Weston College is set to pull out all the stops to support former student George Shelley's X-Factor bid.

George, 19, of Clevedon, is the singer and guitarist in boy band Union J which could now make it through to the show's final on December 9th.

Media and Graphics lecturer Rachael Heath, who was George's tutor on his degree course, said: "What an amazing journey he is on.

"We are all voting like mad for you and hope you come back and see us soon."

George, who was studying at the University Campus, said: "Rachael has been really supportive and we are working very hard.

"My dream is to be signed by a record label."

George's mum, Toni Harris and grandmother Ann Harris have also been to the University Campus to drum up support.

Toni, 50, said: "It's fantastic Union J have got so far.

"I can't believe it's happening sometimes when I look out of our house and there are girls calling and even crying for George.

"He's been working around-the-clock and for the time being is giving all he's got to his music career.

George's eldest brother, Tom, 29, is a builder in Australia, the next, William, 23, is a Royal Marine who has served in Afghanistan and younger sister Harriet, 16, is at Clevedon School.
