The Wanted's Max has told Newsround that they can't compete with reality bands like One Direction.

He said: "I don't think anyone can ever compete with a reality TV band, they're just too big, like any of the acts off [The X Factor]."

On rivalry between them and 1D: "We don't really know them that well so I wouldn't say there's any rivalry.

"There's a few little snarky comments here and there, but it's all part of the fun."

The group also said there was "potentially" a collaboration in the pipeline with Justin Bieber.

But they did confirm they're going into the studio with Chris Brown, as well as working with Pitbull, Rita Ora and LMFAO.
