PICTURES! X Factor stars from the past - What are they up to now?

Over the past Few years The X factor as thrown hundreds of talented (and not so talented) people into the limelight, and quite a few are still hanging on.

From winners like Little Mix to the more wacky likes of Kitty Brucknell, X Factor acts past and presents continue to turn up all over the place

We've taken a special look at what some of the stars of the X factor are up to now, and it's quite a mix of things.

We see Kitty Brucknell still around, looking glam in green on the red carpet of a TV awards ceremony in London.

Under her feet, Misha B is busking on the underground with Boris Johnson, a sentence we never imagined we'd ever be typing.

And then there is last year's star Rylan Clark who has been going nowhere quickly after making the quarter-finals on last summer's show. After winning Celebrity Big Brother earlier this year, Rylan now has full-time presenting work on the likes of This Morning and Bit On The Side, at least when he's not hanging out with a load of gorgeous models!

After a short marriage, Katie Waissel popped up earlier this year in LA at an awards ceremony and it's the USA where Little Mix currently are as well, trying to become the first British girl group in some two decades to crack the American charts.
