Australian singer Delta Goodrem is being protected round the clock by a team of bodyguards, after receiving hate mail about her relationship with BRIAN McFADDEN.

Goodrem's record label, Sony, organised the minders because the star has been subjected to abuse from fans of Irish McFadden's estranged wife, former ATOMIC KITTEN singer and reality TV star Kerry Katona.

Last month (JAN05), Goodrem and McFadden were subjected to a chorus of boos when they sang their duet ALMOST HERE in Dublin, Ireland.

She says, "I love Brian to bits. But the fear of being spat at and the constant catcalls make everything harder to bear."
