The Wanted's Max George still gets homesick.
The 'Glad You Came' singer - who hails from Manchester, North West England - has been jetting all over the world with since finding success with his bandmates and while he loves being a international pop star, he admits it can sometimes be tough as he misses his home comforts.
He said: ''I struggle with homesickness quite badly. I'm even homesick in London! That's the hardest thing, especially when stuff happens at home and you can't be there. I speak to my mum about four or five times a week cos we're very close, so it's nice getting to spend time with her. I tell her everything ... within reason!''
Max and the rest of the British boy band - Nathan Sykes, Jay McGuinness, Siva Kaneswara and Tom Parker - have even taken the US by storm and he admits they were shocked with their success Stateside.
In an interview with Top of the Pops magazine, he said: ''So many boy bands have killed it at home and tried to break America, but something doesn't translate - I don't know why; I can't put my finger on it. But I think we've just caught it at the right moment, because British acts are doing so well. It's been surprising, but lovely.''
