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."
