Lively X Factor hopeful Paije Richardson said goodbye to his teen years and hello twenties as he celebrated his birthday with fellow X Factor contestants Cher Lloyd, Matt Cardle and Katie Waissel.
The trio treated Paije to a not-so thrilling trip to the supermarket, followed by a homecooked lasagne and a fun night in.
But Paije wasn't deterred by his quiet birthday. He told the X Factor website: 'I’m sort of living my dream… I know it sounds a bit cheesy, but I’m doing what I want to do. This is what I’ve always wanted to do. This is what I feel I’m best at and it’s where I wanna be!'
And his birthday wishes? 'To win The X Factor and for next year to have a world-wide platinum album that everyone was just not expecting!'
