Virgin Trains' Pavarotti Impersonator Sings For You (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

Until Luciano Pavarotti's death back in 2007, Colin Miller was a professional Pavarotti impersonator, with his career in wannabe warbling really kicking off back in 1990 when the larger-than-life tenor sang Nessun Dorma at the World Cup.

Now 61 years old, Mr. Miller's work as the operatic hero has dried up, and he's started working as a Virgin Trains station guard at Lichfield Trent Valley station, near to his home in Burton-upon-Trent.

Nicknamed, perhaps unsurprisingly, 'Pav' by colleagues and commuters alike, he now welcomes travellers with his interpretation of Nessun Dorma, with the occasional fan asking for a photograph - and even missing their train because of it.

To hear him do his thing, click play on the video above (courtesy of Express And Star), and when you're done with that, check out a few more snaps of the great man below.

P.S. Mr. Miller looks more like Luciano than he sounds like him. That's probably the nicest way of saying it...
