joked that they palmed off a "slightly s**tter" song on One Direction and kept their favourites for themselves.

However, Fletcher is adamant he gave his chart successors some of his best ever work, and has taken to Twitter.com to stress his bandmate's comment was made in jest.

He writes, "So, the stuff in the press today about us giving One Direction our 's**t' songs is obviously completely false. What Danny said was obviously a joke. We would never, Never, give anyone 's**t' songs and as I clearly say in the interview, 'You obviously always want to do your best work'.

"In fact all 3 songs I've written for 1D are some of my favourites I've Ever written and... I genuinely would have kept them for MCFly but I have never, and will never give anyone second rate songs. How would that ever be good for me as a song writer?"
