X Factor contestant Andrea Faustini looked pretty chuffed last night after meeting the UK's singing sensation Sam Smith!

Italian singer Andrea headed to the MOBO Awards with his fellow X Factor boys to support mentor and judge Mel B, who was co-hosting the ceremony with Sarah-Jane Crawford.

While enjoying the performances of the night inside London's Wembley Arena, Andrea was also cheering on 'Stay With Me' singer Sam, who dominated the night after scooping four gongs!

Meeting soul singer Sam during the ceremony, Andrea said: "Such an inspiration to me! Incredible voice and soul... Thank you @samsmithworld!"

We wonder if Sam's been watching Andrea perform on X Factor?!

We wouldn't be surprised if Andrea gained yet another celebrity fan, as Ed Sheeran has already texted Simon Cowell about the pug-loving singer, calling him "fantastic!"

And if that wasn't enough, during last week's Gogglebox special for Stand Up To Cancer, Kate Moss declared herself to be a massive Andrea fan too!

Kate gushed to Naomi Campbell and Noel Gallagher, saying: "Don't talk to me about Andrea. I'm obsessed."
