There's something crushing about Joe McElderly's CV as detailed by the Lincolnshire Echo:
Joe rose to fame when he won the sixth series of the ITV show The X Factor in 2009 and he returned to TV screens in 2011 where he was the winner of the second series of the ITV show Pop Star to Opera Star.While, obviously, there's a question about how long you can only ever appear on TV in celebrity game shows and still count as a celebrity, you've got to admire Joe's winning streak. Obviously not in music, as he's playing the Skegness Embassy, but that could be the point.
Most recently the star appeared in Channel 4's latest reality show The Jump where he triumphed over journalist Donal MacIntyre in the live final.
Perhaps he should stop worrying about the music altogether, and just fill up his time bouncing from Splash to Celebrity Pointless to that one which is a bit like Bargain Hunt but isn't, only with celebrities. He seems to be good at that sort of thing.
