The Halifax Christmas lights switch on will be sprinkled with stardom when X Factor star Tom Bleasby sings at the festive event.

19-year-old Tom, from Leeds, was successful in the talent show’s six chair challenge and was selected to compete in the live shows in Nick Grimshaw’s category.

But Tom withdrew from the competition this week and will thrill crowds at this year’s Christmas lights switch on, which will take place on Saturday, November 28.

Tom hit headlines across the globe after his duet with Jessie J singing the hit song ‘Flashlight’ went viral.

He was then invited onto the Ellen DeGeneres show in the USA and after an interview with Ellen, was surprised by Jessie J before singing live with her on the show.
