X Factor’s Geoff Mull is the latest to Sing a Song for Christmas for our Visitor website.
Gentleman Geoff kindly gave us a burst of Shakin’ Stevens 1985 number one ‘Merry Christmas Everyone’ while backstage at the recent Lancaster Christmas Lights switch-on.
Geoff is great pals with Lancaster X Factor star Paul Akister.
Their friendship wasn’t dented when Paul was preferred to Geoff by the judges, eliminating the genial Gateshead singer in the ‘Six Seat Challenge’ on the ITV talent show.
“Boot Camp was amazing, being there with such great talent,” said Geoff.
“I sang well on stage, and I got a seat, I’ve never felt like that in my life. But then Paul, the last performer, came out, sang and took my seat. I wouldn’t have given up my seat for anyone else though.
“Paul is one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. We’ve kept in touch. He’s so down to earth, a great guy.”
Geoff’s album ‘Different’ is now available on iTunes, Spotify and Amazon.
