Who is Lloyd Macey, how old is he and what is his background?

Lloyd Macey is a 23-year-old singer and 2017 X Factor contestant from the Valleys in South Wales.

He started singing at a young age and was on the stage by the time he was eight – leading him to sing in care homes and join local musical theatre troupes as he grew up.

Now he's just graduated from the University of Cardiff and the native Welsh speaker has stardom in his sights.

Favouring classic ballads, Say You Won't Let Go and Feels Like Home are among the songs he's sung on the show so far.

He's impressed the judges consistently with his performances and got through the Six Chair Challenge to the Judges' Houses round.

There he is being mentored by Boys category head Louis Walsh and pop star Mika.

How was Lloyd's nan involved in getting him through his audition?

Lloyd's grandma Christine, who is a huge champion of his talents, came with him into his first audition on the 2017 series.

She brought fish finger sarnies for Lloyd to snack on – and then decided to offer them to Simon Cowell as she'd heard he liked them.

As the sandwiches were consumed Chris sat with the judges and Lloyd wowed with Sam Smith's Lay Me Down.

Needless to say, talent and sandwiches won the day and Lloyd got through.
