Britain's Got Talent's Jonathan and Charlotte both get solo deals

Jonathan and Charlotte

Britain's Got Talent's Charlotte Jaconelli and Jonathan Antoine are set to both release solo records.

It follows the news at the weekend that the pair, who finished as runners up on BGT back in 2012, are to split up after two successful albums.

It's just what Simon Cowell had suggested they did during their audition.

“They are to go their separate ways this year with Charlotte ­getting in first," the pair's manager Jonathan Shalit said. “She plans to release her own album in June with Jonathan set to release his in October.”

In a statement, Jonathan and Charlotte commented: "We have had the most exciting journey together ever since meeting at West Hatch High School in 2006 and are so happy for each other. To come second on BGT and sell over quarter of a million albums was beyond our wildest dreams."

They added: "To now be offered our own solo record deals by Sony Classical is the most exciting thing ever and we are thrilled to be going back into the recording studio so soon.

"For those that voted for us, bought our CDs and saw us in concert – thank you. We hope to see you soon at our own shows. Love Jonathan and Charlotte’.
