The Blackpool frontman of pop stars Rixton has told of his delight after the band stormed to the top of the singles chart with their first record - a moment that will be forever etched in their memories and on their skin after promising fans to mark the occasion with a tattoo.
Jake Roche, with bandmates Charley Bagnall on guitar, Danny Wilkin on bass and keyboard and Lewi Morgan on drums, will each get an inking of a broken heart after learning their pop song Me And My Broken Heart reached number one last night.
While Jake is getting his on his bicep and Charley’s will be etched on his rib, a nervous Lewi will get his marking on his thumb, while Danny hopes to hide his from his parents by having it done on his thigh.
Jake, who lived in Blackpool between the ages of 10 and 16 and is the son of singer and actor Shane Ritchie and The Nolans singer Coleen Nolan, told OfficialCharts.com: “Being Number One is probably the biggest thing ever that has happened to us in our lives.
“And it means a lot because it’s in our home country, and that’s something that’s been the main goal for us, to really make an impact. It’s a dream. Thank you to everyone who has bought it for your support.”
