When James Arthur was crowned the winner of The X Factor, we knew that District 3 would be chuffed as the guys have championed James all the way.

Dan told us exclusively: "Everyone celebrated in different places. I went out with two of the Union J boys. JJ from Union J begged me to go to the club with him because he didn't want to turn up alone, so I came. I went to the toilets within ten minutes of getting there, and they left! So I was left in the club by myself till 5 o'clock in the morning just partying around with Jade Ellis."

Micky told us: "Lucy is good to party with. On Saturday we went to a VIP area in the Radisson, and Lucy was just nicking stuff out the mini bar! She was telling me to distract people! It would've been fun to go out more with her."

District 3 were naturally chuffed that James Arthur walked away with The X Factor crown, but they said Jahmene was a worthy runner up.

Greg said: "Both of them deserved to win. James had 54% of the vote which shows there wasn't much in it. They're both going to do really well."

Micky agreed: "Although James won — and I know this sounds really cheesy — but I think they both won. Because they're both absolutely incredible. Jahmene is one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet."

District 3 say James Arthur was a worthy winner of X Factor. Copyright [Rex]Following The X Factor final, the District 3 guys have been rehearsing for their first ever headline shows this weekend.

The lads are in agreement that the shows are to give back to their 3eeks after all their support.

Greg revealed: "We're nervous because when we've been doing these gigs at clubs it's not necessarily our fans. So we owe it to them to do a gig and it makes us more excited."

Dan continued: "Being on X Factor they had a reason to be interested in you, so the fact they've kept an interest even when we've come off the show is amazing and we're very grateful for that. That's why we're looking forward to the shows. There are lots of surprises in store for the fans."
