X Factor hopefuls head off for the final

The teenager from Middlesbrough was seen leaving her London hotel this morning alongside her show rivals ? Little Mix and Marcus Collins.

The youngster showed little sign of nerves at the prospect of performing live in front of 12,000 people at the iconic arena tonight.

Wrapped up against the winter chill in a pink jacket and clutching a similarly-coloured mobile phone and handbag, the hopeful cut a confident figure.

The Little Mix ladies also ensured they didn't get a chill before the biggest night of their lives by wrapping just as well.

Jade, Perrie, Jessy and Leigh-Anne looked calm as they made their way to waiting cars.

Simon Cowell's plot to turn them into the new Spice Girls may have settled their nerves.

Even if the quartet fail to win the show, the svengali will hand them a record deal worth millions as part of a masterplan to make them stars on both sides of the Atlantic.

A source told The Sun: "Simon is thrilled by the quality of this year's finalists ? but he's extra excited about Little Mix. He genuinely believes they could be bigger than The Spice Girls.

Meanwhile show favourite, crimper Marcus Collins paid tribute to his home town by wearing a hoodie with the word Liverpool written on it.

The contestant's early departure will please fans at the north London venue.

Some had even camped through the night to be the first to catch a glimpse of them.

And as temperatures sank to near freezing last night a pair spoke of how unprepared they were for the conditions.

Best friends Chloe Darson and Chloe Parr, both 16, were the first to arrive at Wembley Arena at 6pm yesterday after travelling to London from Lincolnshire.

"I just had this one little blanket," said Darson. "We didn't know we had tickets until yesterday when my friend said she had spares so we just left really spur of the moment.

"We decided to camp out to make sure we get good seats. We haven't been lucky enough to go to any of the other shows so we wanted to get here early for the final.

"It has been freezing."

Parr added: "I really didn't bring enough warm stuff. I just found out we were coming yesterday so I left work and jumped straight on a train to London. I'm absolutely freezing right now."

Shreya Kanani, 19, a dentistry student in Leeds, left her warm bed at 4am to join her friends in the X Factor queue.

"We are so cold," she said. "People's parents have been coming every couple of hours and bringing water bottles and extra blankets and socks. Other than that we've just been snuggling up to keep warm.

"It'll be worth it though. I had an exam on Friday and I couldn't concentrate I was so excited."
