X-Factor Australia crowned a UK teenager as the winner of this year's singing reality show on Tuesday night.

As one of the most-watched shows across Australia, more than two million viewers saw teen sensation, Reece Mastin, from Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire, become the winner.

Mastin, 16, who moved to the Down Under six years ago, will now release his first single, "Good Night."

Mastin's thrilled fan-follower relatives are overjoyed and in the mood to party.

"He's won! It's amazing, absolutely amazing," said Mastin's uncle, Stark, who lives in North Lincolnshire, to the BBC.

"We have a friend in Australia and she Skyped us and we watched it live as it was coming through on her telly," he added.

The teen singer's performance for his duet with pop star Kylie Minogue got the duo a standing ovation. "It's absolutely brilliant," said Mastin to the BBC on the duet performance. Minogue, who appeared on the show second night-in-running, performed a sultry and a cabaret version of "I Should Be So Lucky" on Tuesday.

In an interview to the BBC before his big win at the X-Factor Australia, Mastin said that since the age of eight he had wanted to be a singer.

"I did a school thing and was singing Robbie Williams. It's something I love doing," said Mastin, who presently lives in Greenwith, South Australia, to the BBC.

Mastin idolises Aeromith's Steven Tyler and said: ""He's been doing it for 40 years. That's what I want to do. He's amazing."

Terming his participation as the "best eight months" of his whole life, Mastin also thanked his fans on his Facebook page for their love and support.

Andrew Wishart, from Seaford, in Victoria, came second in the X-Factor Australia while Johnny Ruffo, from Perth, ranked at the third place.
