Claire Richards and Joe Washbourn believe they will leave 'Popstar to Operastar' this week.

The ex-Steps star and Toploader singer have been paired together for the semi-final duet on Sunday (03.07.11) and Joe admits the choice of song - 'Con Te Partiro', Italian for "time to say goodbye" - indicates their time may be up.

He told the Daily Star newspaper: "It means "time to say goodbye" in Italian. So it sounds like we are going".

Former 'X Factor' winner Joe McElderry - who is firm favourite to win the show - will duet with Bucks Fizz star Cheryl Baker, and has claimed he is likely to win on the "popular vote".

Classical music singer Katherine Jenkins has previously suggested the 20-year-old singer could have a great opera career in front of him if he was prepared to put in the tough training.

She said: "To sing classical music is difficult. I think Joe could be an opera singer if he wanted to be - with training. I think Joe's got a very good chance. He's young, he's really working hard."
