It seemed as though boyband The Wanted were already getting excited about October 31st earlier this week after they turned up to a gig in Halloween fancy dress.

The fivesome appeared at their Radio 1 Live Lounge set in Maida Vale in all their frightening finery, surprising passersby and probably broadcasters too.

They hadn't gone for a particular theme for their outfits but appeared to have chosen their favourites, with Joker fancy dress and an Avatar suit among the costumes sported by the boys.

Nathan Sykes, Siva Kaneswara, Jay McGuiness, Max George and Tom Parker then went on to perform before happily posing for photographers outside - although why exactly they turned up to a radio set in costume is a bit confusing.

The Wanted are currently promoting their new single Heart Vacancy in the UK after hitting number one in the charts during the summer with All Time Low.
