Super exciting news for X Factor star!

There is very exciting news for fans of X Factor star Fleur East as it has been confirmed she has signed to Simon Cowell’s record label, Syco.

Though Fleur lost out on the big prize to Ben Haenow, it seems it makes no difference as now they are both signed – yay! The singer, who had been tipped to win the singing competition, announced the exciting news on her Twitter page, writing: “It’s official!!! The hard work starts now!!!”

The news may not come as a big surprise to those avid fans of the show however, as it had been rumoured that Simon was so impressed by Fleur’s talent that he planned to sign her weather she won or lost.

While we’re sure Ben is delighted for his fellow X Factor contestant, he may be wondering what the difference in being a winner and a runner-up are after this news!
