Life-changing night for Carlisle's Collabro star

Barely 36 hours after winning the UK’s biggest television talent show and life is almost unrecognisable for Carlisle's Matthew Pagan.

The members of five-piece musical theatre boyband Collabro are still adjusting to their win, as it emerged that the group received more than 25 per cent of the votes for all 11 acts.

Matthew’s parents, Linda and Tony Pagan, had travelled to London to watch Saturday’s Britain’s Got Talent final live.

Speaking to the News & Star, they admitted they were still trying to come to terms with their son’s new-found fame.

“We saw him on Saturday night for a little while,” Linda said. “He and the other band members are trying to take it all in. They’re on cloud nine.”

The group is doing the rounds with national media television and radio stations this week, beginning with Good Morning Britain today.
