Spotlight: Ben Haenow From X Factor 2014
We spy with our little eyes something beginning with hot X Factor contestant Ben, but sorry boys he’s spoken for!
The 29-year-old van driver from Croydon has certainly made an impact with audiences and has proved very popular with the judges and impressed them all with his version of Wild Horses. Ben used to be in a band with his brother called “The Lost Audio”. He is a long term relationship and nearly proposed to his girlfriend at the arena auditions.
So what does it feel like to be through to the lives?
“I can’t believe it. I wasn’t happy with my performance and everyone else was so good. To be the last one to be sent through, as well. It felt like I was waiting for a year”
What did you feel about the makeovers?
“I’m excited about it. I’m not sure I want highlights or blue ends but I’m definitely willing to have a bit of a trim. I’ve never been styled, I’ve never had that before.”
What is your dream duet?
“All my heroes are dead, man! Robert Plant, from Led Zep. If I could have a dead one it’d be Otis Reading. The guy has an amazing voice.”
And what about your van days?
“I might buy one for leisure purposes!”
