Jahmene Douglas has got his own record deal.

The X Factor runner-up, who lost out to James Arthur on the show last year - has signed with Sony Music's RCA Records imprint, according to Music Week.

He said: "I'm so excited about signing to RCA. They have such a rich heritage of amazing artists."

The 21-year-old singer said he can't wait to start recording his album, which is due to be released in May.

"Let the journey begin," he added.
