Mob cancels star's performance

A mob of excited fans forced X Factor heart-throb Reece Mastin to cancel a CD signing in an Auckland mall.

It is believed Sylvia Park security cut short the 17-year-old's appearance for health and safety reasons.

Mastin was due to perform and sign CDs from 6pm.

During his whirlwind trip to New Zealand this week, the  Australian reality TV winner has already caused traffic jams and been chased down the street by screaming teenage girls.

Mastin is set to perform at Wellington's TSB Arena on April 12 and  Vector Arena in Auckland on April 14.
