Leon Jackson wins X-Factor

Well he was my favourite choice to win and I am glad he did.

Scottish crooner Leon Jackson has won the fourth series of ITV talent search the X Factor.

"It's not real," said the stunned 18-year-old as he took the prize of a £1 million recording contract. "Thank you for everybody who voted."

Second place went to Welsh tenor Rhydian Roberts, while sibling act Same Difference came third.

Leon's single - a rewritten version of Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston's When You Believe - is out on Monday.

He is likely to scoop the coveted Christmas number one next week, following in the footsteps of the last two X Factor winners, Shayne Ward and Leona Lewis.
