Big days for the Days

SCOUTING For Girls' support band The Days are looking forward to the biggest gigs of their career.

Lead singer Luke Simpkins said: "They're huge shows, thousands and thousands of people – but I think we're ready now."

The band have known each other from the age of 12, when they all attended the same school. Although obviously brothers Luke and Dan have known each other a lot longer.

They moved to London from Devon in their teens and went to university, but were spotted by the record label that discovered Coldplay and Keane, and have since gone on to support The Fray and Paolo Nutini.
