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.

Jahmene isn't the first of last year's crop to land a record deal - as well as winner James, who has signed with Simon Cowell's label Syco, 16-year-old Ella Henderson also has a contract. She signed with Sony Music in December.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

Getting paid to exercise your imagination will lift your spirits. By the time you finish this assignment, you may be in better condition to pursue your primary goal. A brilliant idea for operating on a shoestring budget will come. At that point, nothing will stand between you and success. Stay calm and take things one step at a time.More
