Ben Haenow has revealed his estranged father was in the crowd at Wembley Arena last night (14.12.14) to see him crowned winner of 'The X Factor'.

Ben Haenow's estranged father was at the 'X Factor' final last night (14.12.14).

The 29-year-old star was crowned winner of the ITV talent show last night and he's revealed his dad - who left him and his family when he was just a toddler - was in the crowd to cheer him to victory.

Speaking on 'Lorraine' about rebuilding their relationship, Ben said: "He was actually there on the Sunday night. It's the first time they [his mum and dad] have been in the same kind of room together for a long time but I think it was a proud moment for both of them and I really wanted them both there."

The hunk also had the support of his long term girlfriend Jessica Jones - who he previously revealed prepared him for the live shows by getting raunchy - who he describes as his "rock".

Quizzed on how long they'd been together, he said: "Yeah over six years and again she's kind of been my rock through this. If I needed to speak to anyone when I was down about anything she was always there for me."

Ben - who admits he didn't sleep at all after beating fellow over 25s contestant Fleur East last night - is now looking forward to taking a break over the festive season.

He added: "I think I'm going to get a couple of days off over Christmas, just to get back and see my family and have some good food."
