Magherafelt barman Niall Sexton has made it through to the judges' houses stage of X Factor.

The 22-year-old was named in Nicole Scherzinger's final six in the Boys category. Only three will progress to the weekly live shows.

Niall had missed out on reaching the same stage in the singing contest back in 2011.
