After an amazing final showdown, and boogeying until the wee hours of the morning at the aftershow party, the X Factor contestants including James Arthur, Union J and Jahmene bid us a final farewell as they headed home from the shindig. Don’t leave us guys, sob sob.

James still looked as dumbfounded as he did when Dermot announced that he was the champion, but also ridiculously fit in his little grey coat. And, shock horror, the victorious ladies man headed back to his hotel without an orange faced lady draped over his arm. We’re a little relieved, gotta be honest.

Seeing as Jahmene missed out on that million quid record deal, he decided he’d better be a bit careful with his money and instead of getting a taxi, got a free lift off George Shelley instead. Trying very hard to ignore all possible innuendos about wanting to ride George Shelley. Ahem.

Union J’s Josh said a fond farewell to Kye Sones. We have a feeling we might be bidding a fond farewell to him too. We’ll probably see him at judge’s houses again in a couple of years, don't worry Kye fans.

And finally, Union J’s Jaymi looked super sharp and gorgeous as he diva strutted his way home. Let’s all just relive that legendary video of him being a Twilight fangirl, shall we?

 



Do you think the right man won last night’s final? And how much do you want to be on George Shelley's back?
