The Wanted star Jay McGuiness has dismissed reports suggesting he recently got married in Las Vegas, insisting he didn't "pull a Britney", referring to pop star Spears' 52-hour marriage, which began with a surprise Sin City ceremony.

But the pop star admits the wedding news was almost true.

He tweets, "For the askers - no I didn't get married, doesn't mean we didn't stumble to a chapel in Vegas in hastily bought suit & dress. But no wedding.

"So close to pulling a Britney."
