The video follows Sam's journey from the room auditons, through to Wembley Arena, the judges' houses and reaching the live shows.

X Factor host Dermot O'Leary can be heard announcing Sam as the winner as she pipped runner-up Nicholas McDonald to the post.

The visual also features tender moments of Sam's husband Craig and their two children, Brooke and Tommy. It definitely shows the journey that the former prison officer has made from being a singing hopeful to being crowned this year's winner!

Voting statistics released after the final, revealed that Sam won the public vote nearly every single week.

Yesterday (19 December), fans rushed to Sam's hometown of Leicester to meet the singer as she signed copies of 'Skyscraper'.

Wearing a navy embellished Christmas jumper, Sam was all smiles as she posed for a photo and proudly held the physical copy of her debut single in a HMV branch.
