Ella Henderson kept things short and sweet posting: “YES!!!!!!!! @RylanClark”

X Factor champion James Arthur spent the evening canvassing for votes for his friend previously writing: “Everyone get voting for @RylanClark c'mon my brother from another mother!! #LOVE #rylantowin”

Much like Ella, James kept things simple on finding out that Rylan had beat out Heidi and Spencer to the title.

He wrote: “Yes Rylan!!!!”

We have a feeling that Rylan Clark will be getting a very warm welcome when he arrives in Manchester later today for the first leg of the X Factor tour.
