THE com­mu­nity of Manor Kilbride ex­tended a warm and sin­cere wel­come home to X Fac­tor star and lo­cal lad Jack Tis­dall fol­low­ing a stel­lar per­for­mance on the hit UK tele­vi­sion tal­ent show.

Son of Paul and Char­lotte Tis­dall, Jack took part in the con­test with the boy band United Vibe and made it all the way to the live shows.

The parish hall in Manor Kilbride was packed to ca­pac­ity at the week­end as Jack re­turned to his home vil­lage to a hero’s wel­come.

He was thrilled to see such a great turnout and to have the op­por­tu­nity to thank his friends and neigh­bours for all their sup­port.

‘Every­body came out to wel­come Jack and he was over­whelmed by it. He was re­ally happy to chat to ev­ery­one and to thank them for cheer­ing him on. It was lovely for him to have the chance to catch up,’ his mum Char­lotte said.

His new fan base was also in for a treat as Jack took to the stage for an ex­clu­sive live per­for­mance.

Jack’s visit home was short and sweet how­ever as he is due to soon re­turn to the UK to com­plete his X Fac­tor obli­ga­tions.

‘It’s very ex­cit­ing and there is loads in the pipe­line,’ Char­lotte said.
