After a fallow period for opinion-issuance, Gennaro Castaldo is back, spreading his mind-thoughts on the prospect of one man punchline Chico's solo single:

"There's been a growing feeling that Chico was leaving it a bit late to release a single following his X-Factor success, especially as Chantelle and Celebrity Big Brother have stolen the limelight in recent months.

"However, this first day sales performance shows that there is still a lot of interest in his rather engaging brand of entertainment.

"His challenge now is to show that he's more than just a one-trick novelty act and that he has the talent and personality to fashion a successful pop career."

Actually, Gennaro, his challenge is probably to show that he can actually muster a single trick. Let's not set him the task of trying to do anything more demanding like pretending to be a real popstar.
