But the Copleston students got a welcome surprised when the boys turned up to meet them.

“Chloe cried instantly but I was too shocked.”
The show, hosted by Pop Idol runners up Sam Nixon and Mark Rhodes, was filmed in London on Tuesday and was due to be aired on BBC2 today.
Chloe originally wrote to the show to ask for a happy birthday message from McFly but the producers then invited the friends to be on the program.
The band dedicated songs on the show to the pair and spent two hours chatting with them
Chloe, of Camden Road, off Foxhall Road, said: “I want to meet them again now. They were really friendly, just as I'd expected them to be.”
Amy's mum Alison Clarke said: “Meeting them was the last thing they expected to happen.
“Amy's bedroom is covered wall-to-ceiling with McFly posters and it was like a dream come true for her.”
