"It felt like an out of body experience"

Meet 29-year-old van driver Ben Haenow who made it through the Arena Auditions to Boot Camp.

How has it been since the first Room Audition?

It’s sort of taken over my life really. You think after the first audition you can just forget about things, but the further you get in the competition the more it takes over.

Have you had any extra phone calls to your delivery service?

No not at all. Its all been the same clients but I’ve been getting treated a bit better when I turn up at reception with a box. There's been no singing requests at the moment – I’m not really that noticed when I’m delivering stuff to be honest.

This weekend was AWESOME!

Well that was one stonker of a weekend as we reached the end of the Arena Auditions (sob!). Like superstar Carrie Underwood, we were loving Kerrianne Covell's version of Carrie's song I Know You Won't, Ben Haenow's version of Wild Horses, and ok, we'll even admit we can't get Raign's performance out of our heads... just like host Dermot...

Sorry Dermot! But Sunday's show also gave us the gorge Charlie Martinez, the incredible Helen Fulthorpe and let's not forget our fave fishmonger, Lola Saunders .

But whilst we wave a sad goodbye to the Arena Auditions, we welcome with open arms (in a Dermot hug stylee) Boot Camp. Who will survive?

If you missed this weekend's shows, then make sure you catch up with The X Factor in all its glory on ITV Player

Who's getting involved with The X Factor?

The celeb world is in a flutter and LOVING The X Factor... don't believe us?
