Whistling his way to stage success.

JONATHAN Ansell, previously lead vocalist in X Factor runners-up G4, will make his musical debut in Bill Kenwright's production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's Whistle Down the Wind.

The show's national tour opens at the Liverpool Empire on January 20.

Jonathan's dramatic rise to fame comes in the wake of three years of multi-million selling success with G4, but it is his solo achievements that have sent his career into orbit.

In February 2008, Jonathan's solo album, Tenor At The Movies, went straight to number one in the classical charts and top 10 in the pop charts, making him the youngest tenor to top the classical charts.

Whistle Down the Wind is based on the 1960s film starring Hayley Mills and Alan Bates, and features songs including Boyzone's No Matter What.

. Liverpool Empire, January 20-30. Tickets pounds 10.50-pounds 34 from 0844 847 2525 or www.liverpoolempire.org.uk
