Rak-Su have been named the winners of the X Factor 2017.

The Watford-based group beat Grace Davies in the final of the ITV singing competition – the first boy band to win since the show started in 2004.

Rak-Su thanked viewers for voting for them, while their mentor Simon Cowell hailed them as “stars”.
Proceeds from Rak-Su’s winners’ single Dimelo will go to children’s hospice charities Together For Short Lives and Shooting Star Chase.

The track, a duet with Wyclef Jean and Naughty Boy, was first performed during Saturday’s show.
X Factor judge Cowell also praised runner-up Grace Davies, describing her as “really an outstanding, outstanding artist”.

The finalists performed several original songs during their appearances on X Factor, marking a change in the show’s approach this year.

Both Rak-Su and Davies previously had songs played by BBC Introducing before auditioning for the X Factor.
