A TEENAGER from Wilthorpe wowed people on his unicycle at the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games.

Steven Walker, 19, performed in front of 45,000 people in the opening sequence of the ceremony at Celtic Park with other dancers as Karen Dunbar and John Barrowman performed.

The ceremony on Wednesday was watched on television by about two million people.

Stephen's role included a scene where he let off the one o'clock cannon at Edinburgh Castle.
