The X Factor 2014: Ben Haenow spotlight

The first of the Overs steps under our spotlight.

Ben Haenow

Today is the last day of our X Factor 2014 finalist spotlights and we’re taking a closer look at Simon Cowell’s Overs.

During the judges’ houses stage of the competition most of the Overs fell to pieces but one that really impressed was van driver Ben Haenow. Ben has been one of the highlights of the Overs category and has wowed the judges at every stage of the competition.

Now he’s through to the live shows, we think Ben has a really good chance of winning the whole show.

Talking about getting through to the live shows Ben says, “I can’t believe it. I wasn’t happy with my performance and everyone else was so good. To be the last one to be sent through, as well. It felt like I was waiting for a year.”

Is he looking forward to his X Factor makeover? “I’m excited about it. I’m not sure I want highlights or blue ends but I’m definitely willing to have a bit of a trim. I’ve never been styled, I’ve never had that before.”

He’s already started thinking about his dream duets but there’s one issue. “All my heroes are dead, man! Robert Plant, from Led Zep. If I could have a dead one it’d be Otis Reading. The guy has an amazing voice.”

The X Factor 2014 live shows kick off at 7.30pm Saturday on ITV. Watch Ben’s judges’ houses performance below:
