X Factor Exclusive: Proud Joe McElderry’s Proud Family Do Disney

Joe is a Disney character who waits until he’s buckled up in the backseat before wiping off granny’s lippy wet kiss. The X Factor is bit of fun, and Joe is about as fun as a wet tissue in a goldfish bowl.

In the Sun we get to meet Joe’s mum Eileen, a “social worker” – so instantly Sun readers hate her. Mum’s job is just another battle Joe must over come to achieve his dream. Dad Jim is a “probation officer”. Joe comes from a “deprived area of Tyneside”. Joe lives in a “cramped upstairs flat”.

Everywhere you go in Newcastle there are posters and messages declaring: “Go Joe!”

Cruel words. Joe needs to win and leave behind his cruel world.

His granny Hilda Joyce wants him to win:

“He has such a natural talent.”

Granny Joe is proud of him. In fact the pride is contagious:

Mum Joe: “I’m really proud people have got behind us.”
Joe: “I’m so proud of where I come from…”
Cheryl Cole: “I’m proud to be Geordie”

So. Joe wins the X Factor and get a job presenting a children’s telly show; Danyl Johnson, the best singer, goes to cut a record and do pretty well; Stacey Solomon enters the Guinness Book of world Records for the fastest breather in Pop; Olly Murs stars in kitchen tissues, sliding across the floor on a puddle of wee in his trademark jitter; and the public forget about it all in an instant…
