X FACTOR and Popstar to Operastar champ Joe McElderry could see a lot of changes in the year ahead if he sticks to his resolution.

The 22-year-old, from Westoe, South Shields, said: Im going to try to stop drinking as much Diet Coke as I do, and I want to do 10 things that Ive never done before.

Joe with pic in the daily mail, not the most positive article though...

Council blew nearly 300,000 on free celebrity concerts... then refuse to say how much each artist was paid
A council spent nearly 300,000 hiring celebrities to perform at free concerts in just over three years, figures have revealed.
South Tyneside Council paid X-Factor 'stars' Stacey Solomon, Joe McElderry, Little Mix, Gareth Gates, Matt Cardle and Little Mix to appear at the annual event.
Critics said the day-long parties are of dubious benefit to the area - at a time when other council-run services are cut back.

The authority has axed 1,200 jobs and been forced to make 48million of savings since 2010 - but the taxpayer-funded knees up has escaped the chop.
The council hosts the free Bent Park Sunday Concert each year in an effort to boost tourism.

The authority refused to give a full breakdown of how much each act was paid and claimed it was 'confidential' and 'personal data'.
MailOnline explained to them that other councils had released the data in full and had not claimed it could be kept secret.
Maurice Frankel, director of the Campaign for Freedom of Information, said: 'For a council in that part of the world to be spending that kind of money is conspicuous.
'They may try and argue that spending that money on concerts will cheer people up. The key issue is accountability for spending public money.'
The council spent 54,850 on hiring celebrities in 2010, 48,950 in 2011, 51,000 in 2012 and 130,800 this year.
Although they released a full list of names of everyone who was paid to show up - they did not give a breakdown of the fees.
A spokesman for the council said: 'The Council stages a hugely popular summer festival, attracting around 100,000 visitors to our borough every year.
'Tourism supports thousands of jobs in South Tyneside, and visitors to our seafront festival spent an estimated 1.3million with local businesses last year alone.
'It would not be appropriate to publish details of the fees paid to individual performers. If the Council published details of a commercial agreement that we have been able to secure at an exceptional rate, it will affect future negotiations and earnings elsewhere for the artists and therefore make performers in general less willing to agree to special deals.'


Council denies free summer shows are a waste of money
