Ché George Chesterman, Jr. (born 1996) is a singer-songwriter from Basildon, Essex. Prior to auditioning for The X Factor, he used to work stacking shelves at a Tesco in Langdon, Essex, but quit to pursue his singing career. Chesterman’s father, Ché Sr., auditioned for series 3 of The X Factor in 2006 and made it through to boot camp.
With the eliminations of Seann Miley Moore on week 2 and Mason Noise on week 4, Chesterman became mentor Nick Grimshaw’s last remaining act in the competition. Chesterman was in the bottom two in week 4 alongside Anton Stephans, but was saved after only Cowell voted to send him home. He was in the bottom two again in week 6 alongside Lauren Murray and was sent through to the final via public vote due to the judges taking the decision to deadlock. He finished in 3rd place in the competition. Chesterman will take part in The X Factor Live Tour 2016.
