Max George would rather celebrate Christmas than land a number one single.

The 'All Time Low' hit-maker claims he ''absolutely loves'' the festive season and would choose spending the special day with his loved ones over achieving a hit single with boy band The Wanted - which also includes Nathan Sykes, Jay McGuiness, Tom Parker and Siva Kaneswaran.

When asked to pick between Christmas and a number one song, Max told We Love Pop magazine: ''Christmas. Sorry, but it is. I do The Wanted all year and Christmas is the one time I get to see my family and I love seeing them so much. Sorry boys!''

The 25-year-old singer claims he dresses up for Christmas dinner, which is normally at his grandmother's house following a boozy pub session with his granddad.

He explained: ''I like to make an effort as my granddad always looks smart. Nanna always buys me some nice aftershave, so I'll put that on for the pub and when I get back she'll say, 'You smell lovely dear.''
