McFly star Danny Jones has revealed he was once sent a monkey dressed like him by a fan
McFly star Danny Jones was once sent a monkey dressed like him by a fan.
The singer - who makes up the British band with Dougie Poynter, Tom Fletcher and Harry Judd - was stunned when he received the unusual present through the post.
He said: "I got sent a monkey dressed as me once! Now that really was quite weird!"
Harry added: "I get sent pretty standard stuff like bras and knickers. We mainly get nice presents set to us, not weird ones. I get given Marmite and I got sent malt loaf once - actually that was pretty weird!"
Harry also revealed his most embarrassing red-carpet moment.
He told Britain's OK! magazine: "We are always cringing on the red carpet - at ourselves! Every time we step out of the car we cringe. You never know what reaction you are going to get. We want to walk in really quickly, but we don't want to be rude and ignore the paparazzi, not that they use our photos anyway!
"We all get embarrassed when people start looking at us - most people love it but we think they are saying bad stuff. We think they are pointing because they hate us."
