An 8-year-old boy from Connah's Quay has been keeping his neighbours entertained by impersonating one of his musical idols during lockdown.

During the day Harrison Catherall is himself, but every Thursday after the nation has clapped for the NHS, he transforms into music legend Freddie Mercury.

After putting on a leather jacket, dying his hair black and applying a fake moustache, Harrison is ready to impersonate one of his favourite performers.

When asked about his 'fan club', mainly made up of neighbours on the road as well as some online, Harrison blushed "it is pretty cool".

His performances have formed part of the routine on the street, with one neighbour's recording of Harrison receiving thousands of likes and views on Facebook.

"We had heard him singing the songs throughout the house but it definitely caught us by surprise a little bit," Liz continued.

"It a started when he watched the new film about Freddie and then he started doing little impersonations and the neighbours love it.

"We had a comment from someone online that was watching from Australia, Harrison was in shock."
