X FACTOR hopeful James Arthur has made it through to next week's show, as home support for the singer continues to grow.

The performer was the first artist to make it through Sunday's live results show, with Rylan Clark the latest act to be sent home.

People throughout the Teesside singer's hometown of Saltburn and nearby Middlesbrough have all become ardent members of the JArmy.

And his mum Shirley Ashworth and his sister Sian Arthur were in the Cleveland Shopping Centre in Middlesbrough drumming up even more support.

The JArmy was in full flow with James Arthur Street Teams handing out posters to help promote the talented singer-songwriter with ‘Keep Calm and Vote James Arthur’ printed on them.

His sister Sian said: “Can we take this opportunity to thank all of the fantastic support we have received from all of the fans in the JArmy and otherwise, the support of friends and family has also been second to none.

“We are asking all of the North East that if they love what James is doing on the show and his style of music, could they please pick up the phone and vote, one vote costs 35p. We would be very grateful for your support.”
