POP Idol reject Andrew Creelman is hoping to prove Simon Cowell and the rest of the TV judges wrong.

The 20-year-old from Northallerton has joined forces with four other rejects from the TV show in a band called Outta Sync.

The five will now help to launch a new brand campaign by McDonald's.

The band recently spent a day in a recording studio, and have also filmed their own promo made by the creators of the BBC Perfect Day video.

The single, set to be released later this month, is called "i'm lovin' it" and is Outta Sync's own version of the theme song to McDonald's new brand campaign.

McDonald's spokeswoman Amanda Pierce said: "If there's a good reaction to the single and video we are looking at touring Outta Sync across the country."
