CHRISTMAS could come early for fans of X Factor winner Joe McElderry... thanks to your Chronicle!

The South Shields singer will make a return trip to the North East next month for a very special gala screening of the festive season's biggest movie - The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. We've teamed up with the Metrocentre to give 20 lucky readers a chance to see Joe and the film, before it's even released in the UK's cinemas.

We revealed a few weeks ago how Joe had been picked to sing the soundtrack to the new Narnia adventure after he was approached by movie giant 20th Century Fox.

The song, called There's A Place For Us, was penned by US songstress Carrie Underwood.

The Voyage of the Dawn Treader has been one of the most anticipated 3D films of the year and it's set to open in cinemas across the UK and Ireland on December 9. The third instalment of the Narnia saga, based on the books of the same name by C S Lewis which have captivated children for decades.

Joe, a former Newcastle College and Harton Technology College student, will attend the Royal Film Performance and world premiere of the film in London's Leicester Square on November 30, ahead of its UK release.

And a few days later on Sunday, December 5, he will be at the Odeon Cinema at the Metrocentre to introduce a special advance gala screening of the film.

He'll talk to fans about his contribution to the movie, and he will also show the video for his new single, 'Someone Wake Me Up' which showcases footage from the film.

Karen Carr, marketing manager at the Metrocentre said: "We are delighted that Joe is attending the regional premiere of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader at the centre.

"Joe has illustrated that it is not just talent that makes you a star but also charm, charisma and personality.

"He is a great ambassador for the North East and young people.

"We look forward to welcoming him back to the centre - this is not his first and hopefully not his last visit."

Only competition-winning guests will be able to see Joe at the Odeon in Metrocentre Qube.
