Hannah, 14, stood out above a quality field at the Grand Theatre thanks to a heavenly rendition of a song she’d written herself.

Afterwards, her proud mum Helen said: “She’s loved music all her life and has written around 200 songs, and another 300 which are unfinished.

“She’s self-taught on the guitar but she doesn’t realise how good she is. This has given her a lot of confidence.”

Hannah, from Chorley, beat a local duet with a difference into second place.
