X Factor winners Real Like You reveal plans to move in together just two weeks after becoming a group

X FACTOR: The Band winners Real Like You are already planning on moving in together just two weeks after Simon Cowell turned them into a group.

The six-piece won out over boyband Unwritten Rule in Sunday's live show and already can't wait to get a place of their own.

Band members Halle Williams, 19, and Jess Folley, 17, exclusively told The Sun Online: "Ideally before summer we want to have a place together to work on our music in our spare time and carry on getting to know each other.

"This week we’ve all been staying in an apartment together, but after Christmas some of us will commute."

When asked if they could envisage any issues having six big personalities under one roof, Jess said: "We’ve done it for the past two weeks and it's been amazing.

"We get on so well. We’ll have to work through as we go along. That just proves we’re comfortable enough to express different opinions."

The girls are planning to have some downtime over Christmas before starting the New Year all guns blazing as they look to hone their sound.

"Our main goal next year is to come back together in January, get in the studio and write and write and write, get to know each other’s sounds and form something that’s new and original," explained Jess.

They have naturally been likened to Little Mix, due to their strong personalities and onstage energy.

But the girls insist there's no need for competition between the groups.

Jess said: "We’ve been asked quite a bit about Little Mix and we all look up to Little Mix, they’re our inspirations as a girl group. We don’t feel anyone can replace Little mix, no one can fill their shoes."

Groups such as One Direction and Little Mix are two of the X Factor's biggest success stories, but do the girls feel pressure to reach the same level of global fame?

"It’s such an amazing platform. We don’t feel we have to live up to their expectation, but that would be such an ideal outcome to get to that stage in our group," said Halle.

"We take every opportunity as it goes because you just don’t know what’s going to happen."

Their path to show champions was more condensed than any that have come before, with just four shows from the audition phase to the live final.

Jess said: "It was such a different format from anything they’ve done before we all got chucked in at the deep end.

"It was so quick. We didn’t do the show for long at all. I feel it did hit something a bit new. We loved every second of it it was stressful exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time."

And they only had nice things to say about judge and mentor Simon Cowell, who raved about them in his critiques at the weekend.

Jess said: "He is such such a nice guy. He was really supportive of us throughout the entire show and final.

"It was refreshing he wanted to do our thing. He knows what he’s doing, he’s been doing this for so long. We can put a lot of our trust in him to get to where we want to be."
