A 13-year-old singer has been named the Isle of Man's Next Big Thing 2015 after winning the competition at the Gaiety Theatre.

Jenny Hill won the title after performing Wishing You Were Somehow Here from Phantom of the Opera.

Former singer and Coronation Street actress Kym Marsh helped judge the annual competition in Douglas.

In the run-up to the final, 130 acts were auditioned with 15 chosen to perform on the night.

The competition is part of the island's annual Junior Achievement talent contest.

Chief Executive Sue Cook said the standard was "extremely high" and the acts created a "very special atmosphere."
