A visitor to two West Norfolk secondary schools certainly had the X Factor as he pressed home an anti-bullying message to students.
Sam Callahan, a former finalist in the ITV talent show, met youngsters at the St Clements High School in Terrington St Clement on Thursday morning.
He then visited the Springwood High School in Lynn on Friday.
The events were organised as part of a national campaign against cyber bullying.
As well as performing for students, Sam, who featured in the series two years ago, spoke of his own experiences of the issue and gave advice to students on how to protect themselves against bullies on social media and mobile phone apps.
A St Clement’s High spokesman said: “Everyone enjoyed the talk and found Sam and his team very approachable. It was an amazing experience for all.”
