Cheryl Fernandez-Versini's act Reggie 'N' Bollie came in second place, but that doesn't mean they won't be given a recording contract at the end of it.

In fact, Simon seemingly hinted that they would be getting signed when he said the duo will "sell records next year".

Show boss and head judge Simon tweeted: "Unbelievable night. A lot to remember. And an incredible winner. Thank you to everyone who has watched the series.

"And congrats to Reggie and Bollie. The nicest people. They will sell records next year."

A source told The Mirror that both Louisa and Reggie 'N' Bollie would have been guaranteed a recording deal whatever the outcome.

The source said: "Either way both acts would have released at leas one song. There is a lot of interest in both Louisa and the boys - they will both work with labels within the Sony family."
