    Steve Brooksteinbecame the mums' favourite and took home the first-ever champion X Factor spot in 2004. Mentored by Simon Cowell, he beat opera group G4 and young singer Tabby Callaghan in the final - despite Sharon Osbourne's protests. He later released Against All Odds as his winner's single, which reached number one in the UK. But after one album, he was dropped. He has, however, maintained a level of press attention thanks to the vocalisation of some extreme opinions on Twitter.

    Shaynebecame a firm favourite throughout the second series of X Factor and was crowned the winner in 2005, beating Andy Abraham. His single, That's My Goal, made it to number one that Christmas. Since then he has released four albums – a self-titled debut which went 4x platinum upon its release in April 2006; Breathless, which went 5x platinum following its 2007 release; Obsession in 2010, which failed to chart; and Closer, which he released in 2015 independently after he was dropped by his record label. As well as his music career, he later took on the role of Staycee Jaxx in the 80s musical Rock of Ages on the West End and stayed with the show from 2011 to 2012. He is now most known for his acting chops, becoming a regular cast member of Coronation Street since 2015 until his emotional departure in 2018. But he has since said that he does intend to return to music.

    Her winner's single, A Moment Like This, hit platinum status and spent four weeks at number one. After her win against Ray Quinn, she became the first internationally recognised winner of the show, cracking the tough American market. As of 2017, she has released five albums, including a Christmas album, and her debut album Spirit sold 9million copies. Her massive hits include a cover of Snow Patrol's Run, and original song Bleeding Love, and she's bagged two MOBO awards and a VMA. She also performed in the musical Cats as character Grizabella on Broadway in 2016.

    Mentored by Dannii Minogue, Leon Jackson became the shock winner of the series, beating Rhydian Roberts to the win. Covering Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston track When You Believe as his winner's song, it became the fastest selling single of 2007 and Leon became the first Scottish singer to ever get a Christmas number one. He released one album with SyCo the following year, before breaking ties with the label and going it alone. Leon is yet to make a follow-up release but travels to and from Los Angeles working as a songwriter.

    Alexandra Burkestormed to victory over JLS in the final of the 2008 series, though both went on to have incredible pop success. Her hit singles have included a cover of the iconic track Hallelujah, and dance anthems Bad Boys, All Night Long and Broken Heels. She has released two albums since her win, Overcome in 2009 and Heartbreak on Hold in 2012, as well as EP Renegade in 2015. Her success was so big that she was personally name-checked by Beyonce as someone she wanted to collaborate with, and she signed a deal to be the face of fashion label Dolce and Gabbana. Alexandra has since moved to the stage, taking on the lead role in the Sister Act musical and Whitney Houston's role in The Bodyguard in the West End.

    Joewas only eighteen years old when he managed to win the 2009 series of the talent show. His fellow finalists, Olly Murs and Stacey Solomon, have also gone on to massive success as a pop star and TV presenter respectively. His single, a cover of Miley Cyrus hit The Climb, failed to make No.1 after a successful campaign to get Rage Against the Machine's Killing In The Name Of to the top spot. After two years with Simon Cowell's label SyCo, he was dropped and was instead picked up by Decca Records. In 2011, Joe tried his hand at opera singing in the second series of Popstar to Opera Star - and continued his winning streak by going home champion. He won with an impressive 77% of the vote - beating Cheryl Baker in the final. In 2014, he became the emergency replacement on The Jump after Henry Conway was injured - and again, he won the show. Joe is now in a touring production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical, Joseph and his Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat. This is the second time he's be...

    After Mattwon the show, he was nominated for a BRIT award for his winner's single, When We Collide, originally by Biffy Clyro. However, his success was quickly overtaken by One Direction's - who shockingly came in runner-up to him in the finale. After a year, Matt decided to leave his label, citing that he "needed to be selfish" as One Direction continued to dominate the charts and the label's focus as a result. He has released four studio albums since his win and took the lead role in musical Memphis in the West End in 2015.

    The four-piece girl group were put together by Simon during the audition process, and have become the show's biggest winning act to date. While others (like One Direction and Olly Murs) have achieved commercial success, Little Mixbroke the mould by being the only ones to win the competition and go on to huge success. They were the first band to win the competition, beating Marcus Collins, and also broke records held by the Spice Girls in the US. To date they have released five albums, all peaking inside the top ten, and their hit songs have included Salute, Black Magic, Shout Out To My Ex and Woman Like Me.

    James Arthurwas crowned the winner of the ninth series of the show after beating Jahmene Douglas. He went on to become the fastest-selling X Factor winner to that date with his debut - a cover of Shontelle's Impossible. His follow up single, 'You’re Nobody ’til Somebody Loves You’, reached number two on the UK charts and his self-titled debut album did the same in November 2013. But James experienced the less desirable side of fame soon after he won the X Factor - with several women coming forward and revealing his 'sexcapades' with them, including Ria Vincent and a prostitute who revealed she performed a sex act on Jameswhile he kept his socks on. Danielle Withey, 18, revealed that the singer made her go pick up a £5 bottle of Rose wine and then wore his jumper. James was dropped from SyCo in June 2014, but in a first, he re-signed to SyCo Records after he had cleaned up his act. Releasing Say you Won't Let Go in September 2016, it rocketed to the top of the UK music charts - as we...

    In the live finals, Samworked her way to secure her spot by fighting off competitors including Sam Callahan, Luke Friend and Tamera Foster. When she won, Sam made it to the coveted Christmas Number One spot with a cover of Demi Lovato's Skyscraper. After The X Factor, Sam released her debut album The Power Of Love in March 2014. The album reached the top spot of the albums chart in the UK and sold over 160,000 copies. She self-funded her second album, Sing My Heart Out,after being axed by Simon Cowell’s record label. In 2016 Bailey starred in the musical Chicago where she played the role of Mama Morton and in May 2017 she was announced as a lead role in Fat Friends: The Musical.
