X Factor hopeful Monica Michael said she "can't stop smiling" after getting through to the next round on the singing show.

The London youth worker was chosen by judges Simon Cowell, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Rita Ora and Nick Grimshaw to join the Six Chair Challenge, where she was knocked out in the 2014 series.

"This is like the best feeling in the world," she said. "I got through to the Six Chair Challenge last year so I know this could all end."

Michael - who split the judges' opinions with her rendition of Bill Withers' hit Ain't No Sunshine - joins 63 other acts who will next find themselves whittled down further for the Judges' Houses round of the ITV show.
