A DISABLED Govan schoolboy has been revealed as the star of TV giant Sky's latest blockbuster advert. 

Harris Tinney, 12, stars in the advert alongside Marvel superhero Iron Man, Transformers' Megatron and Star Wars character BB8. 

He said: "I was really excited to star in such an awesome TV advert. 

"I never imagined that I’d be on the TV with Ironman, BB-8, Megatron and Spot from Boston Dynamics. 

"I love the story and I can’t wait for my friends and family to see what I’ve done.”

The Govan High School pupil had his leg amputated at just five days old, after his parents were told that there was a possibility that Harris would not be able to walk.

His mum, Lisa Tinney, said: "We are so proud of what Harris has done. I can't believe the reaction that we have had from people already, it has been so overwhelming. 

"We have always supported Harris and from being told that he might not be able to walk to him doing this, we are so proud of him.

"We were sent out to Barcelona to shoot and Sky were great with Harris. He even had his own chaperone because of Covid and he kept joking that he had his own bodyguard!"

Harris is also a keen footballer and has even had the backing from Rangers stars such as Steven Davis, Ally McCoist and ex-player Greg Docherty. 

Lisa said: "He plays both mainstream and amputee football and it meant so much to him to have them get in touch. 

"It was right at the start of lockdown and he did a skills video on social media and they sent really lovely messages 

"He is such a kind boy and so welcoming to others. I think that it means a lot to be able to show off his leg and not hide it, because it shows other kids not to be ashamed of their disability."

Wayne Laws, from disability equality charity Scope, said: “There are over 14 million disabled people in the country, that’s one in five of us, yet disability still remains hugely underrepresented on our screens and in the media. 

"More disabled people should be working across a variety of industries, including advertising and the creative."
