They had been queuing since early morning to get a photo, and in some cases a cheeky kiss, from the former X Factor host and runner-up.

He stopped by the Dream 100 and Town 102 studios as part of his nationwide bus tour promoting new single You Don’t Know Love, taken from his new album due out later this year.

“The fans have been superb. The fact they’ve taken time out of their morning to come and say hi means so much to me,” said the Witham born singer.

“It’s good to be back in Ipswich and great to be back with new music. The reaction to the single has been amazing.”
