The boys want to be big

GMD3 have now changed their name to District 3 to avoid being confused with GHD hair straighteners and Micky Parsons, 18, Dan Ferrari-Lane, 19, and Greg West, 18, have plans to bring back R&B.

The lads went to the Sylvia Young Theatre School together (famous former students include Billie Piper and Emma Bunton) and would like to be as famous as Michael Jackson, Chris Brown or even 1D.

‘One Direction have obviously been huge,’ Dan tells us.

‘We’d love to have even a slice of that success.’

Dan, who the other boys rate ‘a looker’, has a bit of a crush on fellow X Factor contestant Ella Henderson and admires Nicki Minaj.

‘Nicki Minaj is a cool artist,’ he tells us. ‘And Rachel McAdams is beautiful.’
