The First Lady is a big fan of our British boys

The Wanted claim First Lady Michelle Obama is one of their biggest fans and has their songs on her playlist.

The 48-year-old apparently loves the British boy band and likes to dance around the White House to their chart-topping tunes.

Singer Siva Kaneswaran told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "The highlight of our year so far has been meeting Michelle Obama. She was so normal with us. She told us that The Wanted were on her playlist. I'm sure we're on her 25 Most Played on her iPhone."

Michelle - who has children Malia, 14, and 11-year-old Sasha with her husband, President Barack Obama - previously admitted her daughters were big fans of the Glad You Came singers, and their musical tastes have clearly rubbed off on their mother.

Meanwhile, The Wanted stars Tom Parker, Max George and Nathan Sykes were snubbed by staff at exclusive London hotel the May Fair when they tried to check in after a boozy night out at Whisky Mist club. The trio was turned away so they stumbled on to a casino, where they were also deemed too drunk to be let in.

The Daily Star newspaper claims youngest band member Nathan, 19, ranted: "Don't you know who I am?"

Fifth member Jay McGuiness was not there.
