Pop star Mandy Moore has experienced 'MANDYMANIA' in the Philippines.

The teenager has just returned from what she calls an amazing trip to Manilla - because she didn't realise how popular she is there.

The 19-year-old says, "I felt like I was in a boy band or something. I got off the plane after a 20-hour flight and there's news cameras and paparazzi and fans. I was living it up for the week.

"Apparently they loved my film A WALK TO REMEMBER - it's very ideal in their society."
