A young Tyrone singer has revealed he is to appear on the BBC's new musical talent show Let it Shine, which kicks off on Saturday night.

The brand new show - the brainchild of Take That's Gary Barlow - will see Dungannon talent Deaglan Arthurs go up against a number of other boys for one of five band places for a new theatre production.

If they win one of those places they will tour the UK with The Band – a musical stage show featuring the music of Take That.

Martin Kemp and Dannii Minogue are to judge alongside Gary, with guest judges like Glee and Dreamgirls star Amber Riley and Lulu on the panel at different stages of the competition.

With such a star line-up and presenters like Graham Norton and Mel Giedroyc to share the stage with, it is no wonder Deaglan is nervous.
