Speaking at The Amazing Spider-Man 2 premiere where he was greeted by screaming teenage girls, the star says that he takes it in his stride when it comes to crazy fans.

‘This is pretty intense,’ he said. ‘But it’s always nice to know that people appreciate you.’

But bad news for his hordes of female fans, the 21-year-old Brighton-born singer is taken.

‘I have a girlfriend,’ he said. ‘It was actually our year anniversary a week ago. She’s in Germany working right now so she couldn’t be there.’

Conor is currently preparing for the release of his new album and he is excited about what he has in store for fans.

‘We’re getting closer to finishing of this album,’ he said. ‘My next single will be out in the next couple of months.’

Something for fans to look forward to!

Like Justin Bieber, Conor was discovered after posting videos of himself singing on YouTube, like singing sensation Justin Bieber.

We asked Conor how he avoids going down the same path as the controversial pop star, who has hit the headlines for everything EXCEPT his music over the past 12 months.

‘Surrounding yourself with the right people,’ he says. ‘Whenever I go home my parents still make me do the recycling, that keeps me down to earth.’
