The song reached number 3 in the UK Singles Chart in September 2001.

Currently unemployed, Ross is attending college and undertaking some work experience by helping out with a drama club in Spilsby.

Ross, who regularly post videos of himself singing on YouTube, said: “I was shaking and very nervous before auditioning, however once I got in there it wasn’t too overwhelming.”

“I’ve been singing for quite a few years now and I’d like to think I did the song justice,” he added.
