A Scottish teenager has appeared as a support act for music legend Sir Elton John at the Falkirk Football Stadium.

Tallia Storm, 13, was asked by the singer to open the only Scottish date on his UK tour after she handed her CD to his partner, David Furnish.

Sir Elton called her mobile and said he was excited about her music.

After the concert on Sunday, Tallia tweeted: "Hanging out with Sir Elton in his amazing dressing room."

She added: "He is just the coolest guy ever. Am I dreaming lol?"

Soul singer Tallia spotted Mr Furnish when she was on holiday abroad at Christmas and gave him a letter and CD to pass on to Sir Elton.

The singer called her the following day.

When her performance with Sir Elton was first announced, the 13-year-old, from Killearn in Stirling, said: "I don't actually think I will take it all in until I am standing on his stage at Falkirk - someone will have to pinch me for sure."
