Britain's Got Talent runner-up Lucy Kay has secured herself a record deal.

The singer has signed a multi-album deal with Sony Classical, following her successful appearances on the most recent run of the ITV talent contest.

Kay - who will release her debut album in the autumn - said: "I can't quite believe it. I'm incredibly honoured and excited to announce that I've signed a multi-album deal with Sony."

Her manager Jonathan Shalit added: "I have not been so excited about a classical soprano since I discovered Charlotte Church.  Lucy Kay will be the UK's most popular soprano ever."
