A second album, Everybody Wants to Be on TV, was released in April 2010 and peaked at #2 on the charts. This was preceded by the single "This Ain't a Love Song", which went to #1 on the UK Singles Chart for two weeks. To date, Scouting for Girls have sold over 2,000,000 records and have been nominated for four Brit Awards and one Ivor Novello Award.
