Members of a Whaley Bridge family are getting more than their 15 minutes of fame after appearing in the Royal Variety show and a TV advert.

The Powner family are currently all over our TV screens - with son Logan appearing in The Royal Variety Performance and the entire family starring in an advert for the Co-op.

All four of the Powners’ children are in modelling agencies and when 12 year-old Logan was selected for the Royal Variety Performance the family was ecstatic - but having the chance to appear as a family on a TV advert was the icing on the cake.

Mum Helen, 45, of Hill Drive, said: “It was an absolutely brilliant experience - we all had such a laugh.

“Our neighbours are all having a good laugh about it as well.

“We all just enjoyed ourselves - there wasn’t really any acting involved.”

In the TV advert the family appear together in a typical Christmas scene - with mum Helen in the foreground popping some champagne.

But the family is more excited about Logan’s appearance in the annual end-of-year British spectacular.

Logan, who attends St Thomas More Catholic School, appeared as a mini-Piers Morgan in a send-up of ITV show Britain’s Got Talent.

And on the night the talented youngster was able not only to watch Robbie Williams perform from backstage but he also had a quick chat with Lady Gaga.

Mum Helen said: “Logan absolutely loves performing, but he is very outgoing and has a great memory so he remembers his lines well.”

The talented 12-year-old has also appeared as an extra in Alice Through The Looking Glass previously.
