Dartford: X-Factor stars 5 After Midnight will be at the Christmas lights switch on with panto stars

By Angela Cole

X-Factor finalists from last year, 5 After Midnight, will be among the stars coming out for Dartford's Christmas lights switch-on this weekend.

The band made such an impression on Simon Cowell after ending the show in third place, that he signed them to his record label Syco Music.

They join other stars from the show on the label, including Little Mix, James Arthur and Ella Henderson.
