A 16-year-old from Britain has won the Australian version of The X Factor.

Reece Mastin moved to Australia from Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire six years ago.

His relatives back home hosted a party during the final, but they could only watch it through a friend in Australia's webcam.

When the result was announced they all jumped around, shouted and celebrated.

Reece's uncle Sam said: "He's won! It's amazing, absolutely amazing."

During the contest Reece performed with Kylie Minogue and his first single has already topped the iTunes chart in Australia.

Reece told the BBC: "I'm 17 tomorrow and it's not a bad birthday present."

His album will be released in early December.
