BARNSLEY actor Shaun Dooley is celebrating after receiving the news that his charity album has gone silver.

More than 60,000 copies of the album Got It Covered have been sold since the album went on sale in November. The album features a selection of covers from celebrities including Luke Evans, Olivia Colman and Suranne Jones who all picked a song that is meaningful to them.

The album was recorded in the famous Abbey Road Studios in London and Shaun was even visited by Taylor Swift while he was recording his cover of her song Never Grow Up.

On its release, Got It Covered shot to the top of the charts before being moved to the Official Compilation Chart where it currently occupies position 17, and Shaun has since released his song as a single which is currently vying for the position of Christmas number one.

The accolades keep coming as it was announced that the album has achieved a silver record with all proceeds from sales going to Children in Need.
