During THAT interview with Rolling Stone mag (yep, the one where they got naked on the cover and then caused a whole load of controversy), Ashton Irwin explained that being on tour with One Direction made them want to get in shape asap.

"People think we're f**king teenage pizza eaters, man", Ashton said, which basically sums up our entire life aesthetic. What's wrong with being one of those?

"We are really self-conscious about the way we look," he went on. "We exercise a lot, we eat well. People are looking at you and you want to look good. You also want to be confident in yourself.

"It takes a lot to step up in front of people a lot of the time. We were on tour with them [One Direction] and they worked out a lot. F**k, I want to look good."

You DO look good Ashton, trust us. So good in fact that we want to spread you on a cracker and eat you for lunch please. Maybe with pizza so that we can be f**king teenage pizza eaters together.

Thanking the gods for the blessing of 5SOS's muscles? Forever in debt to One Direction now? Let us know with a tweet to @Sugarscape.
