Collabro are going global with a £1 million US record deal.

The five piece musical theatre group - who won Britain's Got Talent last year - are set to release an album in the States later this year.

It comes after their number one record here in the UK last autumn following their triumph on the show.

Their US album will be released alongside their second here in Britain this summer, titled 'Act Two'.

Sony label boss Mark Cavell said: “I am sure they will win over both the hearts and ears of Americans.”

Speaking earlier this year, Collabro told how they’re still in touch with label boss and BGT judge Simon Cowell.

Bandmember Thomas Redgrave said: “We see him every now and then. He introduced us during the Royal Variety and we talked about how we felt Collabro was going.

“It’s nice to have that input when we’re not meeting him face to face, to know he’s thinking about us when he’s away.”

And chatting about how they spent the £250,000 prize money, Richard Hadfield revealed: “We split it £50,000 each and gave part to our families.

“I bought a phone and laptop. Michael has a Louis Vuitton bag. We enjoyed the money, but it’s nice not to worry about taking my girlfriend out for a meal.”
