POP star Danny Jones almost jinxed himself when he sang Time To Say Goodbye in a celebrity TV talent contest.

The 23-year-old from Bromley Cross — singer and guitarist with pop band McFly — finished in the bottom two on ITV1’s Popstar to Operastar show on Friday.

But he scraped through to week four after being spared by sympathetic judges, who instead said goodbye to fellow contestant Jimmy Osmond.

Danny chose the song made famous by Sarah Brightman and Andrea Bocelli, who took it to number 2 in the UK singles chart in 1997.

Despite failing to lead the pack on Friday, Danny remains favourite of the remaining five artists to win competition.

Betfred is offering odds of 3/1. Bernie Nolan, of the Nolan sisters, is second favourite.

Popstar to Operastar returns to ITV on Friday at 9pm.
