It has been an incredible year for singer/songwriter Gavin James – and his star is continuing to rise.

The Dubliner, who turns 25 today, is celebrating as the new Nervous Remix is number 10 in the Spotify Viral Charts.

He also thanked BBC Radio 1 DJ Clara Amfo for playing his track Bitter Pill, saying it was a "great birthday surprise".

Avid fans of the singer, who will play at Electric Picnic in September, have been wishing the singer a happy birthday on social media.

The musician has been receiving photos and sketches from fans via Twitter.

Having signed to a major label in January, James has toured the world and traversed the US chat show circuit on the back of his hugely successful Live at Whelan's album.

The artist supported Ed Sheeran at his two Croke Park gigs and opened for Sam Smith across the US as well as Taylor Swift at Hyde Park.
