Has the Grinch been ruining your festive season so far? If the boss said no to a work Christmas party or you've given a parking ticket out shopping, don't worry because Jamie and Emma are here to brighten up December! How? The Heart breakfast team have put together their very own X Factor Xmas choir to spread joy to Londoners all over the city. See the contestant line-up...
Check out our Xmas Choir... How many X Factor finalists do you recognise?
Jamie and Emma introduce their Xmas Choir
Kimberley was a late addition to the Xmas Choir...She flew all the way from Egypt to be part of it! You'll remember her from series 4 when Leon Jackson won - she was eliminated in the first week
Shelly was the first to join Jamie and Emma’s Xmas Choir! She was booted off the X Factor in week 2 last year after losing out in the sing-off to Kingsland Road. Sharon Osborne was her mentor. Picture: Getty
Blonde Electra sisters Jazzy and Ruby King called us on Tuesday to say they’ve just moved to London and would LOVE to join the choir! Blonde Electra went out in week 1 of this series after receiving the fewest public votes, coming in 16th place. Louis Walsh was their mentor. Picture: Splash
These loveable boys may have finished ninth place in 2013, but thankfully they've signed up for choir duty! The band, who are now a foursome after Jay Scott (middle) left the band, have been on tour around the UK and they’re currently recording their debut album, scheduled for release in January.
Stevi Ritchie is one of the stars of this series of X Factor, best known for his over-the-top performances. Simon Cowell has mentored him throughout, although it was Cheryl who brought him back as the Over 25’s wildcard. He was voted off the show after a sing-off against Andrea Faustini in week 7.
He appeared in series 8 of the X Factor mentored by Gary Barlow and was never seen without his guitar, but sadly the gorgeous James lost out to Amelia Lily during the 2011 show meaning he was off our Saturday screens for good. Sob. Since leaving, he has been taking an interest in modeling and is keeping up his music career.
He finished third on the first series of The X Factor in 2004 and now Tabby is back singing in our Christmas choir! The soloist originally auditioned with group DZ5 but was told to re-audition on his own if he wanted success and was then mentored by Sharon Osbourne. After The X Factor, Callaghan participated in a fly-on-the-wall "rockumentary" titled ‘What Tabby Did Next’, which was shown on ITV in August 2005, coinciding with the release of his debut single "Number One”.
