She thinks everything I do is great and that inner belief has helped me believe in myself.
’ Stupid stuff,” the Bolton singer, now 31, reveals. If I didn’t have the private lessons going on in the background I probably would have given it up completely, if it wasn’t for my mum and my family believing in me.” With his Instagram account depicting exotic travels, recording studio japes and Jones on stage in front of thousands of adoring fans, the upbeat star clearly had the last laugh after he left Thornleigh Salesian College in 2002.
“I knew what I wanted to be, and the kid that was bullying me is still probably hanging out in the street outside the same sweet shop,” he adds.
“I am sure that if Danny was at the school now then he would have a much different experience.
We have a passion for music and absolutely delight in all our students taking part in it.” Danny is hoping to share his tips for success with the young contestants on his new TV project, The Voice Kids.
