FROM shedding the pounds to spending more time with family, Sunderland celebrities have been making their New Year’s resolutions.
Among those pledging to make a change in 2015 is Collabro star Jamie Lambert from Rickleton, in Washington.
The 25-year-old had a lot to celebrate in 2014 after winning Britain’s Got Talent with his classical boyband, singing at the Royal Variety performance and topping the charts with number one album, Stars.
For this year, he said: “I am going to remember to appreciate the little moments more.”
Lola Saunders, who made it to the live finals of the X Factor in 2014, is also hoping to see changes in the new year.
The 20-year-old, of East Boldon, said: “My New Year’s Resolution is to eat to moderation. I want to have that bikini body. I’m happy in my own skin and I’m happy at the moment but I know every girl after Christmas just wants to nip in here, and here, so I’m going to eat to moderation.”
Theatre star Ben Forster from Millfield, Sunderland, who shot to fame after winning ITV’s Superstar programme, said: “To be a little bit less busy so I can get home more to spend more time with my family in Sunderland.”
Sunderland Empire panto star Su Pollard says she isn’t making any resolutions while co-star Matt Lapinskas, who found fame on EastEnders, said: “I would like to strive to live a healthier and more successful life than I have done so far.” Olympic boxing champ Tony Jeffries, from Silksworth, who runs the Box ‘n’ Burn gym in the US, said: “I’m deleting the Facebook, Twitter and Instagram apps off my phone to cut down on using social networking because I’m never off it. I’m only going to use them when I’m in Box ‘n’ Burn.”
