The Wanted band member offered to fight One Direction

THE Wanted have offered One Direction to have a brawl.

The rival boy bands have been locked in a war of words over who is best for months, and Jay McGuin­ess thinks the only way to settle it will be with a fight.

He said: "It'd have to be a pub brawl, wouldn't it? And we wouldn't be doing any of that fancy fighting. It's not like we know kung fu or anything. We'd just do what boys do."

Jay - who makes up The Wanted alongside Max George, Nathan Sykes, Tom Parker and Siva Kaneswaran - also thinks his group are a dead cert to win.

When asked about the outcome by the Daily Star newspaper, he laughed: "Who do you think?"

Max, 24, also joked about how the feud with One Direction - which includes Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson - started.

He said: "I think they fancy us really. It's just their way of flirting.

"It all started because we said they were like the Jonas Brothers. But we like the Jonas Brothers. We didn't mean it offensively."

The boy band battle stepped up in November when Zayn called Max a "geek" and a "wannabe" on twitter, prompting him to offer to settle their differences over Christmas, when they both played the Jingle Bell Ball in New York.

Max tweeted Zayn: "Tell me you're (sic) problems without the 8 security in NYC... The only problem I have with you is the s**t banter. Grow up son (sic)."

Zayn replied back:"I'd f**king love to, see you in new York big man ha u clown (sic)."
