The former Blue singer is happy with the news and took it to his Twitter to share it with his devotees, writing 'So happy! Thank you everyone for helping me!!'

British singer Lee Ryan is celebrating after an online fan petition convinced record label bosses to release his upcoming album. The former star revealed earlier this week that executives at Geffen had decided not to release "Confessions" in October, due to poor single sales.

Ryan's comeback offering, a double-sided single titled "I Am Who I Am/Secret Love" - his first new solo material since 2007 - limped into the U.K. chart at number 33 last week. Fans rallied round Ryan, setting up an online petition to have Confessions made available - and the star told them on Tuesday evening, July 13 that their campaign has been successful.

In a post on his Twitter.com page, he writes, "I think your petition has worked!!! The record label have said they will release it now!!! So happy! Thank you everyone for helping me!!"
