CHART-topping McFly have spread their wings and taken off in their first Hollywood movie - romantic comedy Just My Luck.

And now they're hoping to conquer the States with their new album... and even remake the Ghostbusters movie, which starred Bill Murray.

In an exclusive interview with the Sunday Mail, the boys revealed:

Rumours of an affair between drummer Harry Judd and movie babe Lindsay Lohan are wide of the mark'

A rocking performance in New Orleans in their movie was really filmed at the Hammersmith Apollo in London'

They kept getting the giggles during the filming of the flick'

And how Danny Jones gave up a promising career as a footballer to play guitar.

Singer Tom Fletcher, Danny, bassist Dougie Poynter and Harry star with teen sensation Lindsay in the frothy comedy.

Harry, 20, added: "There is a moment in the movie when I am behind the drum kit and you might see that I have had an attack of the giggles."

Harry says: "There were paparazzi all around the film set.

"Lindsay said she was sorry she couldn't hang out with us because of all the paparazzi."

Harry, to the amusement of the rest of the band, even found himself romantically linked with the American actress.

But Lindsay said: "I didn't date Harry. I didn't fancy any of the McFly boys - I prefer the Arctic Monkeys."

McFly filmed in New Orleans a month before the city was hit by Hurricane Katrina.

In the movie McFly are seen giving a rocking performance on stage in New Orleans but Tom admits the show was actually filmed on the other side of the Atlantic, in front of their most devoted fans.

He said: "It was filmed at Hammersmith Apollo. We did a show especially for the movie because they wanted it to look like a real concert with real fans. …
