After visiting the family, eating more than enough turkey and polishing off the pud, settle down on Christmas Day and see if you can spot Connor Elliot on TV.

The ten-year-old, is one of the stars of the Christmas special of Gogglebox - GoggleSprogs, which will be showing at 8pm on Channel 4.

Connor, from Wakefield Road, Drighlington, said: “My mum sent off my details to appear as one of the children to appear in the one-off show.

“I was successful and will be featuring in the show along with my friend, making our Christmas Day 2015 very memorable.”

Connor, who attends Frobelian School, is no stranger to the stage and screen.

The schoolboy took centre stage in 2013 opposite Jason Donovan, playing the part of Benji, the son of Donovan’s character Anthony ‘Tick’ in the hit musical Pricialla Queen of the Desert.

He also spent the beginning of the summer holidays performing in The Tale of Mr Timble, alongside Justin Fletcher.

Connor said: “I was cast as Boy Tumble which was part of the Manchester’s International Festival live at the Manchester Opera House.

“It was totally amazing and I got to keep my red shiny Doc Martins which were part of my costume.

Connor attends Scala School of Performing Arts every week and says he really enjoys performing.

He said: “I have just recently passed by Grade Two in singing and it’s getting so close to my piano exam in January.

“I am also rehearsing weekly for Upstagers production of Peter Pan, in which I am playing one of the Lost Boys at the Kings Hall Theatre at the end of January.

“It involves a lot of dance routines.”

Connor is also working had in passing his entrance exam to his first choice school - Bradford Grammar School.
