The Voice UK winner Jermain Jackman has announced that he’s signing a recording contract with London Records, part of Universal Music.

Jackman is currently in the studio working on his debut album with some "very special guests", and plans to release the record later this year.

The 19-year-old, from Hackney in London, said: “I'm really excited to be a part of Universal Music and London Records and I'm ready to make some great music.”

The singer's cover and winning performance of And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going previously reached number 39 in the UK iTunes chart.

Jackman, who was coached on the BBC show by will.i.am, claimed last month that he doesn't feel any pressure to succeed and isn't concerned about the fate of previous winners of the show.

Here's Jackman singing And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going on The Voice UK:
