The Wanted Reveal Details On "Intense" MTV Punk'd Prank

The 'Warzone' stars confess they were convinced the stunt was real after being held by police for two hours.

The Wanted have admitted their recent pranking on Ashton Kutcher's MTV show Punk'd was "pretty intense".

The 'Lightning' stars were involved in a kidnapping plot for the series and singer Max George told the Daily Star that they ended up being questioned for almost two hours.

He confessed: "We got pulled over by the police and they said there was a complaint against us about a girl going missing, and all of a sudden she appeared from the back of the car. It was pretty intense.

"I was like, 'This must be a joke', but then they left it going for nearly two hours and then I thought, 'It might not be'."

Pictures emerged from filming of the stunt earlier this year and featured the boys laying face down on the ground and surrounded by US police officers.

Meanwhile, the band have recently finished filming the music video for their new single 'Chasing The Sun ' out in Los Angeles and will be releasing their debut EP in the US on 24th April.
