X Factor trio go retro for Xmas

The X Factor finalists get festive

The X Factor finalists have got into the Christmas spirit to record an acoustic rendition of Wizzard's I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday.

Luke Friend, Sam Bailey and Nicholas McDonald donned some cheesy Christmas jumpers for the retro video posted on YouTube with the hashtag #XmasFactor.

The final three appear in an old-fashioned living room with an acoustic band, also in Christmas jumpers, playing drums, ukulele, guitar and a glockenspiel.

Sam and Nicholas play percussion, with Sam accidentally hitting herself in the face with her bells at one point.

The former prison guard then tries to lead the lads in some silly dance moves during the instrumental.
