Simon Lynch has joined the cast of Les Miserables in London's West End.

The singer wowed on The X Factor last year at his first audition with a Beyonce cover, eventually making it as far as judges' houses.

Now he's set to follow in the footsteps of many other X Factor alumni and take to the stage.

Simon will be joining Les Mis at the Queen’s Theatre in London from June 13.

He tweeted last night: "FINALLY I CAN TELL YOU ALL. I'm in @lesmisofficial SURPRISE xxxx"

Simon is the latest star from The X Factor to hit musical theatre: Right now Lucie Jones is playing Elle Woods in Legally Blonde, Joe McElderry is appearing as Joseph in Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Alexandra Burke is performing in both Sister Act and The Bodyguard while Amelia Lily is Whatshername in Green Day's American Idiot Musical.
