The youngest winner of the X Factor is tuning up ahead of her performance in Leeds.

Essex student Louisa Johnson beat Cheryl Fernandez-Versini’s duo Reggie ‘N’ Bollie to clinch the title at a star-studded show

Following the announcement she said: “I’ve imagined this day for so many years and you have no idea how much this means to me.”

The singer, who was mentored by Rita Ora, triumphed in the finale where she impressively sang James Brown’s It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World.
