Collabro's Matt Pagan: From Carlisle Panto to Britain's Got Talent

One month ago, Matt Pagan formed a classical boyband with four people he met through social media.

After a few weeks rehearsing in a room above a pub in London, they faced the judges on Britain's Got Talent - and got a standing ovation.

The last time the 20-year-old from Carlisle was on stage was when he played Snow White's Prince in the city's Christmas Panto.

The audience last Saturday was considerably bigger.

And now the bookies are putting his band, Collabro, among the favourites for this year's competition.
