A pensioner from Norwich has made history in the UK music charts after his debut album made the top 20.

89 year old Colin Thackery, who is a Royal Chelsea Pensioner, shot to fame when he won Britain's Got Talent this year.

He became the oldest singer ever to sign a record deal and now his debut album 'Love Changes Everything' has reached number 13 in the Official UK Albums Chart.

It means his album is sitting alongside the likes of Rod Stewart, Kylie and Suffolk's very own Ed Sheeran in the charts.
