McFly rose to fame in 2004, in part due to their association with Busted who helped launch them by offering them the position of support act in their tour, A Present for Everyone.[5] Jones met Tom Fletcher when he auditioned for the boyband V (whom he had mistaken as being a more Bustedesque band), Fletcher, who was filming the auditions for Island Records, later approached Jones. The two conversed and found they had common interests and so Fletcher invited Jones to write with him and James Bourne.[6] When writing projects for Busted had ended, the two began writing for their own then unnamed band, eventually moving, temporarily, into the InterContinental Hotel, in London.[7] Drummer (Harry Judd) and bassist (Dougie Poynter) were subsequently recruited via an advert placed by the duo in the NME magazine. Jones has co-written all four of McFly's studio albums along with his fellow band members. He also penned three of his own, solo, tracks, on the first three McFly albums.[8][9][10] Jones also takes the role of lead guitarist in most performances, with Fletcher acting as rhythm guitar, and can be seen performing solos in songs such as That Girl, I Wanna Hold You, Everybody Knows & Transylvania.

Television and film appearances

Jones has appeared alongside his McFly bandmates in many tv shows. In January 2005, they guest-starred in an episode of the long-running British drama series Casualty,[11] and in 2007 made a cameo on Doctor Who episode "The Sound of Drums".[12] They also appeared on Ghosthunting with...[13] and Gordon Ramsay's The F Word.[citation needed]

Jones has appeared with McFly at many televised music events, including T4 on the Beach and the first and second annual Nickelodeon UK Kids Choice Awards.[14] They also starred in the teen comedy film Just My Luck with Lindsay Lohan and Chris Pine.[15] Without his bandmates, Jones has appeared on several shows, including Never Mind the Buzzcocks and 8 out of 10 cats.[16] On the 4th of October 2009, Jones appeared on All Star Family Fortunes with his family. He played against Zöe Lucker.

As of 15th January 2010 Jones has been participating in the British ITV1 celebrity reality television programme Popstar to Operastar. He was voted off on the fourth week by public vote, losing out to Marcella Detroit.
