MOTHERWELL youngster Anton McManus rubbed shoulders with the stars of Britain’s Got Talent last week.

The nine-year-old went backstage at the SECC in Glasgow when the hit TV show’s tour rolled into the city.

The visit was organised by renowned Wishaw volunteer Les Hoey, who felt that Anton, who was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma - a rare type of cancer - of the cervical spine aged four, deserved a treat.

A pupil of Our Lady and St Francis’ Primary in Carfin, Anton was joined by school pal Connor McLindon for the special visit.

The pair met the stars of the show, including dancer Razy Gogonea, singer Ronan Parke and winner Jai McDowall.
