Little Mix in chart battle with X Factor contestant Lucy Spraggan

On releasing 'Wings' last night, Little Mix leapt straight to the top of the Itunes chart but now it seems that they may have some competition on their hands in the form of this year's X Factor contestant Lucy Spraggan.

Lucy wowed the judges on Saturday's show with her original song 'Last Night'.

But now it seems that the 20-year-old singer/songwriter has also impressed music buyers, with the song currently sitting at number two on the Itunes chart.

This is the first year that The X Factor has allowed signed acts to audition for the show.

Lucy previously released her debut album 'Top room at the Zoo' in 2009 which included her audition song.

Since Saturday fans have flocked to download the quirky song dubbed 'Beer Fear' as well as the album which currently also sits at number two on the albums chart.

Not bad going for a relative unknown artist before Saturday.

On hearing 'Last Night' being played on the radio, Lucy couldn't contain her excitement.

Taking to Twitter, the singer posted: "Just heard my song on the big top 40 on Capital FM. I SCREAMED"

Little Mix are however still in the lead of this unexpected chart battle but it hasn't stopped them from going on the campaign trail for their single.

The band posted on their official Twitter account a plea to their fans to buy the song.

They wrote: "Its gr8 to see how gd wings is doing! Let's keep it up there! Download wings on itunes now if you haven't already! LOVE YA LITTLE MIXERS! <3"
