Popstart to Operastar hopeful Joe McElderry has compared training for the show to taking part in an exercise class! The 20-year-old revealed that he was finding the show's new approach to singing very difficult having performed on The X Factor and as a popstar for most of his short career.

Joe said: "It's full on, the training is...well, I’ve never done anything like it before, it's like coming out of an exercise class."

He added: "It's so different to being on The X Factor. It's much more technical."

The former X Factor winner has so far sailed through the first three rounds and is currently the hot favourite to win the show!

Popstar to Operastar continues this Sunday at 8PM on ITV1.
