Joe McElderry has "exciting things" planned

X Factor star Joe McElderry has given fans an exciting update in the form of a video message on his blog. 

Speaking directly to the camera, the 'Someone Wake Me Up' singer explained:

"Hi guys, I can't believe it's February already! Sorry I haven't been in touch as much, I've been back up north."

"I'm down in London now, just having lunch, so I thought I'd check in with you guys and let you know what's going on. I've got a few exciting things coming up this week, nothing that I can talk about just yet."

"When you find out you'll be very excited."

Digital Spy reports that a representative of McElderry confirmed he has not been given a role in the West End's musical Les Miserables. Watch the young star perform 'Open Arms' at his recent Lumley Castle gig, here:
