Who is Armstrong Martins?

Armstrong Martins is a 23-year-old musician, who also works as a youth worker and church singer.

He left his childhood home at the age of 13 and has been looked after by his church pastor since.

Armstrong chose to sing High School Musical's soundtrack Breaking Free for his audition.

Simon Cowell was intrigued by his song choice and as soon as he heard what Armstrong was going to sing, said: "I am really really looking forward to this."

Who are this year's X Factor judges?

The judging panel for the fifteenth series of the show has seen a major overhaul.

Simon Cowell remains but all three other judges have been replaced.

That means that Nicole Scherzinger, Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne are no longer on the panel.

Instead they have been replaced by Louis Tomlinson, Robbie Williams and his wife Ayda Field. Sharon Osbourne will also help out during the live shows.


When did The X Factor 2018 start?

The X Factor airs every Saturday and Sunday.

It usually starts around 8pm although the time can vary from week to week.

Last year's contest was won by Rak-Su who triumphed in the final over Grace Davies.

As well as the audition stages this year's competition will also feature the Six Chair Challenge and of course the live shows.
