A singing trio discovered in their school choirs have landed a £500,000 deal with Universal Classics.

The Choirboys, described as a mini version of the Three Tenors, are being guided by their co-manager - the Welsh former choirboy star Aled Jones.

CJ Porter-Thaw, 11, and Patrick Aspbury and Ben Inman, both 12, spent the summer recording their debut album.

It includes both choral music like Ave Maria and interpretations of rock tunes such as Eric Clapton's Tears In Heaven.
