Here's everything you need to know about the ex Pop Idol star…

Who is Danny Tetley?

Danny Tetley is an actor and singer from Bradford.

He has been singing in the bars of Benidorm for years.

He first graced screens as a Pop Idol contestant back in 2001.

It has been 17 years, Danny took another shot at stardom as an X Factor contestant.

What happened to him on Pop Idol?

Danny was turned down by Simon Cowell back then, causing his dreams to come to an end.

Looking back at his failed Pop Idol attempt, Danny confessed: "I did try for Simon many years ago on a TV show called Pop Idol, not a lot happened, it’s why I’m back here.

"Simon was very nice but back then it was a very image-led business."

How did his X Factor audition go?

Before his audition, Danny explained how he felt about his X Factor audition saying: "This is my World Cup final, I’ve waited 17 years to show I’ve still got it, I’ve still got the same passion as before."

He sang And I Am Telling You from the hit movie Dreamgirls starring Beyonce, which recently became a fan-favourite musical.

His jaw-dropping performance left all the judges in awe and even inspired Simon to apologise.

The famous judge said: "I remember saying to you 17 years ago, you should come back.

"Look, I've felt there's something different happening in the music industry. I apologise for 17 years ago."
