McFLY’s Tom Fletcher has released the stunning music video to accompany the release of The Musical Edition of his hit novel ‘The Christmasaurus’.

The tear-jerking picture released yesterday is based on the true story of teenager Lily Rice, who is the first European female to perform a backflip in a wheelchair.

Lily, who stars in the video alongside pop singer Tom, has a condition called hereditary spastic paraplegia which causes muscle rigidity.

Yet she was able to achieve the feat in Cariff after six hours’ practice.

The video is set to his track Afraid Of Heights, one of 14 new songs culled from his CD The Christmasaurus, the musical edition of his debut novel of the same name.

All written and performed by Tom, they are accompanied by a full orchestra and include surprise solos from Giovanna Fletcher – Tom’s wife – and Carrie Hope-Fletcher, his sister.

The Christmasaurus is also set for a stage show at London’s Eventim Apollo for a limited run from December 21 – 28.

Harry Judd, Matt Willis, Giovanna, and Carriewill are all set to appear alongside Tom on-stage in the festive spectacular.

The Christmasaurus is also being turned into an animated feature film directed by Michael Gracey, who recently directed the film The Greatest Showman On Earth starring Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron and Michelle Williams.

Tom remains a guitarist on McFly.
