Leona Lewis says the signing incident has left its mark on her

Leona Lewis has revealed she is still affected by the attack she suffered at a book signing three years ago.

The Bleeding Love singer was struck by a man posing as a fan when she was unveiling her memoir, Dreams, at a London book shop in 2009, and she told The Sun she still struggles to cope with what happened.

Speaking at her first signing since then, for her new album Glassheart, Leona said: "I'm definitely more aware when I go out in public and it has 100 per cent had an effect on me and my life."

Leona, 27, added: "But I've just got to deal with it. I don't like going out where it's really, really crowded.

"I'm obviously very suspicious of any men who look a bit dodgy."

The former X Factor winner added that being at another signing "brings back memories".

Earlier this week it was reported that security was being stepped up ahead of the album signing, with extra bodyguards on hand to avoid a repeat of the incident.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Taurus:

Your forceful personality makes people sit up and take notice of you. This is a great time to show off your expert knowledge. Demonstrating a command for facts and figures will result in a teaching or media position. Make sure you don't impose this air of authority at home. Your family won't appreciate being ordered around. You may be a superstar in intellectual circles, but you're just another relative on the domestic front. Don't bristle at your loved ones' irreverence. It's good for your ego.More
