Jahmene Douglas has become the latest X Factor finalist to sign a record deal.

The "little man with the big soul voice" (as Louis Walsh might say) announced the news on this morning's Lorraine on ITV1.

He repeated it immediately afterwards via Twitter with the words: "Just announced on @reallorraine that I'm now signed to SONY. God is good thank you all for getting me to where I am ! #muchlove !"

Jahmene joins series winner James Arthur and fellow contestants Ella Henderson and Union J on Simon Cowell's roster.

The news has prompted an outpouring of goodwill for Jahmene, whose back story endeared him greatly to the public.
