Britain's Got Talent stars Bars and Melody meet fans in Cardiff

Thousands of excited fans lined the streets of Cardiff today to meet Britain's Got Talent finalists Bars and Melody.

Port Talbot rapper Leondre Devries, 13, and 15-year-old Charlie Lenehan, from Bristol, have just released their debut single 'Hopeful'.

The song has a strong anti-bullying message, with Leondre calling upon his own experiences in school.

Today youngsters queuing outside HMV on Queen Street told ITV Cymru Wales they admired Bars and Melody's stance on bullying.

I live in Port Talbot as well... I've been bullied at three schools and they've just helped me become stronger, knowing they've been through it - and look where they are now.
