After announcing the news this morning on Lorraine, Jahmene also took to his Twitter to share the news.

“Just announced on @reallorraine that I’m now signed to SONY. God is good thank you all for getting me to where I am ! #muchlove !” Jahmene tweeted this morning.

He added: “Eeek .. My excitement always takes time to kick in :-p but I think it’s slowly slipping in just what’s in store for me :-)”

The news comes just days after it was announced that 16-year-old Ella Henderson and One Direction lookalike boyband Union J have also signed deals with Sony, serving as competition for the show’s winner James Arthur.

James has already experienced an incredible amount of success with his winner’s single ‘Impossible’ becoming the fastest-selling single of the year after shifing almost 500,000 copies in less than a week and being tipped to score this year’s Christmas number one.
