Giles, 16, auditioned for The X Factor as soon as he was old enough. The student gained approval with Jessie J's 'Price Tag' in the room auditions, and after faltering at the arena, came back with 'I Won't Give Up' by Jason Mraz to win his place in San Tropez.

Dreadlock-haired Luke gigs alongside part-time work and studying. The 17-year-old performed 'Alone' by Heart at Boot Camp.

Hull-based mechanic Ryan, 18, bought a guitar with his first pay packet aged 14. He performed 'Wake Me Up' by Avicci at bootcamp, but it was his take on Daft Punk's 'Get Lucky' that really wowed the judges at the arena.

Sam, 19, previously went to theatre school and has performed in various bands. It was his performance of Goo Goo Dolls' 'Iris' that sealed his place in the final six.

The X Factor continues on Saturday, October 5 at 8.20pm on ITV.
