Jasmine Elcock is apparently set to bag a record deal from Simon Cowell after her stunning performance on the Britain's Got Talent 2016 final reduced his girlfriend Lauren Silverman to tears.

Jasmine had impressed on the ITV talent show from her first audition, when presenters Ant and Dec chose to award her their Golden Buzzer.

Her rendition of Cyndi Lauper's 'True Colours' won rave reviews in Saturday's final, and she came fourth in the public vote - beating fellow singer Beau Dermott, who had been a favourite to win for most of the series.

According to The Sun, Simon is now set to meet with executives at his firm Syco to pick which of this year's contestants they should sign - and Jasmine is thought to be top of the list after the mogul noticed Lauren's emotional reaction.

"Simon and senior record bosses were very impressed with Jasmine and the way she controlled her songs. He mentioned that publically," a source commented.

"I would be very surprised if she didn’t have a future, especially with her infectious smile."

A Syco spokesperson said that a decision had yet to be made.

Lauren was in the studio audience for Saturday's show, and Simon reportedly mouthed the word "amazing" to her after Jasmine's appearance.

Bookies are offering odds of 8/1 that Jasmine will release her debut single before the end of the year.

Other acts predicted to do well include runner-up Wayne Woodward, with odds of 11/4 on him recording a song with Michael Buble.
