Former The Wanted star Max George has said that he is currently auditioning for acting roles in the UK with the hopes of landing a role in a soap opera.

The 26-year-old Chasing the Sun hitmaker, who recently filmed a guest appearance on Glee, is hoping to find a role closer to home that doesn't require an American accent.

Speaking to The Sun, he said: "I do miss my family though and I'm still auditioning for roles in the UK.

"I'd be up for being in a soap, definitely. I've always been a big fan of them and I won't have to perform an American accent."

When asked if he's living the American dream, he added: "I'm really happy out here and Glee was one of my first auditions.

"To get that and be hanging around people such as Jane Lynch and Matthew Morrison has been the best experience for me."
