Carpool karaoke star Ted, 80, lands record deal

An 80-year-old man who became an internet star when his son posted videos of him singing in the car, has landed a record deal.

Former Butlin's Redcoat Ted McDermott, who was diagnosed with dementia in 2013, spent decades entertaining people.

Decca Records signed him up after videos of his carpool karaoke were watched 40 million times on YouTube.

His son Simon told the World at One's Mark Mardell how the idea came to him after a stressful day.
