Hopefield Animal Sanctuary proved it really had the X Factor over the weekend - with not one but two winners showing their support for the Brentwood charity's winter fete!
Leona performed at the festive event which raised thousands of pounds for the sanctuary at Sawyers Hall Lane in Brentwood.
Leona Lewis is not the only famous face to support Hopefield - actor Brian Blessed is also a patron.
Around sixty horses will need shelter at Hopefield over the festive period.
Leona said, "Since the first day I visited Hopefield Animal Sanctuary I knew it would become a big part of my life. The work they are doing to save these abused and neglected animals is essential, they would simply have nowhere else to go if this sanctuary wasn’t here."
Matt, from Little Maplestead near Halstead, also performed at the festive fete.
Hopefield recently opened five new stables for horses. As well as horses, the Sanctuary is also home to donkeys, chickens, goats, ducks and Alpacas.
Leona Lewis, who won the competition in 2006 and Essex singer Matt Cardle - the 2010 winner - both performed at the event.
