South Glos Charlie Lenehan thankful to fans

Charlie Lenehan from Britain's Got Talent duo Bars and Melody says they under estimated how many people would come to their single signing. He told Good Morning Britain that around 3 thousand fans a day have been turning up and they only had 8 hundred copies of the single to give out.

"We're meant to be there for about 2 hours but we end up spending 4 or 5 hours signing. We're just really thankful to all the fans for supporting us even when we can't meet them properly and sign the CDs because there's none left."

Bath's skeleton bob champion Amy Williams has got engaged to her boyfriend after just 12 weeks.

She met Soldier Craig Ham on the dating website Tinder. The 31-year-old Olympic Gold Medalist told Hello! Magazine that she had given up looking for love in her home town of Bath.

For me, Bath is such a small city, everyone knows everyone. So you don’t meet new people. I had reached the conclusion that I was just going to be happy on my own.
