X Factor UK winner, Jamaican singer Dalton Harris on Monday morning penned a heartfelt message to fans, thanking them for their support during the contest.

Harris prevailed as the favourite over his fellow contestants, Anthony Russell and Scarlett Lee, to be crowned the winner of this year's X Factor UK on Sunday.

"I have been trying to find words to describe my emotions and gratitude and thankfulness but none of them are enough," Harris wrote on Instagram on Monday.

"To say THANK YOU is an understatement," he added. "My dream is a reality."

He also used the platform to offer words of encouragement to young people across the world, telling them that there are no limits to what they can achieve.

Dalton, the 2010 Digicel Rising Stars winner, had been tipped to win the X Factor following powerful performances on Saturday of ‘A Song for You’ by Ray Charles and, during the duet section, the 2012 chart topper, 'Beneath Your Beautiful' with Emeli Sandé.
