Tom's a big fan of The X Factor band

Tom Fletcher has revealed that he will help pen One Direction‘s second album.

The 26-year-old star believes the 9 years he’s spent as part of McFly make him the perfect man for the job.

‘Some songwriters have never been in a band,’ he explains.

‘But the 1D guys can relate to me, as I’ve been through the same kind of experiences.’

And it seems the singer’s eager to get stuck into the challenge. 

‘I can’t wait to write more tunes for One Direction,’ Tom tells the Daily Star. ‘I’m really proud of their success in America.’

Bring it on.
