US chart record for The Wanted

The Wanted have become the highest charting UK boy band in the US charts, beating the likes of Take That.

The group have made it to number five with their track Glad You Came after picking up a massive boost in sales following the inclusion of the song in hit show Glee.

The success of the track - a former UK number one - puts them above Take That who got to number 7 with Back For Good in 1995.

Another UK boy band, One Direction, are currently at number 50 in the official US Billboard Hot 100 Chart with What Makes You Beautiful.

The Wanted singer Jay McGuiness said: "We're proud that Glad You Came is doing so well. The British are smashing it at the minute in the US and it's great to feel like we're helping steer that."

The band, who have just finished their US tour, will raise their profile even more this month when they perform live on The Jay Leno Show.
