The singer is currently recording 'Daniel and Majella's B&B Road Trip' which sees him stopping off at rest houses around the country.

While filming an episode of the show in Cork, a gaggle of his adoring fans descended on the B&B eager to catch a glimpse.

"There was a huge level of secrecy surrounding film shoots, no one was supposed to know that Daniel was coming," a source working on the show told The Irish Sun.

"Within minutes of him turning up, the door bell would be ringing with local fans turning up wanting autographs.

"It was the worst kept secret in history. It was pure chaos," the insider added.

And it wasn't just Corkonians who were keen to meet the singer.

While filming in locations including Tipperary and Belfast in recent weeks, the crooner was inundated with fans of all ages.

B&Bs he and wife Majella have stayed in during their televised tour of Ireland are expected to receive a major boost in interest.
