Max George tells Capital the group are looking forward to building on their achievement.

The Wanted have told Capital FM they are "very, very happy" about their recent success in America.

Last week, the group became the highest charting British boy band in America since Take That after 'Glad You Came' went to number five on the Billboard Hot 100.

Speaking to Capital about their success, Max George said they were looking forward to building on their achievement.

"We’re very, very happy and grateful. We've got a lot of work to do over there yet," he said. "We never expected it to get to number five, but it has and I think it's going to stick around."

He added: "Like I said, we're just grateful for it and we don't think we've smashed it yet – we've still got a long way to go – so fingers crossed that we can eventually smash it. But keep smashing it here as well."

Earlier this week, The Wanted announced plans to release their first album in America this April.

Meanwhile, Max, Jay, Siva, Tom and Nathan thanked their fan base over the weekend following an "incredible" sold-out performance at London's O2 Arena as part of their current UK tour 'The Code'.
