HE WAS tubby. He was teased. He was taken to hos­pi­tal again and again. Any­thing else? Yeah. He could sing. Pipes of a true tenor. The kind of voice that puts mist in eyes, lumps in throats and gags in mouths of those who say they don’t do opera. You’d swear this reads like the back­ground pro­file of a TV tal­ent show con­tes­tant. Oh, hang on minute, this is in­deed the story of a TV tal­ent show con­tes­tant. Here’s the feel­good, against- all- odds tale of how Paul Potts ( played by James Cor­den) took out the 2007 se­ries of Bri­tain’s Got Tal­ent. The Poms just couldn’t re­sist get­ting be­hind this over­weight un­der­dog. You just might feel the same way too. Co- stars Colm Meaney, Julie Wal­ters.
