Dougie Poynter

Profession: Musician

Best known for: Jumping up and down in McFly

Phobias: Human injuries and insects in orifices

The smouldering McFly bass player’s used to being swooned over by hordes of female fans – but Dougie’s partial to passing out himself. “I faint at a lot of weird things,” he says. “When I get nervous I start dry heaving and sound like a cat choking on a fur ball.”

Still, dry heaving or not, Dougie will have the backing of the other members of MyFly. “I’m going to miss the boys from the band. Not a day goes by without me talking to one of them,” he says. Let’s hope he’ll make it through on his own.
