The X Factor winner's single will be sold to raise money for a children's charity close to Simon Cowell's heart, it has today been confirmed.

Although the details of exactly what the song will be are yet to be announced, Simon has decided 100 per cent of the profit from sales will go towards Together For Short Lives.

The charity works with children's hospices and supports those who love and care for poorly kids who are unlikely to make it to adulthood.

Speaking about Together For Short Lives, Simon said: "I have worked with this charity for many years and I'm delighted that the X Factor winner's single sales will help families who are going through unthinkably difficult times.

"Together For Short Lives is such an inspiring and important charity which supports children all over the country. The money we hope to raise will really make a difference."
