More than 300 fans have queued up to meet Darius Danesh as he launched his first single.
The Glaswegian was greeted with screams of delight from the crowd at the HMV store in Oxford Street, London.
The 21 year old was signing copies of his self-penned single ‘Colourblind’.
Darius, who landed a deal with Mercury Records after the Pop Idol television series finished earlier this year, is widely tipped to knock fellow contestant Gareth Gates off the top of the single’s chart this week.
Before the signing session, Darius said “I’m over the moon that I’ve finally been given the opportunity to release a single which I’m really proud of, which is, I suppose, my thank you to everyone that supported me through Pop Idol.”
“If my single gets to the top ten, I’ll be over the moon. If it gets to the top five, I’ll be screaming down the phone to my parents.”
