The 'Warzone' singers say they still look up to their fellow boy band following triumph in the US.

The Wanted have confessed that they have a desire to become as big in the UK as Take That.

The 'Lightning' stars became the highest charting British boy band on the US Billboard Top 100 chart last week with their single 'Glad You Came' which overtook 'Back For Good' from the fellow boy band stars.

Speaking to ITV's Daybreak, singer Jay McGuiness said: "They've smashed the UK in a way which we haven't yet and hopefully one day we will but it was nice that America really quickly decided we could work over there."

The Wanted are currently coming towards the end of their debut UK arena tour 'The Code' and announced that they have recorded their "best song yet" this week.

The 'All Time Low' singer's will head back to the US later this month for an appearance on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and are also set to appear in the latest series of Punk'd with Ashton Kutcher.
