In recent weeks, some of the the local papers in County Durham have been keenly following the fortunes of local “budding pop star” Charlie Mole, who is appearing in the TV show “X Factor” with her group called Hope.
This week comes news that Charlie and her boyfriend Lee Daglish are planning to get married.
The Shields Gazette reports that Lee proposed to Charlie on her 23rd birthday - also the day she found out she had got through to the live final stage of The X Factor.
Good luck to Lee and Charlie ... maybe if Hope win the contest, we shall have a Daglish pop star!
