The Courteeners' Liam Fray thinks Collabro's album will be number one

The Courteeners' Liam Fray has admitted he's worried his band will be "left in the wings" when they go up against Britain's Got Talent act Collabro in the charts.

The indie rockers are set to unveil Concrete Love on August 18 and the album will be going head-to-head with Collabro's debut offering, Stars, after BGT boss Simon Cowell apparently moved it to the same day.

Frontman Liam Fray told the Daily Star: "He'll sell a million units and a proper band will be left in the wings.

"They will be number one next week."

Liam admitted he is less than impressed with the music scene in general.

"Nobody seems real, it's all so dull and boring," he said. "It's one long episode of Miranda. There are no personalities any more."

He added: "There's only a handful of bands that are doing it properly nowadays, like Kasabian and Arctic Monkeys. I remember I used to think 'I wanna be in that band,' but do you really wanna go on the road with Alt-J?"

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
