McFly feel "threatened" by One Direction.
The four-piece boyband - Tom Fletcher, Harry Judd, Danny Jones and Dougie Poynter - are concerned the young 'X Factor' band may steal their Guinness World Record for youngest group with a number one album.
Tom exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "How old are One Direction? I hope we're safe by the time they release an album. I think we'll be alright but I'm feeling a bit threatened right now. If they beat us do we have to give back our record? I hope not!"
The group also admitted while they are huge fans of the ITV1 show, they aren't sure whether they would be successful if they were to enter the talent competition.
Tom added: "It's incredible, I wish I was a part of it. It's the best possible platform for launching a music career. To be able to go on and perform in front of such a huge audience is incredible, but obviously it's difficult to be given the opportunity to go and do that.
"I think maybe we'd get to Boot Camp and they'd make us dance or something and they'd be like, 'Where did this guy come from?"
