X FACTOR winner Leon Jackson is to perform at this year's annual Meadowbank firework display.

The event, being hosted by radio presenters Robin Galloway and Cat Harvey, will feature a performance by the Whitburn-born singer, who has just released his first album.

Cat Harvey said: "Robin and I are really excited about bringing Leon Jackson to Meadowbank's firework display. I think the atmosphere will be amazing in front of his home crowd."

Tickets are now on sale for the event, being held on November 5, and the evening starts at 6.30pm, with the fireworks kicking off at 7.30pm.

For the 19-year-old star, who now lives in London, the appearance will be extra special, as he recently joined the campaign to save Meadowbank Stadium.

The star, who is a black belt, revealed it was where he learned karate, and said he "could not live without" Meadowbank, Edinburgh Castle and Princes Street.
