Paul Potts has been a fixture on the UK music scene he performed Puccini's "Nessun Dorma" on Britain's Got Talent in 2007 - and won the competition in the process.
Now, after a nearly a decade of touring the world, the tenor is gearing up first professional opera.
He will perform the role of Cavaradossi in Tosca at Chiswick House, which of course also means he will be performing Puccini once more. Potts told London Live's Luke Blackall about his love for the composer.
Tosca is at Chiswick House on 15th and 16th June as part of the Summer Sessions.
