Joe McElderry is feeling under the weather today - and just to demonstrate he's shared a picture of himself from his sickbed.

Joe, 22, is suffering from nasty cold so has popped on a onesie and tucked himself up under his duvet while he recovers.

Sharing a black and white selfie, the former X Factor winner simply told his followers: "#fluface."

It seems poor Joe has been suffering for some time, as on Monday (30 September) he tweeted: "Great!!! I have woken up feeling horrible!! Sore throat heavy head the lot!!! :("

Yesterday he added: "Stocking up on Lemsips today!!! Sneezeeearooooo is my name!!"

Joe has been inundated from fans wanting to send their get well wishes. One wrote: "Aww you do look poorly get well soon! Xx"

Get well from us too, Joe!
