The Blue singer has set his sights on becoming a star in America and is looking to move to Los Angeles as he hinted he would have to move there to make his dream come true.

He told The Sun newspaper: "Where I want to be is Hollywood. So if I want to get there, I've got to earn my stripes.

"It's all about moving there isn't it? If I want to be taken seriously I've got to move there."

The 'One Love' hitmaker is no stranger to performing on stage as he is currently starring on London's West End and was a contestant BBC's 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

Before the boyband hunk was in Blue he started his career in his hometown of Birmingham and had his first leading role his in a school play when he was 15 and that's he decided to become a performer.

Talking about the Town Hall where it all started he said he always knew he wanted to "entertain and standout".

He previously said: "I can identify with Hansom and the Town Hall is where I first went on stage, so I feel like I've come full circle now.

"I was the lead in a play called The Days of Our Childhood. I don't remember too much about it except that I loved being on stage.

"There was always a side of me that wanted to entertain and stand out."
