When Fleur East performed her new single Sax, on the X Factor last year, everyone went absolutely mental. 

Since then we have all been eagerly awaiting for the music video to come out, because if her performances on the reality show were anything to go by, the video was going to be BIG. 

Well, it landed this week, and let us tell you, it does not disappoint. 

Full of bright colour, skin-thigh outfits and infectious dancing, we can see everybody shaking their booty to this at every Christmas party this year: 



There is very exciting news for fans of X Factor star Fleur East as it has been confirmed she has signed to Simon Cowell’s record label, Syco.

Though Fleur lost out on the big prize to Ben Haenow, it seems it makes no difference as now they are both signed – yay! The singer, who had been tipped to win the singing competition, announced the exciting news on her Twitter page, writing: “It’s official!!! The hard work starts now!!!”

The news may not come as a big surprise to those avid fans of the show however, as it had been rumoured that Simon was so impressed by Fleur’s talent that he planned to sign her weather she won or lost.

While we’re sure Ben is delighted for his fellow X Factor contestant, he may be wondering what the difference in being a winner and a runner-up are after this news! 



Last year’s X Factor finalist, Nicholas McDonald has admitted that he was disappointed in his mentor, Louis Walsh. The young singer was speaking to OK! magazine when he made the surprising admission, saying: “Louis supported me and guided me the best way. He got me to where I am today. But when we got to the final and he asked everyone to vote for Sam, I was thinking ‘Isn’t he meant to be my mentor?’”

Always a sweetie however, Nicholas also professed his love for last year’s winner, saying: “I was a bit disheartened but Sam Bailey is phenomenal. She’s like Celine Dion, she’s crazy amazing.”

Aww, what a cutie, we’re sure it was a shock for him to hear Louis tell people to vote for another act. 

Louis doesn't have an act in this year's final following the elimination of Stereo Kicks, but seems to be backing Fleur East to win the competition. 

Fleur wowed judges and audiences last weekend with her amazing rendition of Mark Ronson's Uptown Funk which shot straight to number one in the iTunes charts shortly afterwards. 



If you thought things were dramatic on I’m A Celebrity this year, spare a thought for the ITV show’s neighbour, The X Factor.

In the latest scandal to rock the show, this year’s finalists have reportedly expressed their anger against Simon Cowell and his fellow judges over their favouritism of Fleur East.

According to the Daily Star, finalists Andrea Faustini, Lauren Platt and Ben Haenow are convinced that the judges’ clear partiality towards Fleur has ensured her win on this year’s show.

A source told the newspaper: “It’s beginning to look obvious the judges want her to win. It may as well be called ‘The F Factor’ – it’s very unfair. It’s been set up perfectly for Fleur to win.”

Fleur has received standing ovations and glowing reports from the judges so far, with her powerful vocals and funky image impressing at every stage.

While it is no doubt a tense time for the finalists, we’re sure the most worthy act will walk away with the title!


X Factor finalist Fleur East has been one of the standout performers on this year's show, but she has let her talent do the talking so far, preferring to keep her personal life out of the spotlight.

Although she did admit that there "might be someone" special in her life, Fleur refused to dish any further details to the press.

Now though, her secret boyfriend's identity has been revealed. The singer has been seeing French fashion designer Marcel Robin for quite a while and things are "definitely serious," according to an insider. 

"She is very proud of him, but has been keeping his name a secret in a bid to protect him from the publicity the show has given her," added the source. 'It has been difficult but, because Marcel understands, it hasn't created any tension."

Marcel is no stranger to the limelight, though – his fashion label, Elevate London, has been worn by the likes of Rita Ora and Jason Derulo. And although Fleur has kept her man's identity under wraps, she has in fact worn a number of his designs on the show, too.

With just three weeks to go until the X Factor final, Fleur has beaten Italian singer Andrea Faustini to become the bookies' favourite to win. Although Andrea was hotly anticipated to be this year's winner, his outburst after last Sunday's results show has left many worried if he may be crumbling under the pressure.



X Factor boss Simon Cowell knows his stuff when it comes to reality TV, so we're happy to take his predictions on board for this year's show.

When asked what three contestants he would tip for the final three, Simon chose only two out of his own remaining acts – and one of Mel B's.

With just four weeks left til the final, the music mogul said he reckoned Ben Haenow, Fleur East and Mel's contestant Andrea Faustini were all likely to stick around on the show 'til the end. 

He did leave out his third act, poor Stevi Ritchie, but it was hardly a surprise given that Simon voted against him in the last-minute choice between Stevi and Jay James on Sunday.

"I really really like both of you. Jay you’re the better singer, Stevi you’re the better performer," said Simon in Sunday's results show. "I hate to say this, but I’m sending home Stevi."

In the end Jay was knocked out by the public vote, with Stevi safe for another week. Kinda awkward, no?!

Whatever about Simon's predictions, whoever wins this year will have a tough time battling against Band Aid 30 for the Christmas number one spot. 

The Do They Know It's Christmas? re-make was introduced on the X Factor results show last Sunday, so it already has a few week's head start. However Simon says it really doesn't matter to him who makes the top spot. "It doesn't bother me. If anything's going to be [number one] let it be a charity single."

We wonder if he's quite so calm on the inside!
