Ben Haenow X Factor blog: 'My nan thinks I should be prime minister next'

Croydon's Ben Haenow gives Advertiser readers an exclusive sneak peak behind the doors of the X Factor house in his weekly blog about life on the show...

IT'S getting stressier and stressier by the minute in the X Factor house.

We'd just run through our ensemble today and they announced there will be a double elimination this weekend so I'm doubly nervous now.

We all are, that's taken a silver lining off everyone's weekend.

My nan is becoming an international televised superstar now. She was always a superstar but there was a video of my her on the Xtra Factor last week and now they want her to appear every week. She thinks it's hilarious.

At any age you can become a star so follow your dreams. She's the one who told me to go on X Factor and that I could be prime minister, so that's next!

I've been able to go home to Croydon a couple of times and spend time with my missus and my mum. I've been having sit-around-in-your-pants days not doing an awful lot!

I've been catching up on TV and eating a little bit of pizza, which I shouldn't tell the stylists. We create our own pizza at home, we have pepperoni, pineapple, olives, mushrooms and onions. Everyone is always unsure about it before they try it but once they do they never go back!

I've been watching the Chase USA. It's one of my favourite programmes, a bit boring but that's me! You can join in if you need to and learn a little something, educational and fun!

It's been nice to step away from the house because when you get back it's a bit fresher which is nice. After a couple of months in here it does start to get to you a little bit.

I've been trying to go on a diet and get in the gym to slim down.

Before I came into the house I used to swim for an hour and a half every morning and being out of the gym for so long is starting to take its toll.

There's a pool in the house but we can't use it unless there is a lifeguard there so it's a bit difficult. But we have a gym and sauna so we're not too hard done by.

So I just ate the topping of my pizza!

Everyone is just rehearsing like hell now it's getting to the stage where we have to nail it every time.

It is a lot of hard work. It's the best laugh I've ever had but at the same time there's a lot of rushing around. I wouldn't change it for the world but once you're living it, it's very different to what you see on TV.

This weekend is Whitney vs Elton week so I thought I'd go in the opposite direction to people's expectations and do a Whitney Houston song.

It's probably one of her most iconic songs. I don't think there will be too much movement this week but that's not to say it's not an upbeat song.
