British pop star Daniel Bedingfield has fewer friends now he's famous - because he finds it hard to trust people and has less time to see chums.

The I CAN'T READ YOU singer has tried to remain the same person, but acknowledges fame has changed him.

Daniel, 25, says, "Fame's made me take stock of who I can trust. I now have fewer friends because I have less time to see them.

"In some ways I'm a completely different person but I've tried to retain the essence of who I really am."
