Britain's Got Talent 2014 runners up Bars and Melody will release a single next month.

The pair will release their take on Twist and Faith Evans track Hope through Simon Cowell's Syco record label in just a few weeks' time.

The song had originally made it into the Top 25 of the chart when first released almost a decade ago and returned to the Top 40 after BAM performed it at both their audition and in the live final.

Bars and Melody - Leondre and Charlie - will release their cover of the song which includes an original rap.

Charlie told the Daily Mirror newspaper today: “It’ a dream come true.”

A show insider added to the tabloid this morning: “Simon was surprised the boys only came third.

"He’s going to see how the single goes, but thinks they have a very rosy future.”

Meanwhile, BGT 2014 winners Collabro have vowed to work hard ahead of their debut album which will also be out next month.

The five piece musical theatre group, who have signed to Simon's Syco label, said: "We’re just going to work hard and stay true to what we do. Hopefully our music is what people want.”

The boys added: "The competition this year was the strongest yet. Bars and Melody were the favourites all the way through, so we never expected to win. We were so elated when we won. It was just the best feeling.”
