Singer David Gray is convinced he has earned the right to begin acting like a megastar, after spending years as an aspiring musician.

The BABYLON star was originally uncomfortable about his growing fame when the unexpected success of his 2000 album White Ladder put him in the spotlight, but he has finally learned how to enjoy life as a celebrity.

He says, "I'm no more the underdog. I'm the overdog and I've started to behave like one.

"The whole thing of getting bigger took a bit out of me because I'm a person who worries about that and what it means.

"But I've sold a lot of albums now so I might as well take advantage of it."
