Fleur has been recording her album in LA.

Having signed a record deal with Simon's label Syco after finishing as runner-up on last year's series, Fleur has been hard at work in the recording studio, and she went Stateside to finish off her debut record.

Simon told The Sun: "I've heard it and it's world class. She has discovered who she wanted to be. Sometimes you just spot someone who's not obvious and Fleur's a good example of that."

Fleur came in second place in the 11th series of the talent show, losing out to winner Ben Haenow.
