Greenhithe’s own Tyron Makotore will be once again aired to millions this weekend, during the X Factor’s live final.

Nine-year-old Tyron first appeared in the “Bopheads” music video with his rendition of Return of the Mack by Mark Morrison, back in September.

He has been selected as one of the best of the music videos, which are produced by programme sponsor’s TalkTalk TV.

On hearing the news, he said: “I am very excited to appear on the X Factor and I will be watching at home on Saturday night.

“I decided to do a BopHeads video because I thought it would be fun and now I am very proud to be representing my community on television.”
