POPSTARS have backed a new music website developed by a former Colchester student.

Laurence White, 22, of Great Notley, has filmed a host of celebrities, including X-Factor winner James Arthur, endorsing his idea.

Visitors to BITEtv can vote on their favourite tracks creating a real-time, live music chart.

Celebrities such as Olly Murs and Conor Maynard have already filmed messages of support for the idea.
