Lancashire Pizza Worker to "Star" in American Idol

Fame beckons for a pizza firm worker from Chorley who is to appear on American Idol as part of his company's sponsorship deal.

Technical auditor Chris Devlin, 36, who works for Schwan's in Leyland, who make Chicago Town Pizza, will feature alongside the ITV2 series in 10-second idents, which appear at the beginning, middle and end of each programme during the first four weeks of the show which began on Thursday, January 17.

Chris took part in open auditions held at the Leyland production plant before Christmas to find the most talented employees.

And his comedic skills which included performing a song with the voice of Donald Duck, won him a place on the show.

This series will be aired Thursday and Friday evenings on ITV2, with repeats over the weekend.
It sees contestants attend a series of auditions in the run up to the live final where the American Idol winner is announced.

As part of his prize, Chris and his partner were treated to an all expenses paid stay at Manchester's leading Lowry Hotel the night prior to filming to make sure they were relaxed and ready for their debut in front of the cameras.
