Here’s Johnny…

Clockwise from top, Johnny Flynn drunk at Christmas, with younger sister Lillie who sings in Johnny’s band, with Lillie and their nan, having open heart surgery on Holby City

There’s good posh (Stephen Fry) and there’s bad posh (Paris Hilton), but thankfullyJOHNNY FLYNN seems to be something of a lovable rogue.

Born in South Africa and brought up in Britain, the 24-year-old has already made a remarkable number of career moves for a man so young: Shakespearian thespian, check… Holby City bit-part actor, check… voice-overs for IKEA, check.

More recently, though, he has reinvented himself as a thoroughly talented and accessible folk-pop musician with his four-strong backing band The Sussex Wit, which includes the sweet harmonies of his younger sister Lillie.

Together they have already created their fair share of toe-tapping songs to savour and that would strongly suggest Johnny’s forthcoming debut album A Larum (released on May 26) might well turn out to be one of the year’s best. Good job, young chap.
