X Factor runner-up Jahmene Douglas has landed his first job since losing out to James Arthur in the talent search show - back at his old employer.

The former shelf stacker has recorded a version of Silent Night for an online advert for Asda.

He said he recorded the track as a "way of saying thank you" to everyone who voted for him throughout the show.

He said: "It was an amazing feeling to record my first song in the studio that wasn't for the show. I feel blessed to have had this opportunity and can't wait to see what the future holds."

He will be among the acts taking part in the X Factor tour along with Arthur and fellow finalist Christopher Maloney.
