Josh Cuthbert of Union J was originally supposed to be in The Wanted

Jayne Collins, the Wanted’s former manager, approached Josh Cuthbert to join The Wanted.  He met the boys and was supposed to be in Tom Parker’s place.  Problem was he was signed to a two year contract with his former band, Replay.  He still had a year left of his contract and his parents spent a lot of money trying to get him out of the contract, but it just didn't work and he missed out on the opportunity.  Click here to see the video of him talking about it since it's a tumblr video and I have no clue how to embed that. 

Thank god for that contract because now we have these wonderful boys
