Every British number 1 single this year has come from an X Factor act


Every British number one single of 2016 has come from an X Factor contestant.

And that trend could well continue, as latest winner Louisa Johnson looks to launch her bid for the top spot this week.

So far there have been 10 unique Number One singles this year, 3 from Brits and all from X Factor alumni.

Former 1D champ Zayn Malik topped the charts with his solo debut Pillowtalk back in February, James Arthur spent three weeks at Number 1 with Say You Won't Let Go and Little Mix's Shout Out To My Ex knocked him off pole position last Friday.

In Monday night's midweek update, Little Mix were still on top and on course for a second week at the chart summit.

The girls were 21,000 sales ahead of their closest competition, fellow champ James former chart topper Say You Won't Let Go, having now scored four Number 1s.

It means we may end up with an X Factor 1-2-3 next week with Louisa dropping her new single on Friday.

Called So Good, the song will be released at the end of the week and get a live plug on The X Factor on Sunday night.
