10 things we learnt from Ben Haenow’s CelebMix Twitter takeover

Yesterday, Ben Haenow took over our Twitter account for a live Q&A session. The X Factor champion is currently touring the UK but he found time in his busy schedule to connect with fans and answer their burning questions. Here’s ten things we learnt.

1. Ben’s favourite thing about touring is getting to see some of his most dedicated fans. Isn’t that lovely?

2. His incredible new song ‘Rising’ was mostly written in just one day but other tracks can take a few weeks to finish.

3. He’s a true romantic. Ben’s love for his fiancé Jess is seriously too adorable for words.

4. Most important of all, we learnt what Ben likes to order at Nando’s.

5. Ben and his drummer Tommy Sugar enjoying singing along to ‘Bump N’ Grind’ by R. Kelly.

6. If Ben had a superpower, he’d love to be able to fly. It’s a bird… it’s a plane… it’s Ben Haenow!

7. He feels that relating to lyrics can make or break a song.

8. If Ben could swap lives with any other celebrity for the day, he’d pick legendary nature expert Sir David Attenborough.

9. Ben knows three ‘eggcelent’ words to describe himself.

10. If he had to go to a desert island, Ben’s first choice of partner would be his brother Alex. That’s brotherly love at its finest!

When I'm not writing articles or travelling through time and space in the Tardis, I love singing along to Avril Lavigne and other pop/rock music. I also enjoy hunting demons with Sam and Dean Winchester! Twitter: @MarkWillis1993
