Kettering singing sensation Faryl Smith will grace the Twickenham turf once more this weekend.

Faryl, who shot to fame in Britain’s Got Talent’s 2008 series, will return to the home of English rugby having performed there in March.

The 24-year-old will sing both the English and Welsh national anthems, as well as Jerusalem, ahead of the summer international between the two nations on Sunday (August 11).

She has had a helping hand in learning the Welsh anthem from her grandfather, who is Welsh.

Faryl said: "I am very excited to be returning back to perform at Twickenham.

"My Welsh side of the family are also looking forward to hearing me sing their anthem!"

Later this month (August 24) she will take to the stage at Twickenham again when England play Ireland. She will sing both anthems and Jerusalem again.

Both matches will be aired on Sky Sports.

In recent months Faryl performed at the polo clash between England and Argentina in Windsor.

She has also been awarded a financial prize and is being flown to Germany by the Guildhall School of Music for a four-day masterclass where she has to learn 15 German songs before she arrives.

Her father Tony said: "This a tremendous achievement with all the other outside work she manages to do.

"We don’t know how she keeps it all up!"

When Faryl broke through on Britain's Got Talent music mogul Simon Cowell said: "She is by far the most talented youngster I've ever heard.

"When she opens her mouth her voice is just incredible."

Producers from the hit show had asked her to participate in Britain's Got Talent: The Champions - an all-star edition featuring some of the best acts since the series began - which starts later this month.

However Faryl declined because of other commitments.
