Bio

Paul Manners (born February 25, 1984), is an English singer, songwriter, keyboardist, producer, sound engineer host and DJ. Born in Northwick Park Hospital, Brent and raised in Harrow (London, United Kingdom), Paul primarily studied at Park High School and attended Thames Valley University. His first and middle school was St. John's Church of England in Stanmore.

In January 2014 Paul had appeared on 'The Only Way Is Essex' on ITV 2, gaining the support of Gemma Collins. He was already supported by good friends James Locke and Daniel Osborne, of which he met through twitter and taking part in celebrity football matches for various charities. In September 2014, Paul provided the entertainment alongside Chris Andre at Danny & Sunny Andre's wedding in Cyprus; resulting being mentioned in October's edition of OK! Magazine and gaining wonderful support/friendship with the entire Andre family, including Peter Andre.

He was featured on Britain's Got Talent as a contestant which was aired on Saturday 25th April 2015, ITV 1 performing "Hold You In My Arms". During the performance he famously forgot his own words but ended with a standing ovation; bringing back the phrase "whoop whoop". He received three yeses (from David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden) and won a record deal with David Walliams; but did not get past the next round into the semi-finals. 11.9 million people tuned in to watch this episode, which overtook Eastenders: Live as the most watched television programme. Being drafted as the reserve act for the finals to include signing a pre-contract with Syco/Sony, Paul attended live rehearsals at Thames Television headquarters in London. Since not reaching the finals, a massive uproar was introduced by fans as the show was not the same without him. This was explained by Paul in many interviews. In May, Peter Andre has written an article in New! Magazine stating "Yes, I'm a fan".

In 2016 Paul became a celebrity patron of 'Stacey's Smiles', in memory of Stacey Mowle. On the 3rd May saw his appearance alongside his father, Derek on ITV's Judge Rinder; gaining the support of The Sun newspaper.

He has helped raise thousands of pounds for numerous charities and continues to be an established favourite to the public.

Announced via twitter on Tuesday 25th July 2017, Paul had landed the part of Simon in the upcoming film Dead Ringer which is due to be released in 2018.
