X Factor star gives interview tips
Ray Quinn
Ray Quinn gave future reporters valuable advice
X Factor finalist Ray Quinn let School Reporters in on how to get the best out of celebrity interviews when he visited the Bosco City Learning Centre in Liverpool.

His advice for getting those elusive star scoops? ¿Come across really nice, then we'll tell you more.¿

Quinn also spoke about taking part in Sport Relief, saying: ¿Everyone comes together to raise money for a good cause. It's great to be involved.¿

He's been putting in some practice and is confident that he'll be able to complete the Sport Relief mile on Sunday. He said: ¿I'll be there, jogging along and keeping myself fit.¿

However, he admitted that his interest in sport doesn't stretch to football. When asked about Wednesday's Everton match, he revealed he was more into singing than following the beautiful game.

Quinn first found fame in the Channel Four soap opera Brookside and went on to be runner-up in the third series of TV talent show X Factor, and has since released his debut album.
