X Factor 2017 champions Rak-Su will be supporting Little Mix on their summer tour this July.

The Little Mix Summer Hits tour begins in Hove on July 6 before heading to Swansea’s Liberty Stadium on Saturday, July 7 and across other venues in the UK until July 29.

Rak-Su are a four-piece group from Watford who triumphed in The X Factor, in December 2017.

Ashley Fongo, Jamaal Shurland, Mustafa Rahimtull and Myles Stephenson were not only the first male band to win the competition but also the first ever X Factor act to have had three of their singles top the UK iTunes chart while being on the show, including original tracks 'Mona Lisa' and 'I’m Feeling You'.

'Dimelo', the group’s winners duet with Wyclef Jean and Naughty Boy, debuted at No.2 and has now been certified silver, spending three weeks in the Top 10 of the Official UK chart.

The day after being crowned the winner also saw Rak-Su achieve an incredible five songs in the iTunes Top 6 at one point, including Dimelo at No.1.

Australian sisters Germein will also be supporting Little Mix.

The trio have a kind of close musical partnership that can only be shared by siblings, and are kicking off 2018 with a brand-new sound. 

Whether jamming together at their home in the Adelaide Hills, playing alongside Arcade Fire and Catfish & the Bottlemen at the Isle of Wight festival, or opening UK stadium shows for Little Mix, it’s their mutual connection to music that has seen sisters Georgia, Ella and Clara make their mark.
