Video: Watch out 2016! Frostbit boy Ruairi McSorley shares his plans for the New Year...including a play


The Northern Ireland teenager who became an overnight star on the internet for his outlandish country accent is releasing a song called The Girl For Me on January 13.

It's now a year since Ruairi McSorley, aka Frostbit boy, was interviewed on UTV News about the snow in his home area in the Sperrins, famously remarking: "Oh God you wouldn't be long getting frostbit."

The clip was frantically shared on social media and within days had clocked up a staggering four million views.

Speaking to the Belfast Telegraph outside his home yesterday, Ruairi reflected on a whirlwind 2015.

"2015, God it all really just fell in," he said.

"I said it was coul' over there just at the bus stop and from January on my jaw's just sore smilin. Just flat-out selfie-ing, shakin' hands, goin' to this, that and thon. Doin everythin' on the television, wireless, everythin'."

Looking forward to 2016 he says he has high hopes to showcase not only his musical talents, but to launch a touring play.

"We've this song comin' out now, and if this song goes alright there'll be talk of a while more of that alright.

"And there's talks as well now that there might be a kinda, you know that there might be a carry on play sort of thing as well."
