The Wanted were broke before finding fame

The Wanted were broke before finding success.

While the 'Glad You Came' hitmakers have had a hugely successful year, breaking the lucrative US market and supporting Justin Bieber on tour, Siva Kaneswaran admitted when they started out, the group struggled to make ends meet.

He told the Sunday World newspaper: "I'm not gonna lie, we are quite comfortable now. But it was never about the money. In the beginning, we spent 18 months doing school and club gigs with nothing coming in. We were all in the red before our big break. Now we can focus on what's really important in life, the music and taking care of family."

While the band are looking forward to a busy 2013 with the release of a new album, Siva is looking forward to a quiet Christmas first.

He said: "There are some pubs in Dublin where I like to sit in a corner and enjoy a drink. And I have a couple of country pubs in Longford and Cavan where I go. They have massive big fires and nobody really knows me there, it's brilliant."
