Festival Place has the X factor

You may be mistaken for thinking you'd seen X factor winner Joe McElderry in Festival Place recently.

Sorry to let you down but its actually 24 year old Chris Ealden from Farnborough.

The look-a-like's just landed himself the job of body double. But he told Heart you won't be hearing him belting out any songs.

“My friends, family and work mates had all been telling me that I looked like Joe and persuaded me to send my photo to Spot on Entertainment I didn’t really expect to hear back from them with any work but I already have a couple of ‘gigs’ in the pipeline, although I promise I won’t be singing!”

And Chris reckons with the Geordie's success he'll appearing at a number of parties and proms over the coming months and years...he just needs to perfect the accent!
