Chanal Benjilali sailed through to bootcamp on The X Factor 2016 last night.

After the show spent 10 minutes on a pair arguing over chicken in Saturday's episode it was a shame that 17-year-old Chanal's audition was skimmed over, but that's The X Factor we guess.

The teenager from Wandsworth in South West London performed Lauryn Hill's Ex Factor and easily won over the judges.

"You've got such a great R&B voice for such a young age," Nicole Scherzinger raved.

"I'M SAYING YES!" interjected Louis Walsh.

"I love you, I think you're great," said Simon to squeals from a VERY excited Chanal.

Meanwhile another teenager has been named a "contender" to win The X Factor after the weekend's auditions.

18-year-old Freddy Parker impressed the judges on Sunday night with cover of Amy Winehouse's Love is A Losing Game.

"I'm a bit nervous but I'm really excited to get in there," said Freddy before his audition, who works with dogs for a living. "To perform in front of the judges today, it's scary but it could completely change my life."

"Freddy, you were born to do music," declared Louis after Freddy's performance.

Sharon Osborune branded him "very, very, cool" while Simon got goosebumps.

With four yeses, Freddy sailed through to next stage with Nicole tipping him to be a "contender".

But auditions aren't over yet with more next Saturday and Sunday on ITV.
