Jason Donovan Ridiculed For Comparing Himself To Frank Sinatra On BBC Breakfast

Posted: Updated:

Jason Donovan has been mocked for comparing himself to singing legend Frank Sinatra on BBC Breakfast.

Viewers took to Twitter to lambast the showman after he compared his new album as a cross between Michael Buble and the legendary American crooner.

Donovan, who had a string of hit singles in the late 1980s and early 1990s, this week released Sign Of Your Love, a collection of covers including Bewitched, With You and They Can't Take That Away From Me.

However, when recently asked if the release was an attempt to "reclaim his pop crown", Donovan told Metro: "I'm not trying to reclaim anything."

And today, after listening to him perform on Breakfast, viewers have made it clear that he won't be taking Sinatra's crown either. One viewer complained:


Poison Gaz
Jason Donovan describes his new album as a cross between Sinatra & Buble. Sinatra is turning in his grave and Buble's seeking legal advice.

Another said:

As much as I love Jason Donovan. You are no Frank Sinatra my friend!

While one went as far as to say:


Craig Le Grice
Jason Donovan, singing on the BBC News, offended my ears this morning. Give up man, the Kylie / Neighbours / Technicolor horse has bolted...
