Winner Ben Haenow headlines the line up of contestants with Fleur East, Andrea Faustini and Lauren Platt all performing.

Others on the bill are groups Stereo Kicks and Only The Young, while Stevi Ritchie proves a real guilty pleasure with non-stop crowd pleasing upbeat numbers.

Also singing is Jay James while Paul Akister will be a special addition to the line up at the tour's shows in his home city of Manchester at the end of this week.
