A Westlife super fan has described his shock at inadvertently stealing the show from his idols at one of their comeback concerts in Belfast.

Jordan McCaffery treated the packed house at the SSE Arena to a show of his own after being dared by his brother.

When the ‘Cha Cha Slide’ came over the PA before Westlife took the stage, Jordan’s brother Patrick urged him to dance along to it.

Jordan is well known among his friends and family for the routine, which he has perfected.

Patrick dared his brother to get the crowds attention with his dancing.

As Jordan began to show off his moves he attracted more and more attention until most of the crowd at the show turned to watch him and cheer him on.

Many concert goers filmed the dance routine on their phones and it has been circulated widely on social media following Thursday night’s concert.

Jordan said that what started as a joke, quickly turned into him putting on a show of his own.

“It was an unreal experience to perform in front of that many people, I didn’t realise how many people were watching me until halfway through the routine, half the crowd were turned around and cheering me on,” he said.

"So many people were filming it and putting it on Snapchat and social media, I have seen it from a lot of different angles."

Jordan, now 19, explained that he had been a fan of Westlife since he was a child and surprised his mother and brother with the tickets.

“I had been trying to get tickets and then I saw there were three available and I just went ahead and got them without telling anybody,” he said.

After Jordan recovered from his own performance, he enjoyed the show put on by Westlife.

“It was amazing to see them perform live, it was a great performance and a brilliant night,” he said.
