Stephen Gateley, singer with Boyzone who celebrated his 27the birthday on March 17, said Elton and his partner David Furnish have been looking after him since his split with his own partner.

Gateley may be the UK's most famous gay pop star, but that hasn't stopped his female fans from thinking that one day he could still be theirs.

Gateley admitted that he still receives mail from devoted fans who lust after him, even though he's not in the market to the fairer sex!

Meanwhile, Stephen says Elton and David Furnish have been looking after him since his split with his own partner. "I met them when they rang me up and invited me to Nice for a week about eight months ago. And I've met various people through them such as the Pet Shop Boys and Janet Street Porter. Keith from Boyzone is still my best pal. We call each other every couple of days."

Stephen is currently starring in the title role of Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the New London Theatre until July 19, 2003.
