Britain's Got Talent's Calum Scott has revealed he's signed a record deal following the success of his first song.

Last year's finalist, who had been backed by Simon Cowell with a golden buzzer, released his cover of Dancing On My Own in March.

Without the help of major backing, the song took its sweet time to climb the charts but peaked in the Top 10 of iTunes recently and made the official charts.

It gave Calum a boost as he entered talks with record companies after Simon Cowell decided not to sign him up following the BGT final.

“I didn’t get picked up by Syco but the ball didn’t get dropped, which is something I was really happy about," Calum said earlier this year. "I was worried people would think that’s it, done, I had my few moments of fame. One of things I did think was that if I wasn’t picked up by Syco, maybe that was it for me.

"But I’ve been given some amazing opportunities. I feel everything happens for a reason. They didn’t pick me up and that’s fine.

"But I’ve appealed to other people and maybe I'll find my home with a different label and after some of the conversations I’ve been having, that may be the case sooner than you think. It’s super exciting times.”

And Calum was right about news coming soon, announcing last night that he had signed with Universal Music Group's Capitol Records label.

"SO stoked to announce that I'm now a SIGNED RECORDING ARTIST to @CapitolRecords @UMG Thank you to all involved," he tweeted.

We can't wait for more music!
