X Factor finalist Fleur East was pretty excited to head back home to Walthamstow earlier today.

This week, the show's three remaining finalists - Fleur, Ben Haenow and Andrea Faustini - have been hitting the roads in their Battle Buses in the hope to drum up votes to be crowned this year's X Factor winner.

And, today it was Fleur's turn to have her homecoming.

Arriving outside MTV in Camden, Fleur looked every inch the popstar in her cool and colourful getup.

Rocking a pair of skin-tight leather trousers, the 26-year-old finished her look with a vibrant long-jacket, skull printed neck tie and pointed court heels.

And, Fleur was clearly happy to be back in her hometown, wearing a huge smile on her face while making the famous X Factor 'X' with her arms.

Ahead of her meet and greet in Camden, Fleur tweeted: "OMG!! It's my homecoming day!! If you're in Walthamstow, East London come and say hi! I'll be at MTV in Camden at 11.30am!"

Fleur then tweeted a photo of herself standing in front of her very own Battle Bus - and with her face printed right across the front, fans will be sure to know it's her driving past!

Ahead of Saturday night's big final, the three remaining hopefuls have been doing all they can in their bid to win. Like Fleur, Ben too headed back to his hometown of Croydon where he surprised his mum at work yesterday.

Stealing his mum away from her shift at Sainsburys to join him on his Battle Bus, Ben then met with fans before performing in his local highstreet.

But, while Ben and Fleur have travelled home for the day, Italian Andrea Faustini hasn't been able to jet back to Rome. Instead, Mel B's remaining hopeful will treat his supporters to a performance in London's Leicester Square.

Lauren narrowly missed out on her place in the final.

Meanwhile, narrowly missing out on her place in the X Factor final was 17-year-old Lauren Platt.

During Sunday night's results show, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini's only act in the competition was sent home after a unanimous vote by the judging panel.

Following her exit, Lauren told Reveal she was "happy" with finishing in fourth place.

"I knew I would be going home when the bottom two was announced," she said. "I didn't take anything for granted and I'm so happy with fourth place."

This weekend Fleur, Ben and Andrea will battle it out to win this year's X Factor title. And, in a star-studded final, The X Factor has confirmed One Direction, Demi Lovato and Sam Smith will all be performing.

The X Factor final airs this Saturday at 8.30pm on ITV.
