High hopes for Luke as X-Factor final approaches

This weekend the X-Factor reaches a climax with the final and two live shows which will determine this year's winner.

Of course Westcountry support is behind Devon's Luke Friend. Luke was in the bottom two again last Sunday but is still in with a chance of winning. Divya Kohli went to meet him ahead of the final.


Luke's parent's 'over the moon'

Luke Friend's parents say they're over the moon that their son has made it to the X Factor final

Sue Potts and Steve Friend, who are from Teignmouth, say Luke's been enthusiastic about performing music since he was 11.

They've told RIchard Lawrence they're proud he has kept his integrity ...and his hair which the production team had urged him to have cut!

Has Luke done enough to get through?

The public chose Skinny Love for Luke Friend from Devon to sing in last night's 'Jukebox choices' round of The X Factor. He said it was the song he would have chosen, though Louis said it was a song he hated.

Sharon said after the performance: "That's was not skinny love, that was big juicy love."

Gary said he was a "massive fan" while Nicole said his voice "soared".

He'll find out if the performance was good enough to put him through on tonight's results show at 8pm on ITV.
