Daniel O`Donnel is alarnmingly huge, he`s in the top 10 selling
British/Irish artists of all time and is truely truely terrible! Middle of

I went to see The White Stripes in Blackpool last Novemeber and when we came

huddled in garden chairs outside the venue (Empress Ballroom) who were
waiting to get Daniel tickets that were going on sale at 9am the next
