PAUL Potts became a household name when he won the first series of Britain's Got Talent in 2007.

His performance of Nessun dorma impressed the whole country and meant he could leave his job at Carphone Warehouse behind and pursue his dreams.

The tenor's life changed dramatically overnight and his debut album One Chance sold more than three-and-a-half million copies, clinching the number one spot in 13 countries.

Six years later, he is still riding high on the wave of success and is about to embark on a UK tour, including a date at The Grand Theatre, Wolverhampton.

This will be Paul's first time in the city and although he is looking forward to his performance, he admitted: "I'm a little nervous".

Despite having performed in front of thousands of people across the globe, he said still gets butterflies before he goes on stage but said: "That's part of performing. I have to learn to deal with it."

Revealing what fans can expect from the show, he said: "There will be something from all four of my albums, some new stuff and as is always the case, a tribute to Mario Lanza - that always goes down really well with audiences - he had a huge influence on people of all ages."

Paul will be joined by special guest Catriona Murray, a classical soprano from Nottingham, when he performs at The Grand on Friday October 16.

The show starts at 7.30pm.
