Paul Potts' School Hell

Paul Potts is hoping his story can inspire victims of bullying.

The star who lives in Port Talbot, was catapulted into the limelight after winning Britain's Got Talent in 2008. He was manager at mobile phone store Carphone Warehouse in Bridgend at the time.

Since then he has recorded numerous albums, been on tour and had his life story told on the big screen. James Corden played Potts in the movie One Chance in 2013.

The YouTube video clip of him performing Nessun Dorma on BGT has had more than 120 million views, making it one of the top 100 most watched YouTube videos.

Paul took time out of his busy schedule promoting his latest album Home, to talk to our reporter Emma Grant about his childhood.
