We love Callum Scott Howells in It's A Sin - so to see him happy, healthy and singing his heart out on TV warms our cockles - even if it was back in 2017.

The actor can be seen showing off his vocals to Gary Barlow while auditioning for the Take That star’s talent show Let It Shine. 

The Welsh star was loved by the judges including Gary, Amber Riley, Martin Kemp and Dannii Minogue.

Callum raised the roof with a Hamilton track You’ll Be Back and made it through to the next stage of the competition and eventually got down to the last 40 hopefuls. 

But it wasn't his time to Shine as he dropped out before a big performance with the Kaiser Chiefs after bagging a role in a revival of musical She Loves Me in London's West End. 

You'll probably know him better for playing the adorable Colin in Channel 4's hit drama It's A Sin as the young gay Welsh lad experiencing life, love and loss during the Aids epidemic in the 80s.

Viewers have been left rocked by the drama and in tears watching the powerful LGBT drama.
