Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has something very exciting to announce.

Her X Factor act Reggie N Bollie have been signed! The 32-year-old confirmed the news with an Instagram snap yesterday, writing: ‘It is official!!! @reggienbollie have a record deal and have been signed by syco.

‘I am so proud of them! & It couldn’t have happened to two nicer people ! #ReggienBolliewepopchampagne. watch this space [sic].’ Aw. Chezza appeared to become close to Reggie N Bollie during their time on The X Factor, helping them land in second place behind winner Louisa Johnson.

However, she wasn’t the only one who was thrilled with their latest update. The singers (understandably) were also incredibly happy, Tweeting: ‘We are officially signed to @syco.

‘More hit songs n entertainment from 2016 n beyond.#ReggienBollieInvasion.’

Syco – Simon Cowell’s record label – confirmed the news by writing on their page: ‘The duo will release their album later in 2016.’

It seems Reggie N Bollie are going to be pretty busy over the next few months. But they had the perfect place to let off some steam last night – the National Television Awards. They sat alongside Caroline Flack at London’s O2 Arena, captioning a snap of them together: ‘Seated beside the gorgeous @carolineflack1 at the NTA.’

Unfortunately, The X Factor lost out on the Talent Show gong to Strictly Come Dancing. But we’re sure that didn’t dampen Reggie N Bollie’s evening. They also received plenty of sweet messages from their co-stars, with 17-year-old Louisa saying: ‘go on boys!!!’

The Xtra Factor presenter Rochelle Humes praised: ‘So so happy for 2 of my favourite boys @ReggieNBollie for signing to @syco music..Big congratulations. can’t wait to see you both.’ It’s no doubt that the announcement will have cheered up Cheryl, who’s reported to have filed for divorce from husband Jean-Bernard earlier this month.

And we’re sure she’s got lots of advice for her boys. We wonder what they’ll do next…
