X Factor stars wow crowd in Welwyn Garden City

X Factor trio Miss Frank wowed the crowds at an amazing Christmas light switch on tonight (Thursday).

The girls sang three of the hits that helped them shoot to fame on the hit ITV show, including Aretha Franklin’s Respect.

Speaking to the girls before their live performance outside the Howard Centre, they said they were excited to be in WGC.

Shaniece Davis, 21, said: “I can’t believe we’re switching on the lights, it’s like a dream come true.”

Graziella Affinita, 25, agreed saying a year ago they never dreamt they would be here.

The band were joined on stage by Scooby Doo, dance group Belles Girls and mayor Kim Langley for the countdown.

The extravaganza ended with the lights shining up Howardsgate, snow filling the air and fireworks lighting the sky.
