20/12/14: G-A-Y presents the X FACTOR WINNER – BEN HAENOW

He’s easy on the eye, pleasant to the ear and a nice guy all round. Now he’s the talk of TV town as he stormed to the final of X Factor to win this year’s contest and scoop the top prize. He takes the stage at G-A-Y this Saturday 20th for a sensational PA of the tunes that got him to the top. Plus, what could be this year’s Christmas No.1 record with his debut single ‘Something I Need’.

Heaven, Villiers Street, Charing Cross, WC2N 6NG. 10.30pm-5am. £4 entry wristbands available from G-A-Y Bar

What was it like working with Simon Cowell.
Simon was an incredible mentor. Me and Fleur got to go to the Katie Piper Foundation meal with Simon and it was unreal. He took me to the side after the final and said he was so proud of me. He genuinely is really happy and excited for me. I’ve really enjoyed working with him and the thought of getting to work with him and hanging out in the future is really exciting.

How is it living in the X Factor house?
Life inside the house was so much fun. It was basically like living with a load of your friends. Like being at a summer camp.

How do you sum up the experience?
I’ve honestly had some of the best moments of my life over the last few months and I’m so grateful to everyone who has voted for me

What’s on your Christmas list?
I don’t really want anything for Christmas because nothing could top this whole experience.

The single ‘Something I Need’ is out now.
