Ben Haenow has just beaten fellow Overs act Fleur East to take this year's X Factor title. 


It was the battle of 'Team Cowell' as the music mogul mentored both acts in the final. But it's the former van driver from Croydon who will be putting pen to paper and signing this year's winner's contract. He's also released his very own single, a cover of OneRepublic's Something I Need, in a bid for this year's Christmas Number One.

Here's how the result went down online...

There was happiness


Capital letter-filled excitement


Praise floods in for runner-up Fleur, too

Houses were being screamed down

There were tears

Some more singing...

What do we do now?

Back to that confusion

For some it's all about Xtra Factor

Ben, make sure to thank Kyle

Some have different thoughts on winning


But let's get back to Ben being crowned champion...
