The five remaining X Factor acts have each recorded their own winner's single, it has been reported.

According to The Mirror, Matt Cardle, Mary Byrne, One Direction, Rebecca Ferguson and Cher Lloyd have all started work on different tracks ahead of the semi-final this weekend.

Traditionally all the acts have sung the same winner's song, such as 'The Climb' last year and 'Hallelujah' in 2008.

However, Simon Cowell has apparently increased the budget and allowed them all to produce different tracks because he wants songs that suit each singer and he is willing to spend extra money to guarantee the show another Christmas number one.

The five acts will all apparently shoot videos for what will potentially be their debut solo single later this week.
