Luke Friend faces a nail-biting wait until tonight to discover whether he's through to the finals of ITV's The X Factor. The 17 year-old from Teignmouth was praised for his performance last night by judge Gary Barlow.
Friend kicked off the show with Beyonce's Best Thing I Never Had, following it with Sir Elton's Something About The Way You Look Tonight. Barlow said he was impressed by Friend's originality and said he had improved the most out of all of the show's contestants.
But fellow judge Nicole Scherzinger said she thought Friend's Beyonce performance sounded like a cross between One Direction and Mumford and Sons - but it was not clear if she meant that as a compliment.
The four final acts - Friend, Nicholas McDonald, Rough Copy and Sam Bailey - each had to choose a song by Beyonce and one by Sir Elton John to secure their places in the final three.
Police say they are increasingly concerned for the welfare of a Teignmouth man who has been missing since the evening of Thursday 21 November. Marc Jones, 30, left home at approximately 7pm wearing a dark Superdry jacket with blue jeans and white trainers.
Marc is 5 feet 7" tall, with a broad Scottish accent. Police would like anyone with information to contact them on 101.
Three people were taken to hospital today (Sunday 28 July) after being rescued from the sea at Dawlish, Devon. Teignmouth RNLI lifeboat and Teignmouth Coastguard were called out at 2.15pm to reports of three men in difficulty.
Coastguards say that although the men were checked out at hospital they are doing well.
