Joey: When we were all put together we all got on so well.
Jordi: Blair contacted me I was acting and singing at the time so it worked well.
Ollie: As far as the name goes our fans chose it. We set up a twitter account with the user name @YourBoyBand and built up fans by posting accapellas of us singing on YouTube and then as we built fans we asked them to choose our name for us becoming known as the peoples boyband.
