Pop band R5 were stunned when Selena Gomez gave them her phone number.

The American act - featuring Ross Lynch from Disney Channel's 'Austin & Ally', 'Glee' star Riker Lynch, Rocky Lynch, Rydel Lynch and Ellington Lee Ratliff, met the former Disney star at an event and she took the time to give them some advice about making it in the music industry.

Rocky gushed about the star and told BANG Showbiz: ''She gave me her number! You know how I never answered the question about whether or not I'm single? ... Well there's an exclusive, front page! 'Rolena' is real.''

The band think the 'Come And Get' singer is ''really sweet'' and revealed she played them an exclusive preview of her latest single during their time together.

Brother and bandmate Riker insists the band are taking each day as it comes but have dreams of performing with big names.

He said: ''We're just riding a wave so we'll see what happens. But I mean if they [record bosses] were like, 'You guys want to do a duet with Robin Thicke? I'd be like, 'Hell yeah, is he going to be in a referee costume? Is there going to be a bunch of teddy bears jumping around? Double check!''

R5 are currently in the middle of their 'Louder' world tour to promote their debut album and are planning a return to Europe this summer.
