Britain’s Got Talent finalist Sam Kelly returned to his roots this afternoon to open a fete at a school in Spixworth, near where he grew up.
The singer-songwriter, who shot to prominence earlier this year on the hit ITV1 talent show, was guest of honour at the Spixworth Infant School Summer Fete this afternoon.
Families flocked to the Ivy Road school to see the 19-year-old who was cheered by admiring female fans as he cut the ribbon to open the event which featured stalls, a bouncy castle, Zumba, football and other fun activities for all the family.
Sam, who lives in Brighton but is spending the summer at nearby Frettenham, said it was great to be invited back to an area that had so many happy memories for him.
The teenager, who attended Woodland View Junior School in the village, said: “It’s brilliant. I’m from the village so it’s great to just come today and do this - I’m glad I was free to do it.”
