TEENAGE internet popstar Daniel J met his fans at Eastbourne Pier at the weekend.

Daniel Johns, who films all his YouTube videos in the town, signed autographs for the girls along Eastbourne seafront on Saturday (July 28) before filming his latest video, which the fans were invited to feature in.

Daniel J is 15 and has been described as Eastbourne’s answer to Justin Beiber.

He has 29,000 followers on Twitter and his mum Maxine Johns says his fan base is growing quickly.

She said, “His bedroom wall is covered in the fan mail he receives.”

Daniel J has even been brushing shoulders with the stars on the red carpet at the BAFTAs earlier this year and is currently working towards getting a record deal.

His mum is confident he will get signed soon, as he has been working with Peter Andre’s producer Rawknait, who has also written for The Saturdays and Kelly Roland.

Maxine says he has three original songs ready to be recorded.

She added, “It’s these songs that we are confident will get him the attention he so craves, from the UK and America.”
