The band say Britney was nothing but welcoming when they met her while Jennifer was "perfect".

The Wanted have described Britney Spears as a "top girl" and Jennifer Lopez as "perfect" after getting to meet the two female pop icons over the last year.

The 'Chasing The Sun' singers got to open for the X Factor USA judge at her live show in Manchester last November, and say it was great getting to meet the 'I Wanna Go' star in person.

"Britney was really nice, a top girl," Tom Parker told The Sun this week. "She was really down to earth and couldn't have been more welcoming."

'Lightning' singer Max George also talked about American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez, who the band got to meet when performing their debut US single 'Glad You Came' on the show earlier this year.

"She's easily one of the nicest stars we've met," Max revealed. "She was perfect."

The five-piece band have also been working on their third studio album over the past few months, the follow-up to 2011's 'Battleground', and most recently went into the recording studio with N-Dubz star Fazer.

The Wanted also got to enjoy a "once in a lifetime experience" last weekend (30th June) when they served as official torch bears for the London 2012 Olympics with Coca-Cola, describing the experience after as an "amazing moment".
