Let It Be for Boro boys.

Byline: Will Sutton

X Factor lads Carl and Andy Pemberton are hoping to dazzle viewers with their two chosen songs in this week's semi-final.

The Coulby Newham singers will be performing The Beatles' classic Let It Be and You're In My Heart by Rod Stewart.

They go into the semi-final as second favourites to win the show.

But they are hoping the Teesside public can push them all the way to victory.

If they make it through tonight's show then a special gig at 5pm awaits them at Middlesbrough Town Hall on Monday.

Carl's girlfriend Vic Duffy, 22, of Nunthorpe, will be watching the lads again and revealed she has some rivalry from X Factor judge Sharon Osbourne.

Vic said: "I got to meet Sharon Osbourne and she always says how gorgeous the lads are and how they are much better looking in real life!"

She added: "Carl is the most laid back person that I have ever known.

"He usually rings before the show and he only sounds just a little bit nervous.

"A few nerves probably helps because it makes you concentrate.

"We've been going down to London for many weeks.

"But the show still has its spark for me.

"It's still exciting."

Vic said she had got to meet several celebrities over the last eight weeks including actress Jennifer Ellison, comedian Ricky Gervais from The Office and also members of the Hollyoaks cast.

Carl and Andy's parents are also having to get used to the exposure.

Mum Genda, 53, from Coulby Newham, said: "Trevor and I went for a meal before the show last week and someone came over and asked us if we were the Journey South parents.

"If it had been on Teesside then I may have understood it but this was down in London.

"Trevor and I talk about what songs they should sing and the competition is on our minds 24/7.

"We can't sleep."
