SHIRLEY schoolboy Matthew Wan recently landed a starring role in a HSBC TV advert.

The five-year-old was picked from over 100 youngsters to appear in the bank’s ad - which started showing last week.

Set during Chinese New Year celebrations, the commercial is voiced by veteran actor Michael Gambon.

Filming took place in London over two days, with Matthew, a St Alphege CofE Infants pupil, getting his first taste of stardom.

Mum Ivy said: “I’m really proud of him but it’s a very competitive business, so we’ll have to see what happens.”
