A music insider said: "Richard really was the surprise hit of the show. He has the potential to be a major recording star."

Here’s what the Manchester Evening News has to say:

CORONATION Street heart-throb Richard Fleeshman has been named Soapstar Superstar after beating friend and Corrie colleague Andrew Whyment in the final of the ITV celebrity talent show.

And Richard had more than just one reason to celebrate.

He thought that he was walking away with £50,000 for The Kirsty Howard Appeal for Francis House but that figure was doubled.

Thousands of fans voted for him over the course of the evening, but when the announcement was made, Richard looked utterly gobsmacked.

Despite being tipped as the potential champion following his first performance, Richard's feet remained firmly on the ground and he was always quick to praise his fellow competitors.

He said: "It was an absolute honour to be up against Andy.

"He's such a nice guy, a genuinely nice guy."

"It's amazing. It's all been worthwhile, it's just amazing."

Having already won the title Richard celebrated by singing 'Moondance'.
