X-Factor star James Wilson tells Pudsey youngsters: ‘Follow your dreams’


We had a great start to the term for the opening night at Pudsey Friday Night Project with our local X-Factor star James Wilson paying us a visit, writes LAURA HOBMAN.

He brought his guitar and sang us a couple of songs followed by a question and answer session with the club members, who had some fantastic questions to ask, including; “What advice would you give to the young people of Pudsey?”.

James wanted to inspire the local young people of Pudsey to follow their dreams and not to worry about what other people think. This was followed by a photo and signing session.
