Britain's Got Talent hopeful Ryan O’Shaughnessy 'has record deal with The Voice Ireland'

Britain's Got Talent 2012 - Ryan

Britain's Got Talent hopeful Ryan O’Shaughnessy has already appeared on The Voice UK in Ireland and won himself a record deal, it has been claimed.

Ryan, who will be seen performing on Britain's Got Talent at the end of tonight's show, has signed an exclusive deal with Universal Music, Simon Cowell's music label rival who work with The Voice.

The Dublin teenager impresses the BGT judges this evening with a performance of an original track, but his future on the show may be in danger.

The Daily Mirror report that negotiations are currently underway for Universal to release him from the contract, but they have so far refused.

“This is the latest spat between The Voice and BGT bosses," a source told the newspaper.

They explained: "Not only have they been rowing over scheduling, the bad blood has now extended to the talent they have on their shows. It’s ridiculous.

“Ryan is a real talent and ITV chiefs really want him to continue, but it’s up in the air at the moment.”

Britain's Got Talent 2012 airs tonight on ITV1 at 8PM.
