A teenager from Glasgow has been announced as the latest member of BBC's Surprise Squad for Children in Need. 

Dylan, 18, will be part of the team which visits various surprise locations throughout the country in a fundraising challenge to complete Children in Need-funded projects. 

The surprise projects, which will aim to boost local communities, will be shown every evening on The One Show at 7pm between November 15 and November 18. 

Dylan, who has autism, is one of five inspirational young people who have been selected to join the squad. He is dedicated to raising awareness for MDP syndrome, which he was diagnosed with at age 10. 

Dylan said: “I have spent my life raising awareness for my condition with school friends and my wider community.  I’m really looking forward to being able to share my story with The One Show viewers. I hope I can help to raise money that will go on to support other young people like me.”

Famous faces involved include One Show presenter Alex Jones, former footballer Jermaine Jenas and Boyzone star Ronan Keating.Glasgow Times:

Ronan spoke of his anticipation at the upcoming fundraiser: “We’re so excited to be delivering these surprises for worthy organisations across the country. We hope that these surprises will make a huge difference to those receiving them and we can’t wait to bring the audience along to see what the Surprise Squad get up to!”
