The eighth and last spot on a BBC talent show to find an Oliver for a west end production of the musical was given to Jonny.

The 13-year-old, from Warwickshire, will join seven other hopefuls on Saturday's I'd Do Anything.

Three boys will have their dreams come true when they are given the title role to share.

The boys have been learning about acting and singing from top experts, including Lord Lloyd-Webber.
