The 38-year-old singer has admitted he bumped into the royal during a Live Lounge session on BBC Radio One and him and his The Script band mates gave the monarch a personal performance of 'Heroes'.

And the dark-haired hunk has revealed after that meeting the person in charge of the queen's twitter account followed him, as well as other charities.

Speaking to Metro newspaper, the 'Hall of Fame' hitmaker said: " I was the first person the Queen followed on Twitter. It was bizarre. It was when I was on 'The voice'. I was told about I didn't believe it - whoever was running her Twitter account followed a lot of charity accounts but then I was the first individual.

"She was lovely. I sang David Bowie's 'Heroes'. She came into Radio One and we were doing a Live Lounge. I had to sing it to her."

During their meeting the Queen discussed Glastonbury Festival, which she described as the "place with all the mud".

Danny explained: "She was talking to us about Glastonbury, asking if it was that place with all the mud. She was there for a BBC Radio anniversary and they asked us to perform personally. She sent us a letter thanking us for our performance, which was very nice. "
