The singer, who first found fame in The X Factor, sold out the venue in an hour when tickets went on sale and was joined by fellow X Factor alumna Louisa Johnston for the gig.

The show was just one of the many being put on this week as part of Forest Live 2017.

Thursday saw indie band Elbow take to the stage, greeted by several thousands of fans.
