X Factor runners-up Reggie N Bollie are celebrating after signing a record deal with Simon Cowell's Syco record label.

The likeable duo made it to the final, despite many people considering them a one trick pony. However they lost out to Louisa Johnson, who has also signed with Syco.

The duo are thrilled with their record deal, calling it a dream come true. They said: "We are so happy to be joining the Syco Music family and releasing our record with them. It is, literally, a dream come true for us to now do what we love for a living.

"We promise to work hard and show you all what Reggie and Bollie are made of. Here's to a fun 2016."

It was also revealed that they will release their debut album later this year.

Reggie N Bollie, real nams Reggie Zippy and Bollie Babeface, originally auditioned as Menn on Poinnt. They were mentored by X Factor judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini.

In the final, Reggie N Bollie performed their mash-up rendition of One Direction's What Makes You Beautiful and Reel 2 Real's I Like To Move It.

The X Factor tour rolls into Belfast on February 17 and 18, and into Dublin on February 19 and 20.
