Heathrow gig a departure for McFly

McFly performed at Heathrow airport

McFly have become the first band to play a gig at Heathrow airport.

Bass player Dougie Poynter got in the spirit by popping on a stewardess's uniform while his bandmates wore captains' outfits during the performance on Tuesday night.

The 5 Colours In Her Hair hitmakers surprised travellers with their show at Terminal Five's arrivals hall.

Hundreds of people watched the secret show, which was arranged to tie in with the Christmas lights switch-on.

The band played hits such as All About You and Star Girl as well as songs Party Girl and Shine A Light from their new album, Above the Noise.

Dougie said: "We've performed in some weird and wonderful locations before, but Heathrow was really special.

"We were able to meet fans from all over the world and we're honoured that they stopped to share that magical moment with us."

If you're renting a space, your landlord may tell you to leave with very little notice. Stay calm. It will be easier to find new living arrangements if you remain logical. Spread the word on social media. Be specific about your needs. A friend or acquaintance may hear of somewhere suitable for you.More
