It looks like One Direction won’t be the only Brit boyband touring Down Under next year!

While hitting our shores for a brief promo visit, The Wanted have announced plans to return for a full tour in 2013.

Clearly taken by our sunny shores and loyal Aussie fans, the five-piece told Hot Hits they’re already plotting their return.

“We’ll do a tour next year,” the lads told The Hot Hits this week.

Meanwhile, the group have snubbed comparisons with other boybands, insisting they don’t “fit” the usual stereotype.

“If you had to tick all the boxes of what’s a boyband, I don’t think we’d fit,” member Max George told The Mirror.

“We’re not the most attractive bunch that has ever been in the pop world. We don’t dance.

“But we can all play instruments, which is what is good about us.”
