  Darius gains on Gareth in Pop Idol battle
Updated 01 February 2002, 16.43
Gareth, Darius and William
Darius Danesh is closing the popularity gap between him and Gareth in the fight to become the ultimate Pop Idol.

Gareth Gates is still the favourite to win but Darius is a close second and William Young is now the outsider after a phone poll.

Darius seems to be doing better because the media's been giving him more support than before.

But judge Dr Fox has reportedly told a magazine that Gareth's success is mostly down to his good looks and stammer.

He's said to have told Hot Stars: "If he wasn't so pretty and didn't have a stammer, I don't think he'd be where he is."
