Motherwell X-Factor star Nicholas McDonald has his first local appearance of the new year at Hamilton Palace on January 4.

It will be his first local showing of the new year, and follows his sell-out success at Glasgow venue The Garage on December 29.

So many people wanted to attend that show - which he described as “the best ever” - that the star was forced to move from nearby venue Campus to take advantage of an extra 200 seats, and they sold out too.

For hundreds of fans it was a chance to enjoy “close up” a selection of the songs that took him all the way to the final of X-Factor.

Meanwhile for Nicholas it was a chance to thank mum Eileen by singing “happy birthday” to her - for which she was obliged to go on stage with him.

Dad Derrick and wee sister Antonia were also present for a concert reckoned every bit as memorable as his prime-time exploits on STV.

Now he’s set for Hamilton Palace on January 4, where tickets are £15, or £20 “meet and greet”, and doors are open from 4pm.
