Russell Watson on starring in Follies musical show

Although Russell Watson started singing as child, he worked hard to get where he is now, doing factory jobs by day while performing in working men's clubs by night.

It paid off, as his first album was at number one for a record-breaking 52 weeks.

Since then a devastating brain tumour put his career on hold - not once, but twice.

Now he says he feels back at his best, preparing to star in the musical Follies.
