X Factor reject Lloyd Daniels said yesterday he has been deluged with fan mail — and has even found the time to reply personally to some of his fans.

The 16-year-old singer from Wales just missed out on reaching the semi-final of the ITV1 singing competition after being booted out of the show.

He said he was sad to leave but that he hoped for a bright future and admitted he would probably be “mobbed” by fans in the street, even after leaving the show.

Daniels is now backing Joe McElderry to win the X Factor competition.

He said: “Hopefully he can do it for Team Cole.”

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

This is a wonderful opportunity to develop a creative project. Keep a notebook where you can store images, ideas, phrases and melodies that pop into your mind at odd intervals. This treasure trove will help you blast through blocks that held you prisoner in the past. It will also help to devote a set time each day to artistic pursuits. Exercising your imagination on a regular basis will cultivate contentment. There's more to you than your job title.More
