Britain's Got Talent finalists Only Boys Aloud are gearing up for the release of their latest album - we spoke to founder Tim Rhys Evans, and two choir members, Ben Bateman and Ifan Jenkin.

A vibrant social scene and choir rehearsals in rugby clubs? Founder of Only Men Aloud and Only Boys Aloud Tim Rhys Evans is transforming the choral landscape of Wales with his innovative ideas for choirs.

Their debut album, which is out in November, features yet more innovations: it's a mix of traditional Welsh choral music and modern choral interpretations of music by Coldplay and Take That.

Baritone Ifan Jenkin said: "It's great to be spending your time doing things like this, rather than sitting in the house on your X-box."

Ben Bateman said: "I went to the first rehearsal, and it's the best thing I've ever done!"
