Cotmanhay boy William Smedley meets his pop idol Olly Murs

Singing along to Olly Murs songs has helped William improve his speech and communication.
Olly was moved to hear William’s story when he met him and mum Jemma in Nottingham recently.
William, who has autism, a significant learning disability and epilepsy, became a Twitter ‘star’ himself when he appeared on a video singing ‘Grow Up’.
He was thrilled to meet his favourite singer and described it as a dream come true.
