As we head towards the final of the X-Factor, barring a major upset it is looking increasingly likely that young Joe McElderry will next winner of the TV talent competition.

BBC Tyneside's Kristie Kinghorn has gone back to Joe's hometown of South Shields to speak to his mum Eileen Joyce on what she thinks about her son's new found fame.

Eileen is understandably proud remarking in the interview "I'm dead proud of him. He has never done a singing lesson and his voice is totally natural. I knew he could do it."

She tells Kristie how she had to persuade him to audition again for the X-Factor after having been previously rejected, talks about the rapport between Joe and his mentor Cheryl Cole and how Joe's success has helped her in job as the head of the behavioural unit at the local college.
