In what probably proved the most closely-fought X FactorX Factor final ever, Rak-Su pipped Grace Davies to the post last night to be crowned winners of the telly talent show. Everyone was pretty chuffed about it all, including their mentor Simon Cowell who now reckons the boys will go on to become as big as One Direction.

And that's pretty bloody big.

Speaking to The Sun, Simon admitted it's the lads' 'class' that will take them far and allow them to compete with 1D's casual 70 million record sales.

Following Rak-Su's win, Si said: "There’s an awful lot of artists in entertainment who appear nice in front of the cameras but behind them they’re monsters.

"Not these guys. These guys have that same thing as 1D, a certain class. The group are so important to the show for that reason.

"When you have people like these guys who have ambition it’s great and there’s this wonderful afterglow."

Brilliant.

This all comes after the boys admitted there's a secret song in the Rak-Su vaults we'll never hear. Last week, Ashley told us about the worst song they've ever written saying: "The first song me and Myles ever did together," with Myles adding "And don't ask, because you're not going to hear it. Don't even ask for the name.

"I'd like to stress, that was when we were about 15."

In case you're wondering, it's called Blazin' MCsBlazin' MCs and NO; we can't find it online anywhere. Boo.

Now let's celebrate Rak-Su's win with loads of fit pics of Myles, shall we?
