X Factor stars switch on Hatfield lights

SCREAMING youngsters filled the crowd for the appearance of one of this year’s X Factor acts in Hatfield at the weekend.

Diva Fever, who made it through to the second week of the ITV show’s live finals, rocked White Lion Square with dance hits including Barbra Streisand by Duck Sauce and I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor.

The camp duo – Craig Saggers and Joe Al-Smadi – then pulled the big trigger to beautifully light up Hatfield at 5.30pm.

Once again, as in WGC, the night was hosted by Heart FM and was attended by Welwyn Hatfield mayor Howard Morgan.

Hatfield was filled with fun-packed things to do across the day with funfair rides and side attractions aplenty.
