A TEENAGE pop music fan from Boston got to meet two of her idols after winning a radio competition.

Charlotte Smith, 15, met members of Irish band The Script after taking part in an on-air music challenge with Lincs FM.

“It was amazing,” said Charlotte, of Windsor Terrace, who met Danny O’Donoghue, known also for his role on BBC’s The Voice TV show, and fellow band member Mark Sheehan.

“I went to the studio with my mum and we got to sit in on their radio interview and hang around with them, then afterwards we got to meet them, and have photos taken with them.”

She added: “My brother Mark is a massive fan of The Script so I made sure I got an autograph for him too.”

To win the competition, the ex-Haven High School pupil had to guess which were songs by The Script out of eight Irish tracks played by DJ Rob Hammond.
