Execs at Niggle Productions are thrilled when teen sensation Ronan Stingmore is crowned winner of the hugely successful TV talent shoe: ‘Sing for you Supper’. He had the looks, the talent, but above all the perfect back story, around which a media frenzy (and a great deal of cash) can be whipped up. It’s all Ronan has ever dreamed of doing: a chance to write and perform his own music, to live the celebrity lifestyle and be loved by millions of adoring fans around the world. But with pressure form Niggle mounting daily, and an increasing number of sacrifices bering demanded of him, Ronan must assess whether being famous is all it’s cracked up to be, and just how far he’s willing to go in order to achieve his dream of becoming the worlds biggest pop star.
