He appeared in The Only Way Is Essex in January 2014 and featured on Britain’s Got Talent as a contestant in April 2015.

The care home also had performances from local singer Stacey Turner and school group Shine.

The £1,050 raised will go towards day trips and events for the residents.

Manager Mary Latter said: “It was a real treat to have Paul perform for our residents and their families while we celebrated in the sunny weather.”
