They've enjoyed a meteoric rise to fame in the last couple of years and with that has come a legion of female fans.
And it seems one member of the band in particular, Jay McGuiness, is still enjoying their new found attention.
The curly haired singer picked up a pair red frilly knickers and pocketed them during their performance at Z Festival in Rio de Janeiro on Friday.

Cheap thrills: Jay McGuiness picks up a pair of frilly pants while performing at Z Festival in Brazil on Friday
The Glad You Came singers were mid song during the Brazilian festival when Jay spotted the treat that landed on stage for them.
Instead of ignoring the pretty pants, the cheeky chap decided to pick them and wave them at the excitable audience before putting them in his top pocket for later.
After the concert his band mate Siva Kaneswaran confirmed the incident, tweeting: 'Yes that actually happened @jaythewanted the perv.'
Female fans: The Wanted, minus Max George, spent time meeting and greeting their many female fans
Knicker-stealing Jay also took to Twitter later, after posing for numerous pictures with fans and wrote: 'The Fanmily were awesome tonight #ooft.'
It's becoming a bit of a thing for Jay to get up close and personal to groupies while performing.
Earlier in the year he kissed a female fan on stage in Las Vegas.

Following the kiss, which was captured on camera, he announced to the crowd: 'I've never kissed an American girl before.'
It's not just the fans that Jay seemed impressed with though, earlier in the week he tweeted about where the globe trotting boys were staying, he wrote: 'Woah hotel is beachside, can hear the sea cause half the room is huge glass windows- trying to say it’s cool without getting pretentious :)'
The group took the opportunity to perform their new single I Found You, which will be released on November 4 ahead of their third studio album, that features collaborations with LMFAO and Rita Ora.

Speaking about their new song, Nathan Sykes said: “We're doing a video for it in a couple of weeks as well in LA, which is really exciting. We are just trying to lock down all the ideas for it now.”
Max George added: “We've been working on [our next album] for, like, the last six months, but it's still not ready yet. We're still working away on that and we've got plenty more traveling to do yet, so I'm not actually sure when the album is going to be ready.”
The popular boy band arrived in Brazil last Wednesday ahead of the concert.

They arrived on the same day that fellow Brit band McFly, who also preformed at the festival, did.

The Wanted played the festival in 2011 as well.
X Factor judge Demi Lovato will be closing the festival on Sunday.
