He might not have even made it to the final three on last year's X Factor but that hasn't stopped Craig Colton from teaming up with one of the world's biggest music stars for his debut offering - only Mr Robbie Williams.
Craig was one of Robbie's favourites when he joined Gary Barlow at judges houses and now Robbie's helping out the former biscuit factory worker with his songwriting.
Craig told The Sun: "I send Robbie my lyrics and he tells me what he likes and what he doesn't like.
"Hopefully I'll get to LA to see him in the summer."
As well as teaming up with Robbie, Craig has been busy preparing for the X Factor tour which kicks off in Manchester at the end of the month.
He'll sing two songs in the live shows, one of which is rumoured to be Adele's Set Fire To The Rain.
Taking to Twitter, he wrote: “Such a good day at rehearsals :-) an I'll set fire to the Rain!!!! Xx”
Also appearing in the live shows are Kitty Brucknell, Johnny Robinson, Marcus Collins and Amelia Lily who has just signed a £500K record deal with Girls Aloud hitmakers Xenomania.
