Van driver Ben Haenow changed his life completely when he entered the X Factor in 2014, winning every single public vote since the fourth week, going on to win the show entirely. Under the guidance of Simon Cowell, Haenow refined his spectacular voice throughout the show, with his stand out personality winning the audience over each time.
Haenow released his winner’s single, a cover of OneRepublic’s “Something I Need”, shooting straight to #1 on the UK Singles Chart and was the Christmas number one. The next year he released his self-titled debut album, peaking at #10 on the UK charts and being certified as Silver. The singer is currently thought to be working on his next album, after releasing his new single “Alive”.
