The owner of the bookshop replied, saying: “oh my goodness! Thank you Will! (you've made this voted-religiously-for-you-on-pop-idol-as-a-teen bookseller squeak with delight).”

Young, who was catapulted into stardom when he won Pop Idol in 2002, has written several books. His latest, which is a guide to well-being, was published earlier this year. The BRIT award winner also recently released an album, Crying On The Bathroom Floor, which hit number three in the UK chart this year.
