X Factor finalist Fleur East has stormed to Number One on the UK iTunes chart with her rendition of 'Uptown Funk'.

Fleur stole the show on Saturday night after performing a rendition of Mark Ronson's new single featuring Bruno Mars.

Fleur, who is mentored by Simon Cowell in the competition, received a standing ovation from the judges and studio audience after delivering an electrifying performance.

Just 24 hours later, Fleur found out on last night's Xtra Factor that she bagged the coveted top spot on iTunes' music chart.

Finding out about her chart success, Fleur said on the ITV2 show: "Oh my god. I can't believe it! Right now I am literally lost for words, but feel on top of the world. So many emotions, it's unbelievable."

Fleur currently sits on top of the charts ahead of the likes of Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran and Take That. Now that's pretty impressive!

Simon also took to Twitter to congratulate his act: "Great night tonight. Just heard some amazing news, Fleur East has just gone to Number 1 on iTunes!"

Last night, Lauren Platt was voted out of the competition after ending up in the bottom two with Andrea Faustini. Now, Andrea, Fleur and Ben Haenow will battle it out in next week's grand finale.
