The Wanted went swimming with Sharks in Australia.
The 'Chasing The Sun' hitmakers took the plunge while on tour Down Under after 23-year-old shark enthusiast Max George insisted the band swim with the fearsome creatures at Sydney's Shark Dive Xtreme.
Max tweeted from the Manly Sea Life Sanctuary: ''Living the dream #sharks!... Best thing I've ever done... My love for sharks had just doubled!!''
The hunk - who recently split from soap star Michelle Keegan - then added a close-up photograph of his fishy friend along with the caption: ''My new friend... she was a beast.''
His fellow band mates weren't quite as enthusiastic, but were all eventually cajoled into The Tank by Max with the exception of pertified Nathan Sykes.
Nathan, 19, posted: ''To people saying that we should join max, I think you are slightly confused about our sanity...'' (sic)
Tom Parker was also extremely reluctant, joking: ''Someone just tweeted saying ''go on dive with sharks with Max''. Erm, 2 things wrong with that. 1) I can't swim all that great really...
''And secondly, but must importantly..there is SHARKS inside. You know, them 4 metre long creatures that can tear your head off!! #I'llpass.'' (sic)
However, he seemed ecstatic after his underwater escapade and updated his fans, saying: ''I ended up doing it. Unbelievable experience!''
The British boy band was taking time out from their promotional tour of Australia and New Zealand.
