X-Factor singer Jack Walton performed and took part in a question and answer session at Lancashire-based Nelson and Colne College.
The singer was interviewed by A-level students Oscar Nommay and Kate Whitaker, both aged 18.
They asked what X Factor judge, Simon Cowell (pictured below) was like in real life and what the singer had done since leaving the show.
Mr Walton, who was part of ex-Spice Girl Mel B’s team on the TV talent show before being voted off last month, also performed to more than 100 guests outside the college’s Farringtons restaurant.
Principal Amanda Melton said: “We were thrilled that Jack was able to join in our festive fun.
“He was a great sport, posing for photos and agreeing to take part in an a question and answer session. Our students certainly enjoyed meeting him.”
