ITV Pop Idol's Will Young has recorded a special video for Barrow ahead of his autumn show. 

The multi-award winning singer will be performing in the town in September as part of a 50-date UK tour.

Speaking as part of the promotion of his 2024 Light It Up Live tour, Young said he 'wanted to go to smaller venues' so he 'could properly get around the country.'

Now, he's recorded a special video addressing his Barrovians fans as tickets went on sale on Friday.

In the video, which was posted on the Forum Theatre Facebook page, he said: "Hello, I'm Will Young. I'm coming to Barrow in Furness at the Forum on September the seventh. 

"Come and see me - it's a great show."

His tour will run from September to November with each date promising 'an intimate evening of acoustic performances, stories and conversation.'

The star is finally back after two years with his new single, Falling Deep, which was released on April 18.

He came to prominence after winning the very first 2002 series of Pop Idol - which made him the first-ever winner of the worldwide Idol franchise beating Gareth Gates to the top spot.

The star will be coming to the Forum Theatre on September 7.
