POP heartthrobs Union J were met by hundreds of screaming fans during a signing at Merry Hill.

The boy band, who catapulted to fame after appearing on X Factor, visited HMV on Monday (August 18) to promote their new single, Tonight (We Live Forever).

Josh Cuthbert, JJ Hamblett, Jaymi Hensley and George Shelley described their fans, including Ellie Fisher from Rowley Regis, as "ace" as they signed CDs and posed for photographs.

Kelly Reed, senior marketing manager at Merry Hill, said: "It was great to welcome the lovely Union J boys back into Merry Hill. They went down a storm at Christmas and this time was no different.

"The boys were greeted with an overwhelming chorus of fans with the queue of people hoping to snap a selfie with them stretching well out of the door.

"We hope everyone had a great time meeting the lads and wish them luck with their new single."
