Boyband M.A.D are getting used to being mobbed by school girls in the street.

The group - made up of Michael Sutthakorn, AB Pryer and Dan Lewis - are Britain's newest teen pop act and have already scored a Top 40 hit with their debut single 'Toyboy'.

Band member Dan, who moved from his home in South Wales to London to join M.A.D, told BANG Showbiz: ''It kind of scared me before I moved because I didn't know what was going to happen, but once we got Top 40 it was all worth it.

''Now when I to go out in Cardiff with my friends, my local town, I get bombarded by fans, it's unreal.

''I've enjoyed the attention from girls and every time I went home it got worse and worse. The first time there were five, then ten, now there are hundreds and I can't walk about or shop properly because so many people come up to me, but it's so much fun.''

Dan, 17, was first discovered on Facebook by a music scout who watched videos of him singing and playing guitar, and the lads now have young girls follow them home from rehearsals.

He said: ''Every morning before they go to school they're outside the apartment. I remember once I was in the lounge playing Fifa in my boxers and there was a fan waving at me I was like, 'Oh no'.''

The band were once mistaken for boy band The Vamps in a McDonald's restaurant but say they're more of a cross between Busted and One Direction.

Dan added: ''We met some of the bands from the Big Reunion in the recording studio and met 5ive. They gave us a lot of advice, telling us to enjoy it because the time flies.

''We're all very different people and have only known each other for half a year but it's all great fun and we're just like brothers now.''
