Prison officer Bailey wins X Factor
Prison officer Sam Bailey has been crowned the UK's 10th X Factor winner after the public picked her over teenager Nicholas McDonald in the final show of the series.
Sam, a 36-year-old mother of two, has won a recording contract and will support American pop superstar Beyonce on the UK leg of her Mrs Carter world tour in February.
The clear favourite before the announcement, Sam said in front of 10,000 fans at tonight's live final at Wembley Arena that she did not know what to say after being told she had received over a million votes.
