X Factor music supremo Simon Cowell has reportedly splashed out on Joe McElderry and his family, offering The X Factor winner a luxury holiday in The Alps.
Joe McElderry and his lucky family will get a taste of the high-life, as they spend two weeks in a five-star chalet in the Austrian Alps, which will set Cowell back a cool £20,000.
Simon announced the holiday shortly after Joe was told by Radio One that he lost his chart battle in-which he and Rage Against The Machine battled it out for the Christmas Number One slot. After a much-publicised Internet campaign, RATM’s track Killing In The Name took the number one spot, with a 50,000 lead on McElderry’s The Climb.
Joe said of the luxury holiday: “It will be me and my closest family. The last few weeks have just rushed by in a blur, so I just can’t wait to put my feet up and really take it all in.“
An insider at The X Factor revealed it would be a whole new experience for Joe, saying: “Joe’s been skiing before but not like this. This will be the full, lavish celebrity treatment in mega-luxury. When Simon treats someone, he really treats them.“
Joe McElderry and his family are due to fly out on Simon’s luxury Private Jet shortly after Christmas.
