THEY are the biggest boy band of the moment - but yesterday, The Wanted turned up to play a gig ... at a Wigan school!
Pupils at Up Holland High School were hit with an All Time HIGH when the chart-topping band descended.
The appearance was kept under wraps by staff at the school so it made for an extra special surprise for pupil Ellie McTigue, who had won a competition for the group to appear there in December.
However, bad weather meant they couldn’t get into town before Christmas after getting stuck in the North East – but they made up for that with style yesterday afternoon.
They sang a selection of their top hits for the starstruck youngsters.
And for Ellie, the day was made complete when she joined the boys on stage!
