Homecoming for X Factor’s George Shelley?

TEENAGE X Factor star George Shelley and his band Union J could be visiting Clevedon next week if they make it through to the show’s grand final.

The former Weston College student and the band found themselves in the bottom two for the third time last Sunday and went head to head with Essex boy Rylan Clark.

But Union J were saved by the judges – with three votes to one - after their cover of Snow Patrol’s Chasing Cars.

This weekend 19-year-old George, of Clevedon, and his band mates will sing for their place in the final and battle it out against James Arthur, Jahmene Douglas and Christopher Maloney.

If Union J gain enough votes from the public and make it to the final stage of the popular ITV1 show they will make a visit to each of their hometowns for a special performance.
