It was an emotional night for LM. The X Factor is where they started out back in 2011, first auditioning as solo contestants before being put together in a group and winning under mentor Tulisa Contostavlos.

As hosts Caroline Flack and Olly Murs chatted to them on stage, 24-year-old Leigh-Anne admitted that she felt like she was ‘home’. Aw.
